Dr. Bovinet was very professional and solved my back pain. He is a pioneer in his field. He was recommended to me by... an excellent orthopedic surgeon. Maybe I got lucky or maybe he is just that good. I believe it was the latter.read more

I hear a lot of people said the spine center is great but I guess that just the doctors after you get an appointment. ... I have been waiting on a call back for about 2 weeks for a appointment.read more

Fixed the problems and cordial people. Only downside is that it took a very long time to get things fixed.

I consider Dr. Bovinet at the Spine Center in Brunswick, GA to be the best back doctor I have ever known. I would... recommend any person with pain issues - and especially back issues to see him before doing anything. He is a real person, and, he is very easy to talk to. He spends real time talking with you and I got the feeling he was a good friend during our first meeting. Amazing!!! I never would have thought there was a doctor like him. Dr. Christopher Bovinet had a 98.4% success rate (rated number one in the world by the manufacturer of the Nevro high frequency spinal cord stimulators when he performed my trial. I was able to have Dr Bovinet install my trial high frequency spinal cord simulator to reduce or remove pain signals getting to the brain. It turned out to be 100% successful at removing pain . I had my test trial procedure by Dr. Christopher Bovinet on Thursday July 27, 2017. On the morning of Saturday July 29 the procedure pain was gone and, more importantly, so was my chronic back pain. For the first time in about 40 years, my back felt completely normal - except for bandages and some short-term restrictions on movement. I suggest that anyone with chronic back pain and perhaps considering back surgery, call the spine center and ask for an appointment with Dr. Bovinet. If it had not been for him, I would still be living in pain with no real hope of life without pain. At that time, Dr Bovinet was not doing the surgical implant. But his trial technique of using a needle to install a lead on each side of my spinal cord was so successful that I found the only other doctor in the area who would implant leads - rather than perform a butterfly lamindictomy. Dr Randolf Bishop in Savannah was willing to use the same technique as the trial that worked so well. He did a great job and unlike any other doctor I talked to, he was willing to implant the controller in the fat layer just underneath my ribs on front left side. That required tunneling through the fat layer from my spinal area to front. There are no nerves in the fat layer. Despite the fact that every doctor tried to talk me out of this location, I was very firm and got my way. It is a total success!!! Positioning the charger over the device can be very tedious even when you can see where to put it. If the device is implanted in the back, someone else has to place the charging pad - a major ordeal!!! 2 years later - I was in a bad car accident but my Nevro stayed in place. It stayed in place with no problems even though my car was hit by a runaway Trolley (on 3-29-2019). My car was knocked in the air across a turn lane and around 90 degrees and totaled. HOWEVER, because of the accident I need an MRI. The only local place who will do an MRI with an implant is American Health Imaging. HOWEVER, they will not do it without a Nevro rep on site first testing the unit.. Dr Bovinet now performs the implant in addition to performing the trial. bry - 6-18-2019 On Feb 27, 2020 I am experiencing pain that the Nevro unit cannot prevent. The accident really messed me up. I had to turn to Dr Topp for help. He set up a series of 3 shots to my back by specialist Dr Powell. You are put under for these shots and they help many people, but they did not help me. I will say that I am very impressed with Dr Topp. Even though I had told every doctor that I spoke to that it was a miracle that my neck wasn't broken, he was the first Dr to ask if my neck had been checked. I said no. So he did many x-rays there in his huge building. They looked bad enough for him to suggest an MRI. It showed 3 severally pinched nerves. He also prescribed PT.read more

My first visit was jan. 11, 2019 with dr. Gage. He told me what he wanted to do . My second visit was with rachael. She... went over my mri. I was scheduled for a nerve block and if I got pain relief i could have nerves burn. My first nerve blocked worked.The second nerve blocked did nothing. When I got up after anethesia I wanted to move around to see if I felt any pain. The nurse acted like she wanted to get me out fast. I felt odd about it When my husband picked me up we went to mcdonalds to eat and I moved on bench I felt pain. I didn't say anything to my husband. I figure when I got home I will know for sure. I was so upset I called when I got home and told them the nerve block didn't work. The girl said she will let dr. Gage know. I feel there was something fishy about this second nerve block. They schedule me to come back 2 days later . Rachael said I wasn't a candidate for nerve abalation. She said there was nothing else they could do for me and told me a chiropractor could treat me. I went to a chiropractor 3 times ( once a week.)The chiropractor wanted me to do a stretch 4 times a day. I actually ended up 9in more pain. I'm still in severe pain. Chiropractors don't help everybody. I have finally accepted the fact that chronic pain is just part of life. I don't know if I will ever be able to trust any body anymore. I rather live in pain than listen to somebody telling you a chiropractor could help you.I was very hesitate about going to chiropractor but I felt it was my only option.( Big mistake ).If anybody reads this review be careful. Do your homework before choosing this place. I can't hardly move without excruciating pain. MRI showed mild ddd mild arthirthitis and L4L5 right facet effusion. So now I dont have a problem with facet joint since the nerve block didn't work so what is it then . Same side the pain is on with more pain listening to a whacko from here. I wished all them pain to see what us chronic people live with on a daily basis. May God help you do the right thing for those in pain(Spine Center).I went back recently( july) to discuss other options all they want to do is try another nerve block. If you told me i wasnt a candadit for nerve abalation why try again. I told them from the beginning i had pain on both sides so why try now and do both sides. If i decide in the future for further treatment i want be coming here. I spent over $1200.00 and still no relief so why should i give them another chance. I asked about spinal cord stimulator but they said it only treats nerve pain but they were gonna offer it to me but i thought about it i called and said i didnt want anymire treatment. This was a waste of time and money.read more

Everyone has been very nice and helpful. A very pleasant group to visit from entry to exit. The only concern is the... time between shots which I realize cannot be helped when scheduling the procedures. Have recommended your center to others who may be having similar problems. The last (second) shot was very successful and am looking forward to the final one. Nurse Amy at the center has been very nice in helping me thru the procedure. Thanks to everyoneread more
