Meet Dr. John Dickinson

Dr. Dickinson relocated his family to Idaho Falls in July 2018 and opened up his new practice in 2020. Dr. Dickinson is a board-certified Neurosurgeon and brings the latest procedures and neurosurgical techniques to Southeast Idaho. He currently sees patients in Idaho Falls and Rexburg.


Dr. Dickinson is an excellent surgeon, not only because of his skill, but because of how much he cares about the patient. He does not perform "unnecessary surgery" and walks the patient through all available options. I needed a fusion and could not be any happier with the results. It's great to feel human again.

2 and a half years ago I suffered a severe spinal chord injury in which Dr. Dickinson happened to be my doctor. Something I’ve learned about him is that he’s an incredible surgeon and an incredible doctor but he’s a far better person. I feel so blessed that I happened to get hurt the night that he was on the floor of the hospital. Everyone I tell that he’s my surgeon just praises him and the type of person he is. He’s prayed for me, comforted me and cried with me. He has my trust and has been with me every step of my recovery and I know he will continue to support me going forward.
This doctor wants you to succeed and he will do everything in his power to make sure you do. I know this, because I am a witness of it.

He is the best - Dr. Dickinson treated my spinal stenosis, fusing c5,6 and 7 and year later put a 'cage' between c4-5. He also did my carpal tunnel surgery just a few weeks ago. With every surgery he has called me the night before just to review the procedure and see if I had any last minute questions. This always helped ease my pre-surgery anxiety! I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Dickinson did a double diseconomy on my back lower back and I couldn’t be happier with my results. He is a great surgeon and takes the time with his patients to explain your needs and how he can help. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dickinson to anyone!

Dr. Dickinson recently performed an urgent biopsy on my mother. Dr. Dickinson went above and beyond for the requesting physician to perform the procedure in less than 24 hours to start a treatment and get results. He is thorough and truly wants the best for his patient. His skill and immediate action has made a positive impact with her treatment plan. The office staff was equally helpful and kind in the follow up care. Our family is forever grateful.
