Dr. Zada's Care Philosophy

Requiring a visit to a neurosurgeon or undergoing a neurosurgical operation can be one of the most frightening and life-changing experiences a person will ever have. Placing myself in the patient's shoes is the most important thing I can do to provide the best advice and care for any patient I interact with.

    My dad was diagnosed with a tumor in his brain a month ago. Prior to the surgery, Dr. Zada assured us that the risk of death or serious complications was minimal. He also told us that the surgery would take approximately 5 to 6 hours. My dad ended up coming out in great shape within just about 4 hours! At 72 yo, my dad is now functioning as good as before. I'm so grateful that Dr. Zada has saved my dad's life. I'm also very impressed with his confidence when he offers medical advice.

    At the age of 88 my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor. First doctor that saw her did not want to do the surgery. Her age and health background were a risk. Her cardiologist referred her to Dr Zada. He was confident about her under going the surgery and that it would save her life. The time she was in surgery was much less than the original time told by him and the first surgeon. She recovered very nicely, he head was not completely shaved, no wig was required. She is now 89 and good as new.
