Dr Abbasi gets right to the point, doesn't tip toe around. The first time I saw him he said right away he sees the problem but first we must take all the necessary steps, PT, Disco Gram & final decision. The Disco Gram really did show my major issue taking place. So we set up surgery to repair damaged area. Right away the pain I had was gone, now just a short recovery time thanks to the minimal surgery he preforms. He is very good at making sure your recovery is has painless as possible.
i had lots of neck and back where it was hard to stand or sit. So my local doctor told see Dr. abbasi. And i glad i did the pain down the arms and down the legs was gone right after surgery. if ever in my life i issues again with my back. Dr. abbasi is who i will see again. 5 stars in my book

I have had spine surgery in the past done the old way and they were pure hell. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Abbasi and after taking an MRI he told me (you are really in bad shape but the good news is I can fix you). And he has kept his word. The surgery went very fast and I was out of bed and walking 4 hours later. This was the most remarkable treatment I have ever had. Arlo Buchholz Grove City, MN

I was referred to Dr. Abbasi after many years of pain. He tried many things, but it came down to surgery. Today, I have little to no pain. Dr. Abbasi's bedside manner is outstanding, and the education and explanations he provides for a patient are just as outstanding. I would highly recommend him and his staff.

I seen a doctor in California for 7 years that neglected what Dr. Abassi compassionately careds for. I am now in the process of being healed and I thank Dr. Abassi and all his years of college. He strives to do what us ordinary citizens do not. The special thing is that we can all connect in a very ordinary way. He excels and the love for what he does shines through in his spirit each time I meet with him in his office. I am so great full that God lead me to the Tristate Brain and Spine Institut

After a 2 level micodiscecomyou and still in pain. Abbas I did all the right steps to get a Ollif fusion aproved. Which was done March 10th, all other medical options didn't work and the Ollif procedure was able to relieve all my pain and I feel great

i had not been able to sleep in a laying down position for the past ten years. I had chronic back pain for last 15 years. Since my surgery with Dr Abbasi in March of 2016 I have been sleeping in my bed for 6 to 7 hours a night without any pain. I no longer have chronic back pain. Best thing I ever did was come to the Tri-State Brain and Spine Institute. I would recommend Dr. Abbasi to everyone suffering with chronic back pain.

I had the Ollif procedure on L3 L4 & L5, on March 17th 2016 at Riverview hospital in Crookston, MN. I returned to work full time in hospitality & environment (a very physical job) on May 23rd 2016. I followed Dr. Abbasi's instructions, and all is exactly as he told me it would be. The pain I had endured for so long was gone as soon as I woke from the anesthesia. Patience has been very important. I will continue to highly recommend Dr. Abbasi to anyone that has spine issues. I have my life back!

in Battle Lake, MN |
I have had a doctor/patient relationship with Dr.Abbasi for over 4 years now. My last visit to him was yesterday. I had a total fusion of my lumbar and sacral spines 4 years ago and in January 2016, I had fusion of my thoracic spines up to T4. The reason I have required such extensive surgeries is due to my poor bone strength due to severe osteoporosis and scoliosis. Prior to seeing Dr. Abbasi in 2012, I was in constant pain and told by other surgeons that there was nothing they could do for me!
in Foley, MN |
Dr. Abbasi was very kind and understanding before,and after surgery. Answered all questions well.
The worse ever had an ollif was not asked about any other type of procedure I didn't know I had other options I have been in pain since with complete numbness down my left leg. When I called to tell h about complications he are me feel like he thought I was lying. Took CT scans and told me everything looked good and in place I got a 2nd and 3rd opinion and they both said everything was not okay now I have to have a redo surgery to fix me. Worse experience ever.
