Dr. El-Kadi performed a fusion of my 3, 4 and 5 vertebrae. Without warning on May 24, 2016 I was overcome with pain and could not walk. Dr. El-Kadi admitted me to the hospital and on Memorial Day Saturday morning he operated on me. One year later I am literally 100% better and doing all my previous activities with no pain or restrictions. I exercise 6 days a week doing P90X. Dr. El-Kadi and all his staff were wonderful and caring people.

Absolutely fantastic, surgeon! I highly recommend him. He performed a lumbar microdiscectomy on my L5 - S1. I have been living in pain for the last 16 months and am now 100% pain free. He is a very professional, skilled surgeon who is also polite and has a good sense of humor. He and his staff are also very organized and thorough with providing all the necessary information regarding the procedure and instructions for surgery. Thank you Dr. El-Kadi and staff!!

After dealing with a pinched nerve between C6 and C7 for 2 years, I had my initial consultation with Dr. El-Kadi on a Friday and surgery the following Monday. Ten days later I was out of my soft collar and started getting back to normal.

My first impression when I entered the Wexford office was their kindness and concern. They were thorough and professional. Dr. El-Kadi was polite and to the point as to what the MRI showed, what needed to be done and my treatment options.

On May 26th 2015, I had my first surgery, Dr. El-Kadi attempted a microdisectomy, however do to unforeseen complications it was not successful. On Dec 8th 2015 Dr. El-Kadi performed L4 thru S1 Spinal fusion surgery. I was making good progress, (walking with a cane) until I fell down 4 steps the night my staples were removed, & fell again a few weeks later. I spent weeks using a walker & lots of PT, but finally improved. Back to work 2 weeks now as of 5/27/16 I Got my life back. Thank You Sir!
