Everything Dr. Chamas told me to expect with my Fusion surgery was correct. He answered all my questions in a way I could understand. He tried other ways to stop my back pain keeping surgery as the last option. He would call after I left the hospital to see how I was doing and his staff in the office and at Lenox Hill were professional and cared about my experience. I have and will recommend Dr. Chamas to anyone with back issues.

Dr. Firas Chamas is an extraordinary surgeon. He operated successfully on my fractured hip ? and my recovery has been incredible, with minimal pain and no complications. I am extremely fortunate to have found such a talented doctor and wonderful human being. Aside from his technical skills, he is an outstanding communicator. He explains everything thoroughly and thoughtfully. He is patient with questions and extremely kind and empathetic. I strongly recommend this extremely fine doctor!
