5 STARS for Dr. Dasher. I went in for cervical disk replacement. It took approx. and hour. Immediate pain was gone. I felt great. I walked the halls in the hospital several times that evening and then went home the next afternoon. I must say that it was a great surgery if you have to have one. Dr. Dasher explained prior to the surgery what exactly he was going to do. I highly recommend him and his staff at the office plus his surgical team. They all were very kind and informative!

I was experiencing severe low back pain with bilateral lower extremity pain ( worse on the right than left) and lower extremity numbness. Dr. Dasher assessed me, xrayed me, and in the same day ordered a lumbar MRI.....the next week I had surgery and I am completely pain free !!! Great treatment from an excellent physician.

Ortho Georgia Spine Center is an awesome group of people, everyone is so professional, nice, caring and helpful. Let me start with Smokey who is the guy who drives the golf cart in the parking lot assisting you with a ride if needed (which I used several times before my surgery and was so thankful for his job), to ladies at the front desk that sit there daily and assist each and every patient as you first come in to direct you in the right direction and onto the nurses on the 3rd floor who are all just wonderful and to Dr. Dasher himself who is surgeon that helped me. Let me give you the rundown on me, I was diagnosed with a L5 S1 Herniated Disk with Pinched Nerve, I had lost the feeling in my Right Leg and foot and had intense tingling like my whole leg was asleep all the time. I had lost the strength in my right leg and foot and developed a limp with all this going on. I am so thankful that Dr. Dasher was so aggressive in my situation or may not have had the outcome I have today.

Dr. Dasher and his staff are friendly, caring and very professional. He does not rush to surgery if there are other options. He takes time to listen to what you have to say and makes sure you understand what he is discussing with you. He shows you the X-rays or MRI, CT results so you have a better understanding of your medical condition. He is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend him and his entire staff/facility for any medical needs. Great man!

Dr Dasher and staff are the best!!! I had a back fusion of the L4 and L5.. I went in for surgery on a Thursday afternoon at 5pm and came out of recovery at 9:30pm. The next morning I was up at 9:00am walking the halls and at 11:00am I was in the car headed home. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Dasher! Also the hospital was one of the best experiences, Northside Coliseum in Macon, GA. Thank you Ortho Ga and Dr. Dasher, you are the best! Tim Passmore Dexter, Ga

I first saw Dr. Dasher in 2011. I needed surgery and he was the most honest and trustworthy doctor. After consulting several doctors he referred me to Dr. Lenke in Missouri. Dr. Dasher admitted that the surgery I needed was more than he thought he should perform. He sent me to the best. I am so grateful that Dr. Dasher isn't just a cut happy surgeon and was honest to me that he would prefer not to try to do the risky surgery that I needed. I will refer and use Dr. Dasher in the future.
