Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bidiwala "I take tremendous pride in supporting my patients and their families as they make the difficult decisions that are often associated with brain and spine surgery. Patients undergo a thorough workup and participate in a detailed discussion of their conditions and all available treatment options. Except for emergency situations, surgery is always a last resort and is pursued only after appropriate conservative management options have been exhausted."

One of the best doctors I have ever had. Courteous, caring, professional, really explained everything in easy to understand terms. I had a 3 level anterior cerivcal fusion 11/2017 and I feel great. No more pain in neck, headaches and arm pain. Wonderful to feel good again. So blessed to have found this doctor. He is an answer to my prayers.

The best neurosurgeon!!! I am so thankful to have had such a great surgery and process with Dr Bidiwala! I could not have asked for it to go more perfect!

My wife has has 5 surgery since 2012 doctors in Waco. Our primary Doctor told us about Dr. Bidiwala so we set a appt. with him. He was excellent and very detailed with us we knew that he was the right doctor for us so on June 12, 2017 he put 18 screws and 2 rods from C3- T5. I pushed my wife into the hospital and 2 days after her surgery she was up and walking again and the pain was not as bad as it was from the past 5 surgery's she had from the other doctors. We think so highly of Dr. Bidiwala

Spinal compression left me unable to walk and was shutting down internal organs. Dr. B's surgery had me walking the next day. Dr. B discovered the problem after other doctors had missed it for months. He was caring and compassionate, took time to explain X-rays, the procedure he was going to do, all possible risks, recovery expectations, etc - most important - he gave me my life back. I'll be eternally grateful for this amazing surgeon!

April 4, 2016, Dr. Bidiwala performed major back surgery on me, I am 71 years old and he placed screws and bolts in my back. I had major problems with my back for over 20 years plus, but since my surgery I have no problems whatsoever. I mop, sweep, and work in my flower beds and vacuum my floors, these things are usually a no no, but now I am able to do these tasks with no problems at all. Dr. Bidiwala has a wonderful bedside manner, he makes sure you know what to expect after surgery.

I have Essential Tremors. At the first visit, he told me that I was a candidate for Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). Dr Bidiwala and his Physicians Assistant Roxana Esfahani, always make me feel comfortable around them. They will sit and listen to all my questions and concerns. They explained things so that we could understand what would happen during the procedure. My quality of life is greatly improved now thanks to God and Dr Bidiwala. He is a skilled, knowledgeable, and caring surgeon. The best

Dr.Shaad Bidiwala is far and away the best doctor I have ever met and nothing I can say really does justice to the man: he is intelligent, a compassionate and caring person, and a truly outstanding doctor. I count myself truly lucky to have found him.

After doing a lot of research and seeing that Dr. Bidiwala was voted one of the best doctors in D Magazine, I knew he was the doctor for me! My husband is an engineer and is hard to impress and he was impressed by Dr. Bidiwala's knowledge and experience. Dr. Bidiwala and his staff are welcoming and very professional. I had spine surgery in July and am feeling better than I have in years! I definitely recommend Dr. Bidiwala.

Today, 05-19-2016, marks my husband's one year anniversary of his multiple, lumbar spinal surgeries. Thanks to Dr. Bidiwala, my husband recovered from his severe back and shooting leg pains that nearly prevented him from performing activities of daily living. His incredible work as a neurosurgeon was evident throughout the 8-week recovery process, as he was able to return to work without restrictions, 100% recovered and pain free. I would, of course, highly recommend him for HE IS THE BEST!

Bedside manner is impeccable. Very kind and concerned Doctor. My husband and I felt very comfortable on our first visit with him. Very explanatory and listens to you. I highly recommend Dr. Bidiwala.
