Five Stars

Dr. Tibbs performed PLIF (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion) of L4-L5 and excision of synovial cyst due to Spondylolisthesis. The nerve pain down my leg was immediately gone after surgery, as well as my back pain much improved. I am only 6 weeks post surgery, still healing and back to walking daily for exercise (will be able to resume other forms of exercise at 3 months), AND able to sleep again! I was told I'm on the younger end of the need for surgery (48), but it was the only option. Dr. Tibbs, who is very conservative when it comes to the need of surgery, thoroughly explained my condition and the how's and why's of the progression of pain over the months prior to surgery. He was patient with me, answering all my questions, making sure I understood the process-he is a very caring doctor. I stayed 3 nights at the University of Kentucky Hospital post surgery and all the staff was wonderful! I can't rate Dr. Tibbs high enough---he's amazing!

Wonderful care!!!

We have have never experienced such wonderful care as we did with Dr Tibbs and his entire staff!! My husband had a ruptured disc and was in excruciating pain. Dr Tibbs treated him immediately! My husbands surgery and recovery couldn't have gone any smoother. We would definitely recommend this team and Dr Tibbs.
