Dr. Hannibal was very informative and has a great bedside manner. He performed a minimally invasive lumbar fusion surgery on me, and I feel like I now have my life back, before surgery I had a hard time just walking to the mailbox, now I have started going for 2-3 mile walks daily. I can't thank Dr. Hannibal enough. I would recommend him to anyone.

PATIENT

I suffered with extreme sciatic pain for 12 years. After having tried everything recommended to alleviate it I still had no helpful results. I was referred to Dr. Hannibal for a second opinion by another doctor. Well...I liked him so much I decided to let him do the job. Surgery went well and he or his P.A. checked in on me at frequent intervals. Yeah, I ended up having rods, screws, and a bone graft, but the minute I could get out of the hospital bed to walk to the bathroom I knew immediately that my horrendous pain was gone. The surgical pain was nothing compared to the horrible pain I had been in for 12 years. I would recommend Dr. Hannibal to anyone. He's a straight shooter and doesn't candy coat anything. He tells it like it is and, if you handle the plain facts he's the guy for you.
