      12/10 Dr Dagam did a fusion L4, L5, S1 on my Mom. Microscopic nerves were cut in surgery, leaving her w/Cauda Equina Syndrome. Dr Dagam told us Mom's bowel & bladder not working was from compression & swelling from surgery. It would go away. He lied, it's very permanent. It was also in the surgery notes that the error was made. After yrs of self cathing and struggling w/bowel incontinence, 7/15 she had a colostomy & supra pubic cath. She has back pain & many issues since. I do NOT recommend.

      Pain free thanks to Dr. Dagam. Had severe pain in my legs even making it difficult to walk without a cane. After he performed a spinal fusion with pedicle at St. Luke's Medical center in Milwaukee on March 10, 2015 I felt instant relief. Now one year later and completely healed I feel great at 76 years old and can do all things I used to do. I would recommend him without any hesitation. He has made my life so much better and I cannot thank him enough.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Dagam's Care Philosophy

      For me, skill is only part of the equation. In my practice, patients are the entire focus. They deserve my commitment to their needs and outcomes. And they deserve compassion. In fact, compassion is what drives me to offer the kind of individualized, comprehensive and advanced care I would want for my own family members.
