Ratings for Dr. Jason A. Brodkey
You would have to search long and hard to find a doctor, let alone a Neurosurgeon, that is the quality of Dr. Brodkey. Not only is he knowledgeable and skilled but he has such a great personality that you become immediately confident in his ability and know that you chose the right doctor. I had severe spinal stenosis in my lower back causing numbness in both feet and the condition was worsening every month. The nerve damage was causing pains from my hip down. Dr. Brodkey operated on my spine completely correcting this stenosis. Operation went flawless with very minimal pain, no nerve damage or other problems that can arise with this type of major surgery. He connected a wedge between 4 & 5 and a cage on each side of the spine. His pre-op, post op. and follow up is 5 star to say the least. It has been 4 months since my surgery and I am improving every day. It is hard to find the words to say how happy I am that Doctor Brodkey was recommended to me by my family doctor. The operation I feared turned out to be nothing to fear at all. The outcome could not be better and I owe it all to Dr. Brodkey.
This man gave me a second chance at life. I had back surgery in May 2017 which was a complete failure. The original surgeon not only performed a failed surgery, but could not figure out what he did wrong. For about two months I laid in agony with the only relief coming from a pain clinic that blew the back of my brains out with narcotics (which still did little to alleviate the pain). Thank God I had it in me to get a second opinion from Dr. Brodkey, who spotted the problem in about 15 minutes! Dr. Brodkey then performed a second corrective surgery and it was a total success. I am agony free. I highly recommend Dr. Brodkey, particularly if you have had a previous failed back surgery.
Staff very friendly & knowledgeable. Able to ans.questions. Always very punctual. Never had a long wait. If it was more than a couple minutes someone was informing you & Dr was in room soon after. Never been in any facility that was more helpful. The knowledge, kindness, & caring of Dr. Broadkey was above & beyond any surgeon my husband or myself have ever seen. My husband is coming upon his one year since O R. The day of surgery he did fantastic. Dr Broadkey helped him to stand & walk in post op holding area where he discharged him to go home from. NO Recovery room My husband felt great. NO pain. He was able to walk very well. Discharged to home where he used a walker first couple of days (just for balance). He only had a couple of pain pills first & second day. When he stated pain was not really bad enough for pain pill. After assessment of pain discovered it was only surgical, not from back pain. He was given Tylenol that worked very well & controlled the pain. He was able to do his own shower second day after surgery as allowed. Also gave up walker & was walking well on his own. On third day walked approximately 350' to mail box & back with no problems. Only problem after third day was making sure he didn't over do it. He was ready for normal activity. He stated he wished he had found Dr Broadkey & had the surgery much sooner. The follow up spots. With the Dr were very informative. Dr Broadkey is WONDERFUL. We thank God every day for his help in giving my husband his mobility back. My husband is 65 & pretty much a workaholic. All kudos to Dr Broadkey. We gave him a 10 rating on a scale of 1 - 5. He is Great. My husband was first or he ever released from O R to go home
You may have to wait but it is worth it because when he is with you he gives you his complete attention. I have had two back surgeries and I thought I needed a fusion. He showed me I didn't need that and is working with me to find a diagnosis for my pain. He gave me a lot of time and a lot of information. He was caring. If for some reason I need another surgery I know he will be the one to do it.
Dr. Brodkey did a L4 laminectomy and L4-L5 fusion that completely eliminated my debilitating sciatic nerve pains. Everything has gone just as he indicated it would....even better. I'm healing just fine and looking forward to resuming a normal, active life. This doctor is top drawer.
Dr. Brodkey did a spinal fusion of the L5 S1 level.I can honestly say i had NO PAIN from the surgery. I was up and in a chair the 1st day. I was up and walking in the halls the second day.I had no pain at all. It hurt getting in and out of bed, but that is all. I was going up and down stairs the 3rd day at PT. I recommend him very very highly. He is great and I am very grateful to him. It has been 2wks. since my surgery and I have been shopping, eating out at our favorite restaurant,walking a lot outside, and NO PAIN for me at all. I am a 67yr old female. I was useing a walker for the 1st week and a half. People are surprised that I am not in any pain and I tell them that he is that good. I think he is just the best and I gotta tell you that I was so scared to have it done, really scared.....and he was so very good. He is good at what he does that is for sure.Everyone in his office were so nice to me. The people who took care of me at St. Joes were great.Everyone was very good to me.
