Dr Obasi is BEST in my book! Dr Obasi saved me from life as a vegetable or possibly even death! He did a bilateral craniectomy that corrected my traumatic brain injury!! It took some time, but I have fully recovered from the injury!! Thank you, Dr Obasi!!!

Because of Dr. Obasi's extreme patience and skill, I have no numbness or paralysis after surgery for a cyst that had completely encased my spine. I came out of Recovery nearly pain free. Surgery pain was controlled by minor medications rather than the high-powered stuff. This Doctor is amazing!
