On the 5th and 14th of October 2015, the MRI revealed that I had a vestibular schwannoma, which is a benign intracranial tumor, and later was diagnosed as a meningioma (WHO grade I). My file, was then transferred to Neurosience Clinic at Civic hospital to meet Dr. Alkherayf and Dr. Schramm. I met both doctors in November and December of 2015. They showed me the pictures of the MRI and explained in detail the consequence of this type of tumor. During my meeting with them, I prepared a long list of questions regarding my surgery, and they kindly answered all of my questions in a simpler manner and suggested that a surgery is necessary to remove this type of the tumor. I also learned that Dr. Alkherayf will conduct the surgery and Dr. Schramm will be there in case his expertise is required. On March 7th 2016, the surgery was conducted and was successful, especially the facial nerve area, according to Dr. Alkherayf, was preserved. After three days and a half, I was discharged from the hospital. Overall, I received excellent care by all doctors and nurses. Again, I would like to thank Dr. Alkherayf and Dr. Schramm for their excellent treatment before, during and after my surgery.

My surgery to remove an acoustic neuroma was very successful. I am already in perfect shape in about 5 weeks. I was expected to recover more slowly. I have no side effects! Dr. Alkherayf and Dr. Schram performed a great surgery and their team and the hospital gave me the best care!

I was misdiagnosed twice from this doctor, now I have no choice but to get a very risky operation. He put my life at risk. I find he is arrogant and rude.

Dr Alkherayf did my neck surgery 6 months ago. He answered all my questions before and after the surgery and explained everything to me so I could understand easily. You can hardly see the scar. He is very kind and caring, always on time if not early and never makes you feel rushed, so glad I was referred to him.

On July 21st, 2015 I had my pituitary macroadenoma removed. I am a type 2 diabetic and the surgery could have had a negative result from all of the possible complications. Dr.Alkherayf was the angel that saved my life. This was the first surgery that I thought I wasn’t going to come out of and I’ve had many before. Dr. Alkherayf really listened to all my questions and concerns; he gave peace of mind before I went into the O.R. After the surgery I could not thank him enough for saving my life; he was so humble and down to earth. If you or your loved ones need a neurosurgeon, Dr.Alkherayf is a very skilled and knowledgeable life saver.

In October 0f 2014, I underwent a spinal fusion of five lower back vertebrae under the very skillful hands of Dr. Fahad Alkherayf. His knowledge, experience and surgical competences have given me an opportunity to enjoy my active life again. During the initial assessment, Dr Alkherayf demonstrated great patience and compassion. He listened attentively to my history of complex and serious health issues. After a comprehensive assessment, he recommended a spinal fusion. He meticulously explained both the process and the potential benefits and risks of the surgery. He was patient and forthcoming in answering my questions and concerns. He was always available and responsive to me from surgery through recovery. Ottawa is extremely fortunate to have this amazing neurosurgeon who has empathy for his patients and is so very competent in such complicated and serious surgeries.

He performed a spinal fusion on my L4-S1. Over the past 7 years, I have suffered from severe sciatica in my right leg. In addition, it was beginning to cause atrophy in my muscles in my right leg. Finding Dr. Alkherayf was a true blessing. It has only been 7 weeks since he has performed the fusion, and I can honestly say that the sciatica is completely gone. There is absolutely ZERO leg pain. The recovery process is long, and my spine will take many months to fuse, but my recovery is going extremely well. I am walking better than I ever have . Aside from the surgery, He has an amazing staff. They will go above and beyond to answer any questions that you have. Do not second guess yourself in choosing this doctor. He has given me a new life, one wihout pain.
