Thank you for the review Diana! We're pleased to hear of your experience and glad you found your way to Dr. McGowan and his team. Wishing you continued success!
Dr. McGowan and his team (Chelsea and Tess) really did give me my life back. I'm so grateful. When I went to them, I could barely walk. I was using a cane and shopping for a lift chair for the stairs in my home. They immediately diagnosed the problem as pressure on my spinal cord and recommended surgery. I was a little reluctant to have surgery, because I didn't have any neck pain. Chelsea was very patient and didn't pressure me, but gave me enough information to make my own decision. Dr. McGowan did a great job explaining the procedure, and the surgery went really well. After the surgery when I was laying in the recovery room, it was like someone turned on a switch, and I could feel my arms and legs again. When I first got up to walk around the hospital, my wife said I was walking twice as fast as when I walked into the hospital. The recovery was really pretty easy, with minimal pain. Now I'm walking around easily, hiking in the woods with the dogs, and doing things I thought I'd never do again. Like I said, they really did give me my life back.
Thank you so much for sharing Steven. We are happy you've found success with Dr. McGowan and his team, and we are grateful to hear your story. We wish you and your loved ones continued health.
Dr. McGowan told me in detail how my surgery would go and what my results would most likely be. He is very confident in his skills and it shows in his results. I am doing better than I could have imagined after my surgery and am so thankful that I had Dr. McGowan as my surgeon. My life is forever changed for the better.
Stacie, thank you for taking the time to write. We are so happy you had a great experience with our physician and his team. We wish you and your family the best and continued health.
MR. ANTHONY VIGIL
I was experiencing excruciating pain in my left leg and didn't realize that my lower back was the problem. I was also having major problems with my primary care physicians lack of understanding and pain management.
Then I met Dr. Jason E. McGowan MD.
After our very first consultation I was convinced that he understood what I was experiencing and gave me encitful information on my condition and how he could help me.
Dr. McGowan is a skillful Neurosurgeon and is supported by an incredible staff of professionals implementing the latest care techniques and medical technology needed to get the job done.
Together, they got me back on my feet, back to work and "frankly " gave me my life back.
I am so greatful to have had Dr McGowan and his staff help me through this most painful moment in my life.
I wish he were my regular physician and wish him only the best and continued success.
Anthony, thank you for taking the time to write this review. So happy you've had success with our physician Dr. McGowan, and his team. We wish you continued success in your recovery and continued health!
I could not be more grateful for the work of Dr. Jason McGowan. I am a healthy 25 year old that had a traumatic snowboard accident in Breckenridge Colorado. I have been involved with the sport my whole life traveling to Colorado for years to enjoy the different ski resorts. Unfortunately my most recent trip I severely broke my back and fractured my ankle in the midst of a fall. I was rushed to Denver to be operated on by Dr. McGowan, he installed two titanium rods and nine screws along my spine to hold my broken L1 vertebrae together. Never would I have thought I would’ve been in a position to even consider back surgery at such a young age, but under the circumstances I could not of been more blessed to have Dr. McGowan on my side. I am currently in week 3 of recovery, doing better and better each day. I am expected to make a full recovery and I have a whole new outlook on life and how precious it is. Have faith in this man and the work he performs, there is no better.
Thank you for writing, Jack. We are grateful you were connected with Dr. McGowan and his team and were in their good hands. We wish you success in your recovery and continued good health.
I couldn't be happier with the care I've received from Dr. Jason McGowan and his team, especially PA Chelsea Carruthers! They've set the standard by which I'll measure all of my medical care from now on! Not only do they represent the epitome of professionalism, they're also very empathetic and engaging. They made sure I was well-informed and comfortable with the course of my care, and made me feel as if I was in very good hands throughout. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gowan and his team to my family and friends!
Thank you, Tom! We are so happy you've had a great experience with Dr. McGowan and his team. We wish you continued health!
I cannot be more grateful and honored to have had doctor Jason McGowan and team as my care takers as well as doctor Chelsea Carruthers. Everything from start to finish was professional, they were empathetic, and just wonderful human beings. I went in with back pain that was debilitating and could feel an immediate difference the following day. Ive been overwhelmed with joy and can say I already have a better quality of life 4 weeks later. Prior to choosing this team I did my research and had 3 other opinions before choosing this team. Literally cried with happiness to feel an immediate difference in relief. They made me feel so welcomed and cared for. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. I can thank them for the rest of my life and still would not be enough gratitude expressed. From the bottom of my heart thank you Dr. McGowan and Carruthers.
Angela, thank you for your review and rating. We are happy to about your recovery and wish you continued healing and good health.
I suffered for over 5 years with a small bulging disc at T-7. Due to being in the thoracic spine no one wanted to perform surgery. I went to pain management doctors who performed steroid injections and ablations to stop the pinched nerve pain. Nothing worked for any length of time if at all. I could not stand up without the pain becoming so severe I had to sit. Basically I had become an invalid unable to do much at all. Finally I was referred to Dr Mc Gowan who looked at scans and said he would perform surgery. What a relief!! Finally I hoped something would help. He performed surgery and removed disc bone pressing on nerve with rod placement. It has been six months since the surgery. It has been a slow recovery but I am making progress. First time after the fall causing the original problem I can say I’m getting better.
Dr Mc Gowan is wonderful and his staff is so caring and friendly. Anyone suffering with back problems should ask to see him. I highly recommend him.
Thank you for your review, Virgena. We are glad you had such a positive experience with our physician and wish you continued healing.
Dr. McGowan and staff are amazing. For years I had pain from spinal stenosis and was told by numerous other doctors and surgeons it was just a weight issue. Dr. McGowan and his staff listened to my problems, worked to find a solution and gave me chance to live again pain free.
Thank you, Ginger for sharing your experience with our physician.
My visit was truly excellent! Dr. McGowan and his team answered every question, clarified everything in regards to my surgery and recovery. And, they did so with the utmost respect for my intelligence and professionalism - with friendliness and no sign of being rushed. I recommend them most highly!
Dr. McGowan was the best surgeon I could’ve had. After months of pain following a car wreck and a broken spine, he listened to my concerns and validated my pain. Within a week of the surgery, I was already feeling better with very minimal pain. I’m grateful for him and his team for actually listening, and giving me a high quality of care.
Dr. McGowan did a great job on my spinal surgery I had. I am standing much straighter and I no longer have the hunch in my back like I had before. I would recommend him for anyone needing spinal surgery in the future.
After a year of of leg pain and numbness which made it difficult to walk very far with out having to sit down. Now after a little over 3 months I am back to hiking and walking with out any stopping. Dr McGowan and team kept me will informed on and comfortable with what they would be doing. I am very happy with the results. Good to have my mobility back!
