It’s been 10 years since Dr. Frazier performed an urgent spine surgery that truly saved my quality of life. To this day I have no more nerve or back pain. I am stronger than I was at 24 when I had the surgery and have not had any complications whatsoever. There is no one I trust more with my health... he changed my life.
I’ve never felt better. I’m dancing. I’m walking. I can run with my granddaughter. I can exercise more. I can spend less time in therapy because I feel so much better… Everyone I meet I tell how wonderful I felt after my surgery.

“Prior to my surgery, I was almost completely disabled... Thanks to Dr. Frazier, I no longer have any radiating pain.”
Prior to my surgery, I was almost completely disabled. I was on full-time disability leave from my job. I love my job and I missed out on everything my husband and I love to do. I couldn’t stand or walk for long periods of time. I was suffering from severe lower back pain – my spinal column felt like it was on fire. The pain radiated through both hips and seared down into both thighs and to the knees. About 12 hours after my surgery, I was able to do short walks down the hall of the hospital. Because of Dr. Frazier, I no longer have any radiating pain – my spinal column and hips no longer hurt. I’m now back to work as an editor. I can now walk, cook and have returned to an active relationship with my husband.

Dr. Daveed Frazier is one of the Neurosurgeons chosen by God to provide healing and comfort to those in need. In 2010 I was diagnosed with Advanced Cervical Myelopathy, and while every other surgeon I visited gave me very little optimism that I would recover without some type paralysis, Dr. Frazier was able to reassure me that he would do everything possible to see to it that I would be able to walk again, and to continue to have a life. Thanks to him I am able to walk, talk, and be independent. He was truly blessed with hands from God.

“[My aunt] commented that she had been to so many doctors, but she had not had any of them explain her condition as clearly as Dr. Frazier.”
My 89-year-old aunt had suffered for years with pain from her back due to a slipped disc. It was becoming more & more difficult for her to walk from room to room in her ranch home. She had started to walk bent over the last few years due to the pain. After consulting with Dr. Frazier, she made the decision that she wanted only him to do her surgery. She commented that she had been to so many doctors, but she had not had any of them explain her condition as clearly as Dr. Frazier. On October 4th, she had the back surgery & she has recovered well & is not in any more pain. She drove herself out to do an errand for the first time today. She is so thankful to not be in pain anymore. We both feel that Dr. Frazier is a very competent & highly skilled surgeon.

“For once, I feel like a normal 25-year-old & it's only been a week! I can't wait to see what the future holds.”
I have lived with chronic back pain for the past 6 years & I am only 25 years old. I have had multiple doctors tell me there was nothing they could do or they just wouldn't help me. Dr. Frazier looked over my films & medical records, spent 2 separates appointments, each an hour long, with us discussing everything he saw was wrong & how to address it. After agreeing to have him fix me up, I had so many fears for a 5th surgery. Dr. Frazier went as far as to call me to address each one of those concerns. He did not give up on me or push me away. He took my case seriously, made me feel comfortable & like I was important, not just another patient. I feel like a brand-new person. I am one week post op today and I am so incredibly thankful to have found him. Without his knowledge, talent & compassion, I am sure I would still be suffering immensely. For once, I feel like a normal 25-year-old & it's only been a week! I can't wait to see what the future holds. I cannot thank Dr. Frazier and his amazing staff enough for changing my quality of life for the better. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart, you will never know how much this means to me.
“My surgery was nothing like I expected. I was up and walking within hours, and virtually pain-free by the time I left the hospital.”
I was apprehensive going into surgery. If the truth be told, my surgery was nothing like I expected. I was up and walking within hours, and virtually pain-free by the time I left the hospital. Three weeks later, I was back to work and living my normal life. Dr. Frazier was wonderful! I manage a chiropractor’s office, and I intend to recommend him to our patients, when needed.
“[Dr. Frazier] went above and beyond to work with my insurance so that the surgery remained affordable.”
Dr. Frazier is by far and away the best Doctor I have ever had an experience with. Before seeing him, I spent a full year with a severely herniated disc in my lower back. After my initial visit, he knew exactly what surgical procedure I needed and took every step possible to make me feel comfortable. He went above and beyond to work with my insurance so that the surgery remained affordable. Without him I honestly do not know where I would be in terms of my health. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
“From the very first encounter, Dr. Frazier exemplified true patient-centered, quality care.”
My mother was suffering from terrible back pain that affected every aspect of her life. At age 61, she felt like a 90-year-old. I'm a nurse I Philadelphia, and Dr. Frazier was recommended to me by a physician colleague. From the very first encounter, Dr. Frazier exemplified true patient-centered, quality care. My mother's every fear was put to ease. On the day of surgery, he walked alongside her stretcher into the operating room-- at that moment she knew she was in good hands. We cannot thank him enough! My mother is now pain free and enjoying her retirement, and we owe it all to Dr. Frazier and his team.... AMAZING care!!

I’m a professional performer, actor/singer/dancer. The pain made it impossible to concentrate. I couldn’t sit, stand, or even walk for very long without it acting up. Being in constant pain made it difficult to perform at the top of my ability. I would experience radiating pain – shooting down my right leg – all the way down to my calf. The day after my surgery, I was able to walk up and down stairs. By day three, I could slowly walk 20 blocks. Because of Dr. Frazier, I’m now back to walking, running and dancing!

For 14 months prior to April 17th, 2017 I was plagued with unrelenting severe debilitating right sided sciatica radiating from the upper buttocks to the ankle. I could not sit nor stand without difficulty. I used a cane to assist with ambulation. My wife took care of me on a 24 hour basis. I was an invalid as a result of the sequelae of lumbosacral spinal arthritis.
I had problems with my lumbosacral spine since 2003 and had surgery for spinal stenosis in 2004. I did well for a few years but started to have problems with lumbar instability about 2011. Spinal fusion was suggested in 2014 but to me the procedure was so extensive that I declined. At that time I was not too symptomatic. The debilitating pains started to occur rather acutely in July 2016 in Grenada, West Indies and I decided to come to the US in August 2016.
In Feb 2017 during one of my acute pain episodes an old high school chum called me to ask me about my back problem and associated sciatica. He is a retired neurosurgeon. Within five minutes of our discussion he instructed me rather forcibly that I must get to see Dr. Daveed Frazier whom he described as an authority on new methods of spinal surgery. An appointment was scheduled and after reviewing my MRI scans etc ,Dr. Frazier indicated that he not only could help me but he would make me taller and the surgery would not be long. This was quite different from what I was told at a major orthopedic facility in New York.
This brings me to April 17th which was the day of the surgery. Needless to say the surgery was uneventful. I was discharged from the hospital in two weeks after 10 days of in hospital physiotherapy. This was followed by two weeks of outpatient physiotherapy at home. I am now walking one to two miles per day. Sciatica has resolved completely and I feel like a new person. I am about two inches taller and is upright when walking and is pain free. I cannot thank Dr. Frazier enough. He is obviously a master of his craft and is very personable. I certainly owe him for giving me a new lease on life.
I have recommended a few people to him already and I will continue to do so. At age 77 and a retired general and trauma surgeon myself, I can appreciate his surgical expertise as indicated by recent X-rays of my lumbosacral spine which is simply fantastic. Anyone who is planning spinal surgery or is plagued by disabling pains of the spine should get opinions from this well informed and dedicated young man. He is definitely a master of his craft. Dr.D I salute you- Two thumbs up !!!
