I fell in June. I was unable to use my right arm and leg and was very weak on my left side. Dr. Tawfik performed emergency surgery on my cervical spine. I had a Laminectomy with fusion on my cervical spine at levels C3 - C6.

The next day I could actually lift my right arm and leg. Due to Dr, Tawfik's expertise I am now able to walk and have use of my upper extremities. I know it is due to Dr. Tawfik"s care that I can now continue to live my life as I did before my accident. Thank you Dr. Tawfik and staff.
