I am writing to submit a negative report on a limb lengthening surgeon, Dr Khaled Emara, in Cairo, Egypt. I had the operation in 2009, and so far the whole ordeal has been a nightmare! The doctor is incompetent and sometimes downright rude in his manner towards me. I had so many difficulties right from the start, ranging from being given a broken filthy wheelchair, to an outright malfunction in my external fixation device. Everytime I had a problem as the ones just mentioned, I was made to feel as if I was being a nuisance to the doctor and his assistants. They would take a long time before responding to my requests for assistance. Please warn prospective patients against having their surgery with this doctor.
