What Patients are Saying About Dr. Rafath Baig, MD

  • What’s really amazing is for the first couple of nights [post-surgery], you’re afraid to sneeze or do anything that might harm your back, but it never kept me awake at night, never once. I’m a happy camper. It’s a miracle in my life and I am grateful for it.
    — Larry
  • MUCH improved! My back still lets me know when I’ve over done it, but now, I can perform light to moderate labor without paying for it the next day. I haven’t taken Ibuprofen since two weeks before my surgery, and I have driven over 2 hours in one sitting without too much of a problem.
    — Mitch
  • A 180 degree change. Pain was gone and only mild ache on day of surgery. No longer required pain medications and able to sit without pain for the first time in 4 months. I am thrilled and believe the procedure was 100% successful to accomplish what was expected.
    — Marsha
