What Patients are Saying About Dr. James Lindley, MD, FACS

"Dr. Lindley was a God sent blessing! He performed my artificial disc replacement in November 2006 and changed my life! His superb medical gift helped me to be able to resume a normal life and continue to have one almost 10 yrs later. There are not enough positive words to express how much I recommend Dr. Lindley! "

— Memorial Spine Patient

"In October 2015 Dr. Lindley performed my 2 level ADR surgery. Leading up to the surgery I received tons of support from him and his WONDERFUL staff in making this surgery possible verses an extensive 3 level fusion with cage, considering i am in my early 40's. This was the surgery he recommend to reduce future surgeries and maintain quality of life for my age. I would recommend his office to anyone that needs this area of expertise! They ALL genuinely care for their patients and their QOL."
