My surgery was Lumbar Laminectomy L4,L5 with fusion. Before surgery I was barely able to walk across the street. It is now six months after surgery and I am walking 7 miles two times a week. I can bowl again and my wife and I dance regularly . After surgery Dr. Lotfi reported the nerves had been compressed so bad that he had to seperated them. Dr. Lotfi explaned clearly what he was going to do before surgery and how long the recovery would be. I highly recomend Dr. Lotfi.

A+! I suffered from lower back pain for 20 years. My primary care doc recommended I see Dr Lotfi. He reviewed my case, gave me my options, and explained everything in clear understandable verbiage. I decided on a Lumbar Laminectomy. Dr Lotfi explained all facets of the surgery. I had the surgery on March 21, 2017, spent a very comfortable night in the hospital, and my wife drove me home the next day. I am now pain -free for the first time in over 20 years. I highly recommend Dr Lotfi!

Dr Lofti did nothing for me. Gave me ani-inflamatory drug and PT for a month. Turns out, I had labral tears in both hips. My complaint was typical for labral tears. He had no idea. Complete waste of my time. And, to add fuel to the fire, he was arrogant! The staff was excellent!

Dr. Lotfi performed two successful surgeries on me this year -- a carpal tunnel release and a procedure to correct spinal stenosis (lumbar) and a ruptured disc. The procedures brought immediate and material improvements in my quality of life. Dr. Lotfi explained exactly what he would do and then delivered. I couldn't have been more pleased with my interactions with him and his team.

I had spinal surgery may 24th 2016, performed by Dr.lotfi, from the moment he walked into the room and explained my exray and what was wrong, I knew I had found the right Dr for me i have rods pins, and a bone graph taking place as I write this. From the 2nd day after my surgery ,i was up walking with minimal pain, minimal pain from the bone growing. Since my surgery Dr lotfi has shown nothing but the upmost care to me, for those of you complaining at least learn to spell his name correctly !

I was complaining about back and neck pain. Mild and unbearable. Was having nerve pain. He told me I had arthritis in my spine and pretty much good luck. I have since seen a great doctor in Reston. To find out I have a syrinx in my spinal cord. No help.

He is the worse doctor I had see, when I first saw him I told him about my situation. I needed carpal tunnel on both hands, I needed ankle surgery on both ankles, I needed back surgery and neck. I was begging him for help, I cry every time I saw him, I was hopping he would help me. I did not know where else to go, I never had problems with my hands, back nor neck. but all he did was a BIG NOTHING.OH WAIT... YES HE DID TAKE MY MONEY AND WASTED MY TIME. I FOUND THE BEST DOCTOR IN MANASSAS

I've been suffering pain and weakness, increasing over the past 12 years. In 2015, Dr Lotfi quickly and accurately diagnosed my lumbar stenosis and spondylolisthesis. He recommended and administered a surgical alternative that improved my quality of life for a time. Eventually, surgery was required and Dr Lotfi implemented minimally invasive surgical treatments that's immediately resolved the problem. If you're suffering from spine related pain and weakness, I highly recommend Dr Lotfi
