      I am worse off after my surgery than I was going in. He was not interested in dealing with a poor result. I would absolutely not recommend Dr. Camel.

      I’d been suffering with lower back pain for years, visited countless doctors who insisted I needed far more serious surgery. Dr. Camel was the voice of reason and performed surgery perfectly. I have never felt better.

      This note is in continuing appreciation of Dr. Mark Camel’s skills (communication, bedside and surgical). He completely resolved acute, incapacitating pain with a very successful microdiscectomy. He and his team at the surgery center – and all of the team at ONS were extraordinary. From diagnoses, to exploring options, second opinions, the surgery and the recovery were highly professional, suitably quick and a good as new result. Thank you. Vicki S., Naples, FL.

      Dr. Camel did the job and I was walking within a week. Takes the time to explain in detail what the issues are and what he's going to do to fix it.

      I would highly recommend Dr. Camel to anyone I know. He is a kind, confident and thorough surgeon. The hospital he is associated with, Greenwich Hospital is just by far the best hospital I have been to. What a team, thank you!

      Dr. Camel performed a fusion on my neck 15 years ago. He was diligent and sent me to PT first and did not resort to surgery right away although he told me if that helped it would probably help for about 2 years and I would then in all likelihood need surgery. Almost 2 years to the day I was back and he did the surgery. My entire experience from beginning to end was excellent. I was in unbearable pain prior to the surgery. I have been completely 100% ever since. I am so very thankful.
