“Dr. Walkup performed spinal fusion on me after too many years of suffering. I was frightened as this is major surgery and I’m 66 years old but I’m so glad I followed his advice. He is an awesome surgeon and his staff is professional, efficient, and caring. My surgery was more extensive than we thought it would be going in but Dr. Walkup did an excellent job of repairing my back and allowing the nerves to decompress which is allowing me to regain a healthy lifestyle! Thank you Dr. Walkup!” ~ Healthgrades Review
