I have extensive issues in my spine, with degeneration and nerve compression. Referred to Dr. El Nihum by my pain management doctor. He reviewed my mri, records, history, thoroughly and gave me options. He was not able to offer me surgery due to complicated issues but gave referral to a doctor in Temple. For now we will follow up with other options and see the other doctor in fall for consultation. Very pleased with his thorough exam and work up and taking the time to explore and explain the problems and all options. Very satisfied!

I was referred to Dr. El Nihum after having an MRI that showed that I have a herniated disk that was pressing on my nerve root causing right sided leg pain, no reflexes, numbness and causing me to fall. Dr. El Nihum explained the procedure, examined me and scheduled me for surgery as soon as possible since I am in hurry to return to work. I will write another review after my surgery but for Now Dr. El Nihum has meet all my expectations.
