Amazing Doctor!!

Dr. Porter is such an amazing surgeon. I had a plethora of issues with my back including lumbar spinal stenosis, herniated lumbosacral discs, spondylolisthesis, radiculapathy...the list goes on. I have been in excruciating pain for years but now 2 months out after a 6 hour surgery, I am practically pain free. I cannot say enough good about Dr. Porter and believe that God uses his surgical skills to heal people. I am so blessed because of my referral to Dr. Porter. Love him!!!

Saved my life

I was suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia due to my Basilar artery (rare form) and was seriously thinking of ending my life due to escape the extreme pain that I was in constantly. Dr Porter performed a Craniectomy on me in January 2008 (almost 10 years ago and he has given me my life back.

Spinal Stenosis Surgery

I would like to say much better I am, but it is difficult because the improvement is almost indescribable. Dr. Porter is a wonderful Doctor and between he and God my life is so much more enjoyable without the constant pain and all that went with it. Dr. Porter cured my spinal stenosis and all of the terrible symptoms associated with that. He also fused L4-L5 and used minimal hardware. I can now stand and walk all day if I choose with no limitations. Dr. Randall & his staff are wonderful and I am so thankful God led me to them.
