“Dr. Stokes saw me quickly, told me I would need a Mobi-C artificial disc, and was able to get me into surgery quickly because of my pain level. He was very intelligent and humble. Now, almost a year later, I am 100% back to my normal activities with no pain. Other doctors recommended more complex surgeries with greater complication rates, and weren’t able to get me in to for surgery for several weeks. I am so glad I saw Dr. Stokes.

“I am two months out from a craniectomy and would highly recommend Dr. Fox.
I met with another surgeon first, who suggested something far more invasive than what Dr. Fox did, and I am so, so happy I continued my search. Dr. Fox is very calm, and conservative in his treatment (both of which I appreciated since I was very freaked out by the prospect of having my head sawed open).” – V. V.

I had a disc replacement (C5/C6) after spending one-year visiting pain docs and another neurosurgeon, but the decision was easy after discussing what needed to be done for a long-term solution.
