It's been over 8 years since my surgery and I got my life back after the surgery. I was scared I would never be able to go without pain medication. Finally after healing from surgery and a reasonable recovery time I was able to return to work and live a full life. Thank you Dr. Yocum. He has a great bedside manner and was responsive to my needs. His team was also very responsive and caring.

Dr. Yocom saved my life. I was in horrible back and leg pain that was left unresolved from treatment with another doctor. Dr. Yocom evaluated me, checked my MRI and determined the cause of my tremendous pain. He operated on me and I have been up and walking ever since. I am grateful that I treated with Dr. Yocom and would strongly recommend him to anyone.
