Dr. Raskas has been a great doctor. He’s done surgery on my neck twice. Front and back. He’s been very concerned on the results of the operations. It’s made a big difference with the pain I’ve had before the surgeries. I would recommend him to anyone who’s got neck or back problems. Just wish my lower back could be fixed too. But he’s explained the reason and possible results of doing it. He’s straight forward with his opinions. After reading the MRI’s and cat scans. He knows what’s best. His staff is very good. They are there when you have questions. They all are very good and concerned with their patients. I thank all of them for being there for me.
I had a cervical fusion C5-6 and C6-7, the staff was great and one of the easiest surgical procedures to get through. Dr. Raskas was kind and made sure I knew what to expect throughout the procedure and recovery.
In 2005, I had a cervical disk issue causing excruciating pain in my neck and arm. My chiropractor recommended I see Dr. David Raskas. It was a great recommendation. After exhausting non-surgical options, Dr. Raskas performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at C6/C7. The surgery was an unqualified success. I woke up pain-free and was able to resume normal activities within a few weeks. I have had little to no complications since. So, ten years later, when I was experiencing crushing sciatic nerve pain due to a herniated disc in my lower back I didn’t hesitate to contact Dr. Raskas. After studying M-R-I results he advised me to have a microdiscectomy at L5/S1. Again, the surgery stopped the pain and gave me my mobility back. It’s been almost four months since the operation and I am back to working out on a regular basis.
I saw Dr. Raskas due to neck pain and arm weakness. I was very apprehensive about the idea of surgery but after meeting him, I was instantly at ease. My surgery and recovery were uncomplicated and I am back to functioning without limitations or pain. I am happy I chose Dr. Raskas to perform my surgery. He and his staff genuinely cared about me and my wellbeing.
