Dr. Buchanan is nothing short of a miracle worker, and a truly kind and caring human being. I had a traumatic spinal injury that I suffered while in Mexico and he was kind enough to review the video of the CT scan that my wife sent from her phone in Mexico to help me understand how severe my injuries were. I was medically transported by plane to TMCA and Dr. Buchanan had a bed waiting for me. After a 9 hour surgery, I was able to walk and stand again the next day. The team he had was top-notch. He was very thoughtful in his post-op care and made sure I was able to resume all of the activities I enjoyed before the injury (minus cliff jumping lol). I would absolutely trust Dr. Buchanan with my life, and recommend him to anyone.
