Thank you, Dr. Saville, for empathizing with my concerns to improve my physical health and emotional well-being! You were the only spine surgeon who listened to my stresses from back pain and tactfully identified the problems I was having from my previous spinal fusion operation. Together we teamed up with heartfelt determination to address the pain I was suffering with a plan that involved repair of hardware fusing several vertebrae levels as well as adding supportive alternatives. It was risky, but you were caring enough and brave to tackle this difficult operation. My functioning level has improved greatly and I am grateful we took the challenge. I want to thank you and your staff for your compassion, professionalism, and especially yourself for your God given talent!Arthur F. 2019-04-29

Dr. Saville performed surgery on my husband 2 weeks ago and the results are absolutely amazing. My husband was in so much pain prior to surgery, I am so amazed to see how well he is doing. My husband and I already recommended him and his office to our neighbors. Thank you. This truly is a blessed Thanksgiving.
