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...more
