Due to a serious car accident my right leg and foot were shattered and I was referred to Dr. Raissi for reconstructive surgeries. I was very impressed not only with his technical expertise but also the way he treated me as a patient. He was very approachable and he made sure I understood all aspects of the surgeries and treatment. There was some doubt as to whether I would be able to keep my leg and ankle but because of Dr. Raissi and his staff I am now walking without any assistance. I will never run a marathon but am extremely grateful that I can walk and am not confined to a wheelchair. Even after the surgery "Team Raissi" as they call themselves were very helpful and made sure there were no complications. Thank you very much for putting me back together again. Sincerely, Bob K

I am eternally grateful to Dr. Raissi and the staff at Desert Orthopaedic. I came to Dr. Raissi in 2005 to continue my "treatment plan" from a podiatrist in California. I walked in on crutches, having been on them for 1-1/2 years from a healing foot surgery. I was evaluated by Dr. Raissi & his team. It was found that I required corrective surgery in order to walk again without any aide of crutches. My surgery was scheduled shortly thereafter with guidance and aide of Dr. Raissi's team. During my healing and recovery process, the support and attention I received from all of the staff at Desert Othopaedic amazed me. They all were so attentive and very supportive. I was to be married 7 months after my surgery and my goal was to walk down the aisle with no crutches; and through Dr. Raissi, I was able to accomplish this goal. My surgery was in February 2006 and my wedding was 6 months later in August of 2006. I have much admiration for Dr. Raissi and his knowledge and expertise in his field and truly value and trust his opinion. Dr. Raissi and his staff truly impacted my life. I am walking today, crutch-free, and will always remember what he has done for me. Christina D., 2010

To whom it may concern: Dr. Raissi operated on my ankle 11/7/11 and i am so grateful he was my Dr. I feel he is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the U.S.A and Las Vegas is very lucky to have him in their city.  He is a wonderful surgeon and i was so amazed that he has so much compassion for his patients.It seems rare anymore to find a Dr. that will spend time with you let alone someone who you feel really cares. This seems to be missing any more in this day and age in the medical field. I have been truly blessed that he did my surgery, and i thank my lucky stars for guiding me to him for my care.  Sincerely, Isis W.  Dr.Raissi, thank you, thank you so much for what you did for me. A compliment to your parents, they raised a fine young man who grew up to be a great Dr.

I was in a car accident Dec.2010 was in hospitals 4mts & told I would never walk again,every bone in my foot was crushed my anklle & heel were gone also. I saw 2 surgeons 1st look they said no way amputate it, then I was referred to Dr. Raissi by another doctor who used him himself. That was the first hope I had, we tried to save my foot with surgery but I have staphe & it was a long shot but he never gave up on me, in the end after 1 1/2 yrs we decided to amputate below knee its the best thing ever, I had the time to prepare for the loss, Dr. Raissi was truthful about my chances without being cruel, he is the best Dr. with the best staff Ive ever gone to and truely feel he saved my life, I walk, run, dance, play with my grandkids, even drive fine & NO pain. I would refer anyone to this man he and his staff Alayah & L.J. gave me the personal care I needed with such a hard decision, the best care possible with surgery, bedside manner, & the follow up has been incredable I call & get a call back, I need to see the Dr. I see the Dr. I can t say enough about the care and quaility of surgery I received and still do from Dr.Raissi. You have any Othro problems this is the man to go to, so Dr. Raissi, Alayah & L.J. I thank you all and owe you my life you gave mine back to me, actually its a better life than before this whole experience, I m a stronger woman and NO PAIN. Thank you, With much graditude, Bobbie L.

Dr. Raissi, I recently saw you for a second opinion regarding a foot surgery that was recommended by Barrett Foot. You suggested that, based on your opinion, you would not have surgery. I wanted to drop you this note to thank you for your honesty and professionalism! Finally- an honest doctor in Las Vegas. You will be my Dr. of choice for any future foot problems.  Thank You Very Much, Jana N.

I first saw Dr. Raissi in 2009 for pains in the joint of the large toe on my right foot. He explained all the options and I decided to follow his advice and fuse the toe to the foot, as the joint had disintegrated and the cartridge was nonexistent. I was scared to have any surgery so I put it off for two years. In April 2011 I saw Dr. Raissi and his staff again as the pain was too much, they assured me they would do everything they could to take care of me and they did just that. I had the surgery on April 24, 2011 and eight weeks later I am pain free, back at the gym and work. I am grateful to the Dr. Raissi and his kind staff for taking such great care of me, words can't express my gratitude. Dr. Raissi and his staff are the best if you need foot work done listen to them they are awesome! Thank You Again, Chad O.
