All I can say is thanks to Dr. Prasad I now have my life back! I can do anything I want to do, I thank Dr. Prasad every day of my life! Also the Jefferson staff was so kind and efficient, they are the whole package. If you truly want to live life instead of sitting on the sidelines talking about your pain, then put your spine in the hands of a truly gifted surgeon.

Dr. Prasad is an extremely competent, caring and dedicated physician. He gave me the confidence I needed to have back surgery after years of pain and failed alternative therapies. It was the best decision I ever made. I am completely better and have no pain at all. What I really value about Dr. Prasad is his honesty. He tells you the truth about your diagnosis and your treatment plan and he spends quality time answering questions. He is a sincere person and really cares about patient outcomes.

Without a doubt, one of the most talented, insightful, intelligent, creative doctors i have ever met. he has literally been the ONLY doctor who allowed himself to think outside of the box and in doing so, saved my husband's life. I have been allied with the medical and helping professions for close to 40 years and this man is by far one of the most brilliant i have ever had the pleasure to work with, or to know.
in Bensalem, PA |

in Bensalem, PA |
without a doubt I wholeheartedly recommend dr. Prasad. he is compassionate, caring and an excellent surgeon, and my case was complicated.
in Southampton, PA |
I found Dr Prasad after a disappointing experience with an orthopedic DO who dismissed me as a patient after a failed surgery on my back. The minute I stepped into Dr Prasads office and met with him~ I was confident that I was in the right place. We looked over the tests that he ordered for me and he was confident that my prior surgery could be corrected. Dr. Prasad is intelligent, kind and skilled. I would highly recommend him. I have my life back and feel good about my health.
