Dr. Abdul Baker is undoubtedly the finest, best Neurosurgeon that I have met.

You don't have to live with foot drop. After a knee replacement, I was left with no dorsiflexion in the foot of the operated leg. Dr. Baker was recommended by a neurosurgeon at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,NJ. Dr.Baker and his amazing staff performed a surgical procedure that reversed my foot drop. I am so grateful for his knowledge, competency, and for giving me my life back.
in Fargo, ND |
Dr Baker is an outstanding neurosurgeon, he did a wonderful job on my back surgery and I recommend him as highly as possible. He is very personable and takes time to thoroughly explain the procedure and what has happened and what the prognosis and recovery will be.
in Winger, MN |
Dr. Baker was very caring and concerned about my husband as a whole person and not just a bad back. Following surgery my husband was pain free and not suffering with constant back pain as he had for several years. I can highly recommend Dr. Baker.
