I changed my doctor 3 times looking for a solution to the pain I was enduring. finally I was forwarded to Dr. Abou-Samra and told by his staff he was backed up 6 months for surgery, they took my files MRI and said they would give them too him. within 2 days I was contacted by Dr. Abou-Samra directly and advised he was moving around entire schedule and I would be having surgery on Friday! I gave his staff my file the previous Monday. that was how bad my back was, that he actually changed his entire schedule to fit me in immediately. thank you Dr.Abou-Samra for saving my life
As others have mentioned, Dr Abu-Samra is the man, best of the best (of the best). He has been my primary neurosurgeon since birth and has performed countless procedures, all without a hitch. He has saved my life so many times, and is always my go-to man for any head pain issues. I have trusted my life to this man many times before and would do so again without question or concern, because I know he's the best. I highly recommend Dr A to anyone and everyone who has a neurological issue.
Bed ridden prior to surgery for 3 weeks experiencing extreme pain. Surgery performed Wednesday morning, I walked Wednesday evening. By Thursday was able to walk approximately 1/4 mile and attend my son's football game. Dr. Abousamra is a master at his trade and will be recommended to anyone considering spinal surgery. He is the man!!!!!
This doctor is God in my eyes when it comes to neck surgery. The nicest and kindest person you can ever meet. I can not putout in words but if you have neck pains do not wait and prolong it but go see the man and you will see it for yourself plus I love his bow ties. He was educated in England and I was the only patient of his that requested the bone graft be taken from my left side due to the fact that I was a right footed soccer player and I didnt know if it would affect my future playing. Since he makes a cut on the right side of the neck he told me that he had to walk over to my left side to get the bone graft. Back in 2002 he told me that he has performed 1700 surgeries and I was the first one that made a request from what side to get the graft.
The staff is very helpful and this doctor is amazing! His reputation preceeded him and I was not disappointed. His bedside manner is kind and gentle, and his skills outstanding. I was on my feet 4 hours after cervical spine surgery because of his skill and expertise. I had to wait several weeks to see him for an initial consultation, but I would wait again without question. All subsequent visits/procedures were very timely. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone needing neurosurgery of any kind!
