I had Roto Scoliosis so bad my spine formed the letter C in my back. In 2015 Dr Eltahaway did a spinal reconstruction from my pelvis to cervical spine. At this point going on 2 yrs I only take Ibuprophen for discomfort. Dr Eltahaway will be the ONLY Dr I will ever let touch my back as long as I live.

The entire experience with Dr. Eltahawy and his staff was excellent. Dr. Eltahawy is quiet and reserved, yet very knowledgeable and patient. He explained the surgery in great detail, answering all our questions. His staff at St. Mary Mercy Hospital was very accommodating when scheduling my appointments and surgery. From the arrival to the hospital to discharge, everything went great. It's an added bonus that he is close to home, but I would have traveled out of my area to see him, if necessary.
