Our Goal With Every Patient

  • Provide a comforting and professional environment for the patient to explore his/her treatment options

  • Make a timely and accurate diagnosis

  • Make every attempt to treat the condition without surgery

  • Make referrals to other non-surgeons as necessary

  • Prescribe appropriate medications

  • Promptly respond to your questions

  • When surgery is necessary, sit with each patient to discuss the goals, risks and benefits of the operation

Meet Dr. Johans

Dr. Johans

I’ve had the privilege of raising three girls with my wife Kathlyn in Boise for the past two decades and believe deeply in the lifestyle and strong community values afforded us by living in the Treasure Valley area.

I am a board-certified and Fellowship trained neurosurgeon with special interests in surgical management of spinal and brain conditions. I specialize in neck pain, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical arthroplasty and deep brain stimulation.

Meghan Galloway, PA-C

I am a board certified Physician Assistant and will be involved in your clinic visits, hospital stay, and in your operation as Dr. Johan’s assistant.  My favorite part of my job is patient education and follow-up care.

I will be the first person to greet you at the clinic and show you to an exam room. In addition, I will work with you directly to schedule and coordinate all your visits as well as be the point of contact for your insurance and referral physicians.

Patient Testimonials

“From the first appointment everything has been better than any other care I have had. He was friendly, honest, and genuinely cared about my wellbeing. His office staff was exceptional; answering questions, returning calls, and all were extremely friendly. I cannot say enough good about the entire experience. I will recommend Dr. Johans to any and everyone I know. And, so far, no more pain or numbness.”

“Dr. Johans saw me on a Thursday, and cancelled a portion of his planned vacation to perform urgent surgery the next day (Friday) and check up on me on Saturday. Tremendous devotion to serving his patients, including explaining options and procedures.  Excellent skill at surgery, including meticulous care at minimizing the size of the incision and hiding the scar in a wrinkle.

“Dr. Johans and his staff are top notch. I had suffered with nerve pain for about two months before seeing Dr. Johans. He knew exactly what was wrong and I had surgery within the week. I did not need ANY pain meds post op and the nerve pain was completely gone. I would recommend Dr. Johans to anyone who needs a neuro surgeon. He is absolutely the BEST!”
