Doing excellent after my surgery

Dr. El-Kadi and his staff are remarkable and very attentive. Recommend him to all my friends and I give them his business cards. Lost 40lbs and working out every day. I would not be able to do that prior to surgery!

Way Beyond Expectations

Emergency back surgery in Nov 2017 L3-4. Arrived at Dr. El-Kadis satellite office in Greenville Pa in 10 of 10 pain on a Friday morning. He examined my records, saw the pain and the problem and opened a room at Passavant-McCandless. He then proceeded to change his weekend plans and operate on Saturday morning. I honestly believe I couldn't have made it through another night. He is ALL business and really had his game face on when he arrived at surgery prep. is nurses and staff at Passavant-all A+!!

Thank you Dr. El-Kadi!

Absolutely fantastic, surgeon! I highly recommend him. He performed a lumbar microdiscectomy on my L5 - S1. I have been living in pain for the last 16 months and am now 100% pain free. He is a very professional, skilled surgeon who is also polite and has a good sense of humor. He and his staff are also very organized and thorough with providing all the necessary information regarding the procedure and instructions for surgery. Thank you Dr. El-Kadi and staff!!
