Baltimore, MD |
I received a cervical disc arthoplasty (replacement) from Dr. Witham in 2016. He did an amazing job and I am happy to report the return of strength in both my bilateral upper extremities. I am extremely glad that I chose to do the replacement vs. the fusion and Dr. Witham has been incredible.

He has given me all the time I needed answering questions, both in his office and by email. He has performed several operations for me and if I should need another one, I would choose Dr Witham,

My surgery seem to be the greatest thing that had happened to me after several back fusion. To get right to the point, I was informed that I would probably go through 9-12 of some extreme pain.I made them my past pain management clinic. I was instructed that we would deal with that when get to that, so we are that point. What I need do is speak Dr Pettyes,Rory or Dr Witham. Make no mistake I believe my surgery help I just need to speak to them what we talked about. R GAMBRELL

Although Dr. Witham came highly regarded; I would not personally recommend him after seeing him for a consultation. During my consultation; a 1/4 of his time was spent personal texting. Now one might reason that it was professionally related except I swear he played an attached video because I heard what sounded like kids coming from the phone. Turn your phone off buddy!! Especially if your going to bilk the customer for what you charged.. That would be $750!!

A friend referred us to him which I think got us in to see him quicker than it might have been...in only a week! Two weeks later my husband had surgery, ACDF on C5/6. My husband's recovery has been remarkable so far. It was on Dec. 4, 2015 and he is back to work. The best most comforting thing is that Dr. Witham remains available to us for any questions we have. We hear back from him very quickly....and that I think is rare and wonderful.
