I just celebrated 9 years of intense physical activity since my fusion, it changed my life! Dr. Kader scheduled me quickly due to my needs and I have been doing what I love ever since. I was thoroughly vetted to make sure I was a good candidate before the surgery, something none of the other 3 surgeons I visited did. His nurse and staff were supportive and knowledgeable. I cannot recommend him enough.

I cannot thank Dr. Kader and his entire team enough for the fast action they took ! He has given me back a "normal" life. I had a chronic subdural hematoma verified just before Christmas. He set up his team and operated on me the VERY next day! Things could well have been different if this procedure had been delayed. Through his awesome surgical skills and PROMPT attention I feel I am making a full recovery. The entire staff at Va Hosp Center deserve 5 starts too. I'm a FAN.

Not only am I still in severe LBP a year-plus after surgery, Dr. Kader was misleading in his pre-surgical consultation regarding my insurance coverage. He told me personally there could be an issue, but that if he 'rewrites the scrip'(sp?), it shouldn't be a problem' in terms of the microdiscectomy being covered. Lo and behold, 1-2 months after surgery and I'm holding the bag for the entire cost, over 10K. I'll update if his office comes around but as of now, no rec no way.
