Dr. McCord relieved my pain and I am very thankful he did. He was very good to and was my second opinion Dr. He said the same thing the first one did but didn't put me in a neck brace which saved me 6 to 8 weeks of physical therapy

I feel that Dr. David McCord and Dr. Reva and all of the staff currently working in their office are wonderful people. I was told by several doctors that after a previous failed lumbar fusion, I would have to live with chronic dibilitating pain for the rest of my life. As a 40 year old nurse, I was unwilling to accept that as the final answer. After much prayer, I feel that God led me to Dr. McCord's office. 6 weeks ago, Dr. McCord did two surgeries on my lumbar spine that have already made a huge positive impact on my life. Only time, patience, and more healing will tell what the long term prognosis will be, but already I believe that COMPLETE AND TOTAL HEALING IS HAPPENING. When so many other neuro doctors and pain management doctors said that my complaints were unvalid or that I needed to learn to cope better or acted like my pain was minimal... Dr. McCord did a complete examination and ran specific tests that showed him the best procedures to do for MY SPECIFIC PROBLEM. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK DOCTOR MCCORD! Thank you too to Dr. Reva, Connie, and all of the other staff members for your support and the role that you played in giving me my life back! I still have a way to go before I am fully restored to normal health... but the finish line is in view!

Dr. McCord corrected a failed back surgery for my wife. The first surgery was performed by orthopedic surgeon. Several years later he repaired my back issues which consisted of 5 bad discs among other problems. Dr. McCord uses state of the art techniques as well as the only upright MRI equipment in Tennessee. We could not be more pleased with the outcome of our surgeries. The professional compassionate attention given by him and his staff is outstanding. As my wife told me, "I'm now able to live my life pain free". We're most grateful for the care afforded us by Dr. McCord!

After 30 years of back pain Dr Mc cord operated on my back and and replaced 2 disc with a artificially created cage. Within 2 months I was back at work with very little pain. Each month the back in better. I can now sleep and work, free of pain. I will recomend he and his staff to anyone one who has back issues. I went to 3 Drs. prior to th choosing Dr McCord and I believe I got the best Dr. He is professional and his testing equipment is state of the art. To my knowledge the upright MRI is not found anywhere else in Nashville. The quality of mylife has been greatly improved and I an apppreciate to him and his staff.

Thank you, Dr. McCord, for following through & getting an accurate diagnosis for my husband. My husband was unable to turn his neck at all. The only diagnosis we could get locally was a pulled muscle. After we saw Dr. McCord, he did several tests & knew what needed to be done. My husband had 2 neck surgeries. Dr. McCord & his nurse took the time to explain the procedure to us & what to expect. It was pretty much exactly as they described. After 4 weeks, my husband was able to return to work & back to his life. Thank you seems like such a small thing to say, but we mean it with all of our hearts. We are able to get back to our life! My husband has not only returned to work, but we are now back to being active in our church & with the youth. God Bless You & your staff! Always follow your gut with a patient, please! If you hadn't with my husband, his quality of life would be a lot different now!

I returned to Dr McCord , since he had performed my cervical surgery 14 years ago, and was now experiencing problems in another area of my neck. Once again , Dr. McCord fixed the problem with a proper pain management protocol. Dr. McCord is #1 in my book among the top surgeons.

Dr. McCord and his staff have been such a blessing to me and my family. While pain procedures had worked fairly well on my back problems for number years I had reached a point where they were no help. Therefore, I thought I would never be able to walk or sit again with out severe pain and I had decided early on that pain pills would be my very last resort. During Dr.Mccord's evaluation of my problems, being that I lived out of state, Dr. McCord 's staff made sure that all my testing and apointments were setup so that my wife and I made as few trips to Nashville as possible. After my evaluation was complete Dr. McCord explained my problems and how he surgically would solve my problems. It has been a little over four months since my surgeries and I could not be happier. I am working full time, walking around two miles a day, am able to do some moderate yard work and enjoying playing with our grand kids.

Dr. McCord helped me after I had 2 previous failed surgeries elsewhere. No one else wanted to try to help me get off all the heavy narcotic pain medications. I had to take large doses which limited my life because I was so doped. I was so depressed that I could not do normal daily activities with my family and children. They had lost their mother to pain. Dr. McCord was referred to me by a friend of a friend who had been through similar circumstances. I cannot sing his praises enough. He was so compassionate and I am so thankful I finally got to him.

Dr. David H. McCord's response
This story is common among Dr. McCord's patients. Taking large doses of pain medications helps control pain but limits lifestyles through all the side effects. Most people do no want to live in that state, and that is the reason Dr. McCord works with patients to break that cycle once he treats the underlying causes of pain.

Dr. McCord brought me from a downward spiral of mobility, unable to walk, to a state of health I never expected. Because of an on-the-job injury I had to progress through mandatory conservative treatments, which were of no help because I had three collapsed disc's. Due to the 6 years of this treatment before I was Dr. McCord's patient I have residual nerve damage, non-repairable. His expertise in repairing my spine allows me to be ambulatory. Though, I am limited, it is due to the Federal practices mandated treatments that prevented me from obtaining the necessary corrective procedures. Without his care my health would be dependent upon pain killers. Prior to meeting Dr. McCord my last pain application was Fentanyl patches, which did not mask the sciatic pain. If, you follow he advise, he can help you.

I first saw Dr. McCord in 2010 after 2 failures to fuse in my C6/C7 cervical spine. I had also herniated my C5/C6 disk. He did 2 surgeries in 2 days. The first day was to remove the herniated disk and do a bone graph. During that same surgery he redid the failed fusion. The second day he went in through the back of my neck and did 2 bone graphs and placed rods. Two surgeries were needed to give me a better chance to fuse this time. The surgeries were successful. Unfortunately I had a wreck a few weeks after returning to work. Dr. McCord ended up having to remove the rods to ease my pain from the wreck. It was successful again. Recently I had started having pain again. I found out I had herniated my C4/C5 disk. In August of 2013 he did 2 more surgeries. I was back to work in 4 weeks. I have been off all pain medication since 6 weeks after surgery. I have had a total of 7 neck surgeries in 7 years and I feel better today than I have in 10 years. I would highly recommend Dr. McCord.

Dr. David H. McCord's response
Dr. McCord appreciates you posting your story. It gives others encouragement who have multiple disk issues. Even with your complicated history, recovering quickly and coming off pain medications is the typical outcome for Dr. McCord's patients who follow his advice. May your health be blessed in the years ahead.
