I could not move my neck at all. Was in extreme pain. Dr. Johnson operated on my neck 8 years ago. Replaced bones and discs 4 thru 7 on my spine. Replaced all of it with titanium. Replaced some of the bones. He saved my life. I recommend Dr Johnson to anyone who needs spinal surgery.

Dr. Johnson was helpful before surgery in counseling me about treatment options, without pressuring me towards surgery. Now after the surgery, my pain is completely gone; I feel...Read More
