My 54 yr old husb was having vision problems (papilledema) & Opthalmalogist Caceras referred him for testing at Wellington Regional Med Ctr for Lumbar Puncture/Angiogram tests due to suspected optic nerve swelling. It was determined he had extremely high Cerebrospinal fluid causing pressure on brain/optic nerve leading to blindness/death/hemorrhage etc. Dr Fakhoury sucessfully performed a VP Brain shunt surgery & is healing succesfully, surprisingly without any pain! I highly recommend Fakhoury!

Imagine a stabbing pain in your neck that radiates down the right side of your face… shoulder… arm… and ends in your fingers… I lived with that intense pain for over two years… The pain changed my life… no golf… very little sleep… when I did sleep it was in a chair… Attempting to remedy the problem… I went to physical therapy… had a series of epidural injections… nothing brought relief and in short… my life was miserable… Dr Faris Fakourhy was recommended to me by a physician and family friend

Be very careful my cervical surgery was done without the screws and plate. Its been over 3 years and i have suffered excrutiating pain. It appears the bones have not fused. I am having to have several procedures in an effort to avoid a second surgery, which by the way is common. My primary contacted Dr. Fakhourys office concerning this and was not even given the courtesy of a return phone call. So govern yourself accordingly. My roommate had a different surgeon and has no trouble at all.

I went to Dr. Fakhoury with severe lower back pain. I had 2 herniated discs in my L4/5 lumbar region. This pain affected my quality of life. He was the third Doctor I saw, and the first one I really liked. He listened to me, really listened. I decided to have the surgery and it was the best decision I ever made. He performed a minimally invasive transformational lumbar inter body fusion, and performed it very successfully. Here I am a year later, completely pain free!

We are forever grateful to Dr. Fakhoury. He performed emergency surgery on my husband's herniated disc. My husband also had Foot Drop which was caused by the herniated disc. Dr.Fakhoury is calm, compassionate,thorough, humble, and extremely professional. His office staff is friendly & professional.
