Great Surgeon, love love love him!!

Dr Tharp is a great surgeon, I have been seeing him for last 19 years, he has done all my surgeries. At the age of the 17 years old I broke the vertebrae at L 3 &L 4. He did everything he could so I didn't have to have surgery. He never wanted to do surgery on me because of my age, it was his last resort. I have had 2 spinal fusions in the same place L 3 & L 4, an total of 5 or 6 surgeries in all. Because of the surgeries instead of getting better my back has gotten worse, no fault of Dr. Tharp's, it a risk you take when have a major surgery & genetics play a role in also. In the next 2 weeks I'll be going in for another surgery to replace my spinal cord stimulator battery and he's the only surgeon for the job. I trust him with my life. Great Surgeon awesome person in all, you will always be in great hands with Dr. Tharp.

AVOID

Did my surgery in 2012. I was very unhappy w/ him. He is very condescending, egotistical . . . best to look elsewhere.
