Who knew you can be pain free and go home the same day you had spine surgery?? Dr. N is a genius. I arrived for my surgery scheduled for 7.30 a.m. By 9.30 I was done with surgery and walking around the pain free. I was home before noon and had lunch and dinner in the comfort of my home. I work desk job as a business owner. I had my surgery on Friday and was back to work on Monday, like nothing ever happened. I must also say as a business owner myself, I admire how he runs his medical office. Very clean, very modern, uses technology to enhance patient experience. It's like what you may expect in NY or California. Truly a boutique experience for us here in the Permian Basin.

I have being working in the oil field for almost 25 years. In the last 10 years I have had back pain and leg pain. I see my pain Doc and I had tried injections, pills, physical therapy, you name it. 2 years ago he wanted to refer me to Dallas for surgery, but I told him I could not leave my family to travel that far for surgery. During my visit with him, he mentioned that Dr. Nwojo is a surgeon that treats complex cases and that I would need to go Dallas anymore if I wanted to have surgery. Fast-forward 3 months later and I am absolutely pain free. I don't even remember the last time I was pain free. Dr. Nwojo was real with me. He told me that I needed a big surgery, and that is really what will help me. His office staff is world class. I had no idea a place like his office existed. He has x-ray machine so I did not have to go somewhere else to get that done. Everything was coordinated during one visit. AFter my surgery, I needed some physical therapy, and his he spine specific physical therapy in the same office. Boy I tell you, Dr. Nwojo and his team gave me my life back. I did not have to drive around town to do x ray one place, physical therapy another place, see doctor another place. I am just excited! I am waiting for my 6 months visit so that hopefully he can clear me for golfing because I feel great!

I was having frequent headaches and my neurologist ordered an MRI that sadly shown that I have a golf ball size tumor. He referred my to Dr. Nwojo. I was amazed with my first interaction with his office staff. They were very courteous and sympathized with me. They offered my an appointment the very next day, which was a Wednesday (mind you, he generally does not run clinic on Wednesday, but accommodated me!) He seemed very knowledgeable, and having read up on him before my appointment, I was convinced that he was extremely talented. But above all, he was human. I cried a lot in his office, he comforted and reassured me and my husband. We never felt rushed. In Friday, I had my surgery. He came in to see my on Saturday and showed me the MRI after surgery, which was clean as a whistle! I was discharged home on Sunday. The best news is that my tumor is not cancerous!!!! Dr. Nwojo is a blessing and a God sent to the Permian Basin. I wholeheartedly recommend him for any brain or spine condition. Even if you already have a surgeon you love, just go see him for a second opinion.
