Dr. Syed has been a blessing to me. I have been fooling around for 20+ years with back problems and worked with another group to try all non-surgical and then some minor surgical options. I suddenly had terrible back pain where I could not stand up. Dr. Syed got me in very quickly and completed a laminectomy and spinal fusion on L3-5. His work was meticulous and now, after 12 weeks, for the first time in over 20 years I do not have back pain.

Meredith M. – Jun 03, 2020
Wonderful surgeon. The entire process went smoothly. Dr. Syed explained my problem in easy to understand language. The surgery went extremely well. I had very little discomfort following surgery. The final outcome was exactly what I was hoping for. I have no numbness and complete usage of my hand again with no pain. I highly recommend Dr. Syed for spine issues. No complaints at all!

Dr. Syed is a wonderful surgeon and great credit to his profession. He and his staff are top draw, extremely professional and at the same time make you feel very confident and comfortable. Dr. Syed is so good he makes everything seem so simple, yet he gives you his honest opinion and spends enough time with you to fully explain every detail and answer every question. His skill as a surgeon is awesome. I had a lot of difficult issues due to a prior fusion when I was a 19 years old. Now, 49 years later, Dr. Syed had to do a lot of nerve work and remove old scar tissue to open up my spinal canal, then replace one ruptured and one partially ruptured discs and fuse three vertebrae. My surgery was 100% successful, it relieved all my back pain, and restored my mobility. I am blessed to have such a humble, knowledgeable, conscientious, personable, and skillful healer as Dr. Syed to care for me. I certainly recommend Dr. Syed to anyone in need of an Orthopedic Doctor, and Surgeon.

Danny Severns – May 25, 2020
I first starting seeing Dr Syed for pain in my left arm that was continuous and throbbing. As a result I had surgery on three sets of neck vertebrae, c3 thru c6. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the skill he demonstrated as evidenced by my rapid recovery and removal of all pain! He is remarkable for his patience in explaining situations and possible remedies, presenting both pro and con of those remedies. He is very tolerant of all questions and answers every one in easily understandable terms. I recommend him highly for anyone needing help with any kind of pain involving neck or back. He is the very best there is and I was blessed to have been referred to him!

Dr. Syed changed my life by bringing me back to full mobility. He took great care before and after the procedure to ensure I was fully informed and well prepared. After all, it is also our responsibility to take care of ourselves and ensure we stick the landing. He has a wonderful team in office, pre-op, in surgery, and during post-surgical care. I am truly grateful for him and his calling.

What a blessing! I was in severe pain which limited my activity level. Dr. Syed and his staff diagnosed the issue and scheduled my procedure. He took time explaining the procedure, post - op process, and subsequent rehabilitation. I am happy to say 1 year post operation I have never felt better. I am back to being active...pain free! I appreciate his skill, professionalism, and patient care. Could not have been in better hands!! A big thank as well to his efficient and kind office staff

Had some very serious back problems which restricted some of my daily activities as well as limited my travels. After Dr. Syed's surgery, I have improved to the point where I am at 100%. I am able to do just about anything and go anywhere I want. Example, in Jan 2020, I am going on an expedition ship to Antarctica. Before this surgery, I would never considered such a trip. Dr. Syed is just simply GREAT!

I don't know to begin to thank Dr. Syed. I went in for neck pain that shot down my right arm. He then did neck surgery and after his magic hand were done my neck was back to normal. He is a very personal doctor concerned about how I was doing throughout the process. I have complete confidence in being a patient of his.

Satisfied Patient in Plano, TX – Sep 12, 2018
Dr. Syed performed surgery on my lower back Fall, 2017. My recovery has been phenomenal. No pain and minimum reduction in flexibility. I feel great. I highly recommend Dr. Syed. He really cares about his patients. He spent more time with me than any other surgeon I have had. He explained the options in more detail. He spent 20 mins on the phone with me when I was having problems and helped get my surgery scheduled earlier. It has been a pleasure to have him as my surgeon.
