I cannot stress how much I appreciate Dr Abdelgawad, he is my daughter's dr and she endured a lengthening almost two years ago. He saved us from having this surgery in Dallas and he has been a God send to my daughter. His knowledge and mannerism is top notch...nothing compares to his compassion and his wisdom when it comes to limb length discepencies. I do not doubt that his best interest is that of the patient. He is so dedicated and concerned with the whole process of lengthening that he even gave me his cell number in case I needed to reach him...day or night. His nurse Rona did the same, this act in itself shows his dedication and concern for the patient. I cannot express my graditude enough to Dr A he is making my daughter's quality of life much better and I can never Thank him enough.

Dr. Abdelgawad is one of the most caring and attentive individuals, who takes his time and makes you feel very comfortable. Not only he is a great professional at what he does, he also acquires wonderful personal qualities. He is very humble and kind who radiates such positive energy as soon as he enters the room. I feel so blessed to have him as our surgeon whom I trusted without any doubts from start to finish. I am beyond grateful for all his hard work and cannot say enough thank you! I would give my recommendations to anyone without a second thought! Thank you, thank you and thank you!

I arrived in bad shape at the ER after a bad accident. I fractured my calcaneus and needed emergency surgery. I was very lucky that the amazing Dr Abdelgawad performed my surgery. He is very skilled and has excellent bedside manner. He takes the times you need to answer all your questions. Best part of all is that I’m able to get back on my feet pretty fast for such a serious injury. Forever grateful to Dr Abdelgawad for his outstanding work and to God for guiding us to the right doctor.
