    The results have been very good. He took a look at my X-rays that had been passed around for 10 years and saw the problem right away. For ten years of suffering, it was over and done with in the matter of an hour.

    Smith, Dr Patrick N.
    He is excellent at what he does and very nice. He doesn't look down on you because when you go to see him he takes the time to talk to you and address all your concerns.

    Dr James Kang performed surgery on my spine, specifically a fusion and laminectomy. The surgery resulted in complete relief of all pain and other symptoms related to my back prior to surgery. He was rated excellent by all I talked with prior to surgery and was in fact called the doctors doctor.

    Gabriel, Dr. Hani F.
    He suggested an internal stimulator to be installed for my wife's chronic back problem, which has worked well. Sometimes you sit in his office for a half hour to forty five minutes.

    Cervical spine surgery: after 6 months of PT = limited rotation due to rods and I have disabling sustained ache whenever slightly bending over for more than 5 minutes. This persists, probably permanent I would guess though final prognosis unclear because of Lumbar spinal problems and their effect upon each other. Lumbar spine surgery: I'm now 5 months post-op and 6 weeks into PT. Progress very slow but positive. Old pain resolved but moderate to severe pain from surgical procedure which is slowly improving. I had severe compression of spinal cord due to stenosis with bone spurs and was near paralysis from each spinal area with loss of some functioning so surgery was not optional. I had followed conservative treatment for 10 years before surgery at my discresssion. though I was advised to have surgery 7 years earlier. Each surgery was about 5 hours and hospital stays 7 days. Excellent hospital care each time and good home followup. Dr. Kang very forthcoming and uses MRI's and X-rays to explain before and after surgery. There was much unavoidable nerve damage from last surgical procedure which translates into a prolonged recovery and unknown prognosis especially since extensive surgery on two spinal areas and their effect upon each other. Dr Kang is optimistic at this point. Excellent surgeon and good bedside manner. I was visited by at least three orthopedic residents and three residence internists daily and they guided and charter my progress diligently under my Drs. direction. Almost all of the many technicians doing pre-op testing had family members operated on by Dr. Kang and they spoke highly about him and his surgical results.Overall I have no complaints and I' grateful and satisfied with experience.

    Abla, Dr. Adnan A.
    I thought I was going to be paralyzed and now I can stand straight up. It is just so amazing. I am so impressed by him and the results that I have seen since the surgery. He is fantastic. I traveled about 350 mi to have the surgery done by him. His credentials are impeccable. His office is very nice, it is a very welcoming place. It was just a beautiful, relaxing environment. He follows up with his patients for at least a year. He is also a teaching professor at the University of Pittsburgh. He has 5 different offices ranging from Hermitage Pennsylvania to Wheeling West Virginia so that patients do not have to travel as far for the office visits, this is a wonderful service that he offers. He specializes in repairing problems that previous surgeries have caused. When I went to my family doctor, he told me I might have to wait 2-3 months to see Dr. Abla, but he got me in right away within about 2 weeks. He looked at all of my MRI's and suggested physical therapy first for about a month. He told me that I had a very high grade problem and was forthright with all of the information he gave me. I am so grateful for his help! I have a new life because of him!

    El-Kadi, Dr. Matt A.
    I found Dr. El-Kadi through my health care provider. I would tell anyone to go to him! I have referred plenty of people to him. He knows what he's talking about. If you are not a candidate for surgery, he'll let you know. He won't just operate for the hell of it. His office staff is beyond, well, you know. He gets you in, and gets you out. After my surgery, he got me back on my feet right away. He's just a no nonsense kind of guy. He's the whole package!

    The PA saw me after the surgery; I did not see the "Doctor" until my first follow up, weeks later. I also experienced "a spinal tear" as well

    El-Kadi, Dr. Matt A.
    surgery was successful but I was taken care of by other doctors afterwards I languished in pain until I fought for pain management to help I was never told what to expect after surgery and if I knew I would be turned over to other doctors I would have gone to someone else
