OVERVIEW

\"No one wants to have surgery. Many people endure years of pain because they want to avoid surgery...or at least delay it as long as possible. I understand, but we have techniques today that can make such a dramatic difference-- reducing or eliminating pain, resorting flexibility and mobility. I know that the term \"back Surgery\" is scary, but it's my job to help my patients understand their options and help them.\"

"I was suffering from so much nerve pain and Dr Raabe and his team did a pretty extensive surgery on my back. The results are a blessing. Things are healing well"
  • January 11, 2024
"Dr. Raabe is a very kind compassionate person. He explains in great detail. After my latest surgery he came in the next morning. Pulled up a chair. And went in detail about my surgery. As he said I had a big surgery. I have had two follow ups so far. Both times X-rays were taken. And I was shown what was done. Dr. Raabe is a great communicator and explains pro’s and con’s. He asks if you have questions. And if you have questions after you leave, he invites you to call the office. His staff are great in getting back to you."

"Dr. Raabe did great job on my spine. There was minimum pain after about a week. :-) I know so many people who have had more back pain AFTER back surgery than they had before. I am fortunate to live in Tyler where Dr. Raabe practices."

"Dr. Raabe took so much time explaining the upcoming surgery and his surgical nurse was also very sweet and helpful. "
  • April 11, 2023
"Dr Raabe is an incredible surgeon and surgeon. I was injured many years ago in an accident but found no one who could believably explain how they could help. Many years of back injections, acupuncture and pain killers brought me to Dr Raabe by referral from a similarly injured friend. I was operated on in January 2023 and was released by Dr Raabe today. I am approaching pain free and still healing. I am ranging further than I have been able to walk in many years. He has my highest regard as a person, as a Doctor and as a surgeon. Great staff, great hospital, great surgeon. "
