I have referred patients to them

"Dr. Sameh Abolfotouh, who is always serving with skill and professionalism for the past decade up till now. He has demonstrated expertise in both the administrative and clinical aspects of Spine surgery. I am confident he has the skill set necessary to handle the challenges in his spine clinic in both Orthocure large urban medical center and Medcare orthopedics and spine hospital. Recently, the size of the outpatient in both facilities is increased according to his reputation and accuracy. Dr. Sameh played a significant role in the changes implemented in terms of the layout of the facilities and the patients flow. Even more importantly, Dr. Sameh showed exceptional skill in selecting the right staff and interns to serve his patient's needs of our community. His concern and expertise in this area has been most advantageous in UAE, USA and ARE. Especially that he's doing a specific kind of developed surgeries using the latest techniques and sometimes robots as well. Dr. Sameh helped develop the Post spine and scoliosis cases to give them the maximum treatment. Thanks to his efforts to treat patients well with the most developed techniques upon their return from all over the world. Dr. Sameh's competence, compassion and high ethical standards have succeeded in helping these patients return to their life among their families, neighborhoods and occupations fully able to successfully cope with their challenges and hopes! What a wonderful feeling to give a hand to a patient t let him back to his normal life and daily activities very soon!"
