Dr. Fountain and his entire staff made my whole experience positive. I was scared and uncertain about my double cervical fusion, and he and Anitra (as well as the whole team) were a tremendous source of patience, support, wisdom, and kindness. Their level of patience and professionalism is unparalleled. I am very thankful.

Todd performed my lumbar fusion. He was very conservative in my initial treatment. Surgery was only recommended when the conservative treatment (PT, nerve blocks, RFAs) no longer was providing any relief. My surgery went well and 5 years later, I have no lumbar-related pain. Todd was incredibly informative at every step. He very clearly explained the treatment and what I could expect. I give Todd my highest recommendation.

Great neurosurgeon – Dec 09, 2019
October, 2016, he fused 3 & 4 in my lower back. Nerves in left thigh were severed w numbness of knee and lower leg. He gave me 50-50 that surgery would help. It did not but I am w/o pain and, through physical therapy and continued exercise can walk again. Dr Fountain did a great job.

A Keeton in Memphis – Oct 23, 2019
Dr. Fountain is a great neurosurgeon who performed cervical spine surgery with fusion on me in October 2017.. I no longer have chronic pain in my neck. I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering with spinal problems! Thank you Dr. Fountain for giving me my life back.
