I had a five-level anterior cervical fusion by Dr. Murad at Parkview hospital in October, 2018 due to severe compression in five areas of the spinal cord in my neck. I was referred to Dr. Murad by my neurologist, Dr. Sunku after I experienced numbness and weakness in my left arm. I was advised by several other doctors that my surgery was complex and that I might still have the same symptoms after surgery, but without the surgery I was at risk for worsening symptoms and possible paralysis. Immediately after the surgery, my symptoms were very much improved and my recovery has gone extremely well. I am especially thankful that I didn't have to go out of town for my follow-up visits. Dr. Murad and his staff, especially his Physician's Assistant Micah, were always respectful and courteous. Pueblo is very fortunate to have such a skilled neurosurgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs neurosurgery.

I developed an imbalance over fifteen years which progressively worsened. Testing and visits with an excellent neurologist Dr. Sunku led me to needing a specialist in nerve damage. I was lucky enough to have a recommendation to Dr. Murad. I had complete confidence in his skills from the outset.my spinal decompression surgery was a month ago. His Pa Andrew Glass and staff were top notch. I could not have been happier. My balance was restored. A pinched nerve in my wrist and thumb vanished. I am forever grateful for Dr. Murad and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Murad and team. J.G

I had a neck surgery and back surgery last year with Dr Murad both with excellent results. He and his staff were outstanding kind and professional. Dr Murad was complete in his preop counseling and education with complete explanation of my options. I am thankful for his skills and compassion

I had to see Dr. Murad after injuring my back during weightlifting. He did an excellent job in assessing my condition quickly and prescribing the necessary treatment. Unfortunately a year later I reinjured my lower back. I could hardly do anything around the house and had difficulty sleeping without severe pain. After non-operative management of the condition for some time with little success, I opted for a microdiscectomy. It was a stressful decision having a young family to care for but Dr. Murad allayed all of our fears and the surgery was a success! While my back will never be “perfect” again, I have regained a great deal of my mobility, can bend, work out, do laundry and pick up kids but most importantly I can sleep at night again. I’m so grateful for the care and treatment provided by Dr. Murad and his entire staff!

I was suffering from a severe lumbar radiculopathy. I could not even pick up my three-month-old child. I tried all of the conservative measures and ultimately decided to have surgery. Dr. Murad provided me with instant relief. I would not hesitate to see him again should I ever need further assistance with my spine. He is the spine surgeon that I referred my patients to when I practiced in Pueblo, Colorado

It was my pleasure to have been treated by Dr. Ali Murad, PA Micah Johnson, PA Andrew Glass, and the entire staff. I could not have asked for a better experience in terms of friendliness, respect, concern, and taking the time to listen to and answer questions. Approximately one month ago I underwent a lumbar laminectomy, and the pain relief I've realized has been remarkable I have not one negative comment or complaint about my treatment, and will recommend this team to others. Thank you Dr. Murad and staff!

Dr. Murad has performed 2 surgeries on me, neck and lumbar issues. I had constant pain for over 2 years and could barely stand or walk. Throughout the process Dr. Murad and his team were very informative and detailed of what they could/would do to correct my issues - I can truly say Dr. Murad and his team have reclaimed my life for me. My passions are fishing, hiking and cross country skiing and I am getting ready to participate in life again - not to mention how happy my wife is. We can now start to enjoy and live out our retirement plans. Here I am 1 month after my lower back surgery, following the Dr.'s orders and planning for the future vs always being in chronic pain. I would see others walking with ease and think to myself 'Why not me?'. Well thanks to Dr. Murad and his team that is no longer a question for me! If you are experiencing back pain and want to enjoy life again I recommend you contact Dr. Murad's office for resolution so you also can reclaim your life!

I recently had surgery on my neck and I have never felt better!!!! Dr. Murad is by far the best Neurosurgeon ever. I have recommended him to several people that are considering surgery. From the very beginning of scheduling the appt. and having the consult, to the follow up after surgery, I have never felt so comfortable with having surgery! They explained everything to me and never pressured me into having surgery! My biggest fear was having a lot of pain but that was definitely not the case. The afternoon that I had surgery, I had absolutely no pain! I actually couldn't tell that I had surgery! Dr. Murad and his asst. Andrew were absolutely the best!!! They made it a point to check on me even though they didn't have to! If I ever have to have Neurosurgery on any other part of my spine, I can guarantee, I WILL be requesting Dr. Murad! Thank you so very much, Dr. Murad, for making me pain free! Diena Sandoval

Dr Murad and his team are excellent and customer service is exceptional. Dr. Murad did a major surgery on my back but recuperation and healing was very easy because his work was so good. I would recommend this team to anyone looking for a neurosurgeon in the Pueblo CO area. Every person from the doctor to the receptionists are very kind, well trained and treat patients like people, not like numbers.;
