I saw Dr. Abbed for a second opinion and he saved me from a life of paralysis. He direct admitted me and performed a cyst resection, foraminectomy, facectomy and laminectomy WITHOUT a spinal fusion. Five weeks out and other than some minor aches and BLT precautions I am fit as an ambulatory fiddle. His team of fellows are amazing, super friendly and knowledgeable. They took very good care of me and made sure I was at ease with the emergency procedure.

I choose Dr. Abbed after 3 other consultations. He was able to do a less invasive revision surgery and I was extremely pleased with its success. He was a good listener, precise in reviewing past medical history & tests and willing to answer all of my questions before during and after the surgery. His entire staff were professional, courteous and easy to communicate with. I loved Yale Univ. Hospital and everyone from bottom to top! I recommend Dr. Abbed highly.

It took me 2.5 months to get my first-appointment with Dr Abbed but it was well worth the wait. He takes a conservative approach and considers all options without rushing into unnecessary surgeries. I had my surgery less than two weeks ago and my pain was gone when I woke up! Everyone on his team is amazing with how they treat you as a patient! I would definitely recommend him to anyone with back issues!

Dr. Abbed is a rockstar. I had a rare condition with major nerves compressed by an extra bone (not a spur, an entire extra bone). Dr. Abbed resected it & removed the pressure on the nerves with no damage, something other doctors thought was impossible. Dr. Abbed is extremely compassionate. He involved me in planning my surgery, listened to my concerns without rushing me, and completed a major surgery that usually involves opening the entire back in only 3". I am so grateful that I found him.

Both knowledgeable and professional, Dr.Abbed has the natural ability to make his patients feel comfortable and at ease. He does an excellent job explaining things in a manner that the you understand. Most importantly, he never rushes out. He takes extra care to be sure you completely understand what he's saying, and allows ample time for you to ask questions. I left feeling I could really trust Dr. Abbed. All this and a gifted surgeon? What more could you ask for.

Dr. Abbed performed a TLIF procedure on me this past fall. I would highly recommend him and his team. He spent much time with both my wife and I explaining my options as well as the actual surgery, too. He has a tremendously refreshing bedside manner is is very warm and caring. I would suggest anyone with spine or lower back issue bring their MRI and have him and his staff do an evaluation. I have no nerve or lower back pain anymore and can finally sleep thru the night!

I went to Dr. Abbed for back surgery after seeing what a great job he did for my son neck and back. He was the second surgeon I consulted with. The first did not want to do the surgery because of my weight. He did the surgery and the pain is gone and I was able to go back to my nursing job working 12 hour shifts. He also has amazing office staff and a really good PA that he works with.
