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

Great place to go, Dr. Hodges is the best goes above and beyond .

Terrific office. On line check was easy. Wait in lobby very reasonable. Dr Hodges was very attentive and very clear in discussing my issue. Surgery appointment was easy to make. Terrific MD office experience .

Professional, friendly, fast service.

Doctor Hodges has cared for me over some twenty years. He has helped to heal my body's many parts, including my shoulder, elbow, hip and lower back, knee, and ankle. He really is quite a remarkable fellow, and has, I've found, a wonderful sense of, and appreciation of, humor.

Love to go see Dr Hodges and his staff

Dr. Hodges was wonderful and very professional. He was very easy to talk to and he explained things very clear. The wait was a little long, but once you were called to a room it did not take long before the Doctor came in to see you.
