Stay away from Ragab!. He performed a lower back surgery on me 8 years ago. IT WAS A COMPLETE FAILURE. He fractured 2 vertebrae. How ? He never had a bone density test performed on an 80 year old male, ME.. In addition the screws to hold the rods were not installed horizontally but at about a 20% angle which I believe shifted my spine,causing a bend. In all I am in pain 24/7,particularly on my left leg from thigh to toe. I went to his office, was told 2 MORE ops would cure my pain!! DUH

Dr Ragab is a fine professional that in most cases.his surgeries and proceedures work. With me I had a Spine Stimulator trial and on one leg he hit a nerve and ended uo in the er. No communication from the surgical coordinator and my primary care physician. There are other choices that you will fare well.
