I recently had to have back surgery to alleviate some severe pain I was experiencing. Dr. Burns, his staff and the hospital did an amazing job in taking care of me from start to finish. My procedure went perfectly, I felt no pain afterwards and was actually able to walk later the same day. This was the first major surgery I ever had and was obviously nervous about it. However, none of my fears were realized and in hindsight wish I had done it sooner. The Spine Institute of AZ, Dr. Burns, Carson, and the rest of the staff folks did a fantastic job of scheduling my surgery asap, communicating well throughout the process and following up. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a diagnosis and/or surgical procedure.
