I'm am wondering why my condition is the same after 3.5 yrs later.

Dr Nagib is an excellent neurosurgeon. He is considered by many neurologists and primary care doctors as well, to be the best neurosurgeon in Minnesota, and the Midwest. I have heard from several other doctors who have said he is in the top 10 of neurosurgeons in the WORLD. Dr. Nagib has done 3 surgeries on my cervical section of my neck. He has kept me not only alive but walking talking and breathing on my own. Without Dr Nagib, I would not be here.

Dr Nagib saved my life Feb 27, 1992. I always think fondly of that gifted Surgeon on the anniversary of my cerebral aneurysm repair.
