We Have The Ability To Change Lives

Neurosurgery is something that Dr. Franklin takes very personally. His younger brother suffered a brain injury when they were both quite young. As a result, Dr. Franklin became extremely interested in the complex nature of the brain, even as a teenager.

He continued that interest through college and pursued neurosurgery as a career. Now, he takes great pride in helping patients and their families negotiate the often complex decisions involved with brain and spine issues.

Dr. Franklin has completed specialized training in cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery at the University of Louisville and has recently co-authored a chapter in The Essential Neurosurgery Companion.

Dr. Franklin is the most fantastic surgeon that I have ever worked with. His skill in his profession is only surpassed by his care for his patients. I have always felt like part of this office "family". I will never use any other surgeon if its up to me.


Erika and Dr. Franklin provided excellent care to me. I was scared and in emergent need of spinal surgery. Dr. Franklin and the surgical and ER team at Skyline Medical Center quickly responded. It was my birthday and Dr. Franklin allowed my family to come into the holding area to sing me Happy Birthday before being sedated. Erika attended all of my follow up care needs with compassion and understanding. I am ever grateful for the excellent outcome. Thank you!


Amy was amazing! The nurse Markeela was very nice and the lady Marci was very nice and helpful.


I saw Amy Becton, PA and then Dr. Franklin today. The staff and doctors are kind, considerate, and caring. They took the time to explain the options for my brain tumor. I highly recommend this practice! Very patient and thorough.
