Specialties

Dr. John Blair Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.
    In addition to treating trauma to the musculoskeletal system, these doctors also deal with sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.

  • Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine

    If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
    However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.

I can walk again!

I had surgery by Dr. Blair in December. It was a laminectomy. I could hardly walk. The surgery has given me my life back. I am now walking regularly over five miles a day. I can't thank him enough !

the surgeon, dr. john blair, needs to shake up his staff

i was treated rather shabbily by one member of the staff on the phone. they are so busy that the phone appointment wait time was terrible. after waiting online about a half an hour and not being able to book appointment times that i wanted was told that perhaps i should go somewhere else. was not able to get an appointment for five weeks in the future. the staff never consulted with my oncologist concerning meds schedule.

Five Stars

I have seen Dr. Blair about 5 times. He didn't recommend surgery for my condition. Instead he recommended physical therapy and I am now feeling much better.

Get a second opinion!

I had been to see two other surgeons before seeing dr Blair . He recommended a minimally invasive operation when the other docs recommended a fusion. See him before you have an operation you may not need!
