Frank Hook, Back Surgery and Knee Replacement

In the Fall of 2011, I started having severe back pain. I decided to ask three different doctors who were friends of mine as to who they would recommend. Each of the doctors gave me the same response: Dr. Thomas Lawhorne. I was able to get into see Dr. Lawhorne the next week and during my appointment he told me typically, there are about three steps to go through to try and alleviate the pain before surgery, but that he would be able to accurately find the best solution after my MRI. I had my open MRI, at which point, he told me that I had Stenosis of the spine and that the bone was sitting right on the nerve.   Read More

Couldn't have had a better experience!

It was a excellent office visits.

Great doctor! Took time to answer my questions, diagnosed me after xrays! I definitely recommend! He knows his stuff!

One of the best Orthopedic surgeons around his bed side manner is fantastic and to top it off he's a GEORGIA BULLDOG

Dr. Hodges is first rate on both a personal and professional level.

Dr. Hodges has operated on my elbow and shoulder, and I have had no problems after a quick recovery. He will be operating on my other shoulder soon. I have recommended him to several people who would benefit from his excellent service.

I have always used Dr. Hodges for all my orthopedic needs. I have been so very please.
