Dr. George M. Wahba's Ratings
I've had 2 back surgeries for herniated disc in my lower back, right side L5S1 and left side L4 . The first surgery was in 1996 for the right L5 area. With the first surgery I was in the hospital 3 days and have an 8 inch scar on my back. Dr. Wahba just did my second surgery at the end of June on the left side L4. The surgery was done as an Outpatient and my scar is maybe 2 inches. I would rate my experience with Dr. Wahba a 10. I know it was several years between surgeries but Dr. Wahba is what I like to call a "Young Gun". He is very considerate of the activities I want to do and my quality of life. I was 100% pain free after the surgery. I didn't even need to take the pain meds that were prescribed. After 2 months I feel great and will start easing back into the activities that I love.

I thought my life was over until I met Dr. Wahba! I feel like I have my life back. I have suffered with low back and leg pain for years. I suffered with every step I took and I was crawling up my stairs. After having surgery, in the recovery room, My pain went from 10+ to 3. I felt better healing from the surgery!! :) Two months later, I feel 0 pain. I will highly recommend Dr. Wahba to all my friends who suffer with pain. Thank you, Dr. Wahba!!

I had very sharp pain in my left leg and after an MRI found that my l5 s1 disc had herniated and pinched the nerve to my leg. This pain progressed to the point I could not function at work and I was in constant pain. Dr. Wahba explained the very slight chance of recovery without surgery (knowing I had already tried therapy and the severity of the herniation), and the high possibility of permanent nerve damage. His staff and Mercy truxton took me in on Dec. 24 2013 and performed the discectomy on my L5. I was able to stand immediately with little help and after a short nap at home, able to have Christmas dinner with my family. I have had no leg pain what so ever since the surgery and have progressively regained strength and ability. I could not have asked for a better gift. Dr. Wahba is a blessed man with the staff and knowledge to do so well in his field. Please do not hesitate to see him and his staff at mercy south west. Surgery is his last resort but when needed, he is the best.

Dr. Wahba is a wonderful surgeon. I had spinal laminectomy with hardware (fusion) in early June and was back to work by August. Today I have zero back pain.

I was suffering from nerve pain from my back down through my leg. I went to Dr. Wahba and after trying several options that didn't relieve my pain he suggested surgery. I am extremely happy with the results, it's been a year since my surgery and I haven't any problems. My pain was gone right after my surgery so I am very grateful to Dr.Wahba and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Wahba is a very good doctor. He was concise and to the point in his diagnosis and is clearly very knowledgeable about my spinal stenosis. He is articulate and easy to understand as well spending the time to answer all my questions/concerns. The surgery went well and as explained. I am very pleased to have been treated by him.
