Torrance, CA |
I had lower back pain and sciatica that made me miserable 24 hours a day. I tried everything from A to Z. I decided on out paitirnt microdiscectomy. Dr. Siddique explained everything to me clearly. I had the surgery a week later. I immediately notice the sciatica was gone! I was sore/ muscle spasms for about 5 days. A month later, no pain & im so happy I did the surgery! Dr. Siddique is great! I wish I'd done this a long time ago...

Mid May 2016 I ruptured a disc. 13mm at L4-L5. I went to an orthopedic specialist who only wanted to do epidurals. The specialist said I could request surgery but didn't make any recommendations - just injections and pain meds. I WANTED TO DIE - LEVEL 10 pain going on 5 weeks. In a despirit move my wife called around and we got a referral to Dr Siddique. HE recommended immediate surgery. Three day later I woke up in recovery PAIN FREE. Dr Siddique is fantastic!!!!!! He saved my life

Dr. Siddique quickly and accurately diagnosed the cause of my severe back pain, guided me through the different healing options and helped me make the right choices to get back to full health. He was confident, competent and kind and his staff was very helpful.

Dr. Siddique preformed spine surgery on me in 2009. He was amazing and the surgery was very successful. I wish he was still taking my insurance, because I would go back to him. I trusted him completely.
