John Collier

My  nerve pain was so bad and other doctors told me there was nothing else they could do for me.   Dr. Hurst-Wicker said I was a perfect candidate for the Superion procedure.   What a difference it has made in my life!  My nerve pain is gone.  Dr. Hurst-Wicker is a kind, caring , competent doctor.  I would highly recommend him and this procedure to relieve nerve pain.

Jessica Leonard

My name is Jessica Leonard and I was a patient of yours off and on from 2014-2015. You helped care for my back and, when the time came, got me in very quickly to see the surgeon. The last time I saw you was in January 2015, I was 24 years old, hunched over at about a 45 degree angle, and had no reflexes in my left leg. I was sent do Dr. Song who performed surgery days later for spinal stenosis and herniated discs. I was told the probability of running, jumping on trampolines and other physically intrusive activities was very unlikely for the rest of my life
