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.

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.

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.
