Location Availability

I chose to specialize in spine surgery to improve my patients’ quality of life. The most rewarding aspect of my work is playing an integral part in their life changing and emotional experience, allowing them to return to the activities they enjoy.

Dr. Samad received his fellowship training in adult spinal surgery at the Johns Hopkins University, considered one of the top spine fellowships in the country. He is board eligible by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. As a spine surgeon who specializes in degenerative conditions of the spine, scoliosis and adult spinal reconstruction cases, Dr. Samad uses a conservative and individualized approach to ensure the best results for each patient using the most advanced surgical techniques

Before joining Florida Orthopaedic Institute, Dr. Samad was accepted into the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Following medical school, he completed his residency at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, New Jersey, where he earned the Medical Staff Award for Overall Excellence, and twice the F & J Award for Excellence in Scholarly Activity. Dr. Samad has co-authored multiple publications and book chapters. He has also delivered presentations at national meetings on degenerative conditions of the spine.

Dr. Samad enjoys spending time with his family, going to the beach, and traveling.

Testimonials

I had sciatica pain in my lower back and right leg. After surgery I had no pain and felt wonderful. Very little pain medications were needed and I was back to most of my normal activities within three weeks. Dr. Samad takes his time and relates to his patients’ needs. He is very informative. I highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of surgery.

I have been going to Florida Orthopaedic Institute for over ten years and have been happy with all of my doctors, especially Dr. Samad, with whom I am beyond delighted with. I have had several injuries from my employment which resulted in several joint replacements, relieving some pain. It wasn’t until Dr. Samad did my spinal surgery that I have felt this much pain relief. Dr. Samad is an amazing surgeon who uses advanced techniques and has a caring professionalism. Thank you again, Dr. Samad!

Everyone on staff at the Sun City office was very cordial and helpful. I went to see Dr. Samad twice and, although his diagnosis was much worse than I had anticipated, I very much appreciated that he told me the truth and did not sugar coat it. Knowing the truth helps a patient to make appropriate decisions about how to plan for surgery and how to handle their lives after. I’m also happy I did not have to travel too far to see a quality doctor!

RateMDs Review

I was very impressed with the level of care I received from Florida Orthopaedic Institute. It was my privilege to be treated by Dr. Adil A. Samad, who was thorough and proactive in diagnosing my condition. Upon diagnosis, a plan for treatment was immediate and within a month I had undergone surgery to decompress my spinal cord. The skill and professionalism of this physician cannot be overstated!! As an added bonus, Dr. Samad is very personable and possesses the rare ability to explain complex concepts in an understandable way. I strongly recommend Flordia Orthopaedic Institute!

It was great to have Dr. Samad as my doctor. He was very knowledgable and explained exactly what he was going to do. I’m feeling great!

I have been in pain for over 2 years with 2 bulging discs. I’ve done numerous things to try and help but nothing has worked. I was referred to a surgeon which I was extremely nervous about because I have never had surgery before and having 3 kids, 1 being special needs I had to do something because it wasn’t fair to my kids. I wasn’t able to be the mom I needed to be. I went in for a consultation with Dr. Samad. He came in friendly and took his time to answer any questions I had. Based on everything he went over with my MRI he recommended I have surgery. He told me to go home and talk it over with my husband and write down any questions and to make a follow up appointment. I came back with all of my questions and he answered all of them. I ended up scheduling surgery. It was the best thing for me and I am so glad I did it. Recovery wasn’t bad at all. I was up walking the next day. Dr. Samad was amazing. He even called my husband to check up on me the day after we left the hospital. He gave me my life back. I am not in anymore pain. I would recommend him to anyone who asks about an orthopaedic surgeon. He’s the best!

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Samad. He is my hero! Dr. Samad is professional, confident, understanding, kind, and an outstanding surgeon with a great bedside manner. I traveled from Lakeland to Brandon just to have Dr. Samad do my C-Spine surgery. I was really impressed with how well this surgery went. One thinks having surgery on your neck will make you really nervous but afterwards I was really surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated it to be. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Right after the surgery the sharp pains going down my arms were completely gone. I highly recommend Dr. Samad and if need be, I’ll be back! Also, I have to shine a star on Dr. Samad’s PA, Jackie, she is an angel, she is with you every step of the way!  You couldn’t ask for a better team than this!

Dr. Samad diagnosed the cause of my back pain and after a trial of PT without relief, we discussed my options. He recommended that I be seen by Pain Medicine since it was a less invasive treatment to see if that provided relief for my pain. Dr. Samad was so kind and went above and beyond to make me comfortable and answered all my questions. The Pain Medicine MD that Dr. Samad suggested I see was wonderful, providing pain relief with an ablation. I will certainly have Dr. Samad do my back surgery if this becomes necessary in the future. I would certainly recommend Dr. Samad to family and friends. Thanks Dr. Samad!

Dr. Samad is very easy to interface with–no superiority attitude. Excellent job on explaining what to expect and very understanding of my feeling and anxiousness to move on. Cautioned me on what not to do and what would be appropriate activities at this point in my recovery. I can not say enough for his personal and professional approach to me as a patient.

Dr. Samad recently performed an anterior cervical decompression and fusion on my C4-5 and C5-6 vertebrae. He and his staff are very friendly and personable. While I was in the hospital, Dr. Samad came in each morning and evening to talk with me and see how I was doing. I would recommend Dr. Samad to family and friends.

Healthgrades Review

This was my first experience with Dr. Samad. I have been extremely happy with the level of care. He is not only skilled in his field, but has taken the time to explain in detail, from start to finish, his plan for treatment.

Healthgrades Review

I would definitely recommend Dr. Samad to anyone. I was in so much pain and nervous, but he walked me step-by-step through the process all the way up to my surgery date. His assistant was awesome too, she worked with me thorough all of the scheduling conflicts as well as made sure my surgery took place. You do not get many doctors that care about your well-being like Dr. Samad.

Healthgrades Review

Dr. Samad is a fabulous doctor. He knows exactly what he is doing and treats his patients like his own family. He took my mother’s shooting pains away after one procedure. We are incredibly happy with the results. We are grateful for Dr. Samad and his team. I recommend him.

Gloria J.

I had surgery on my neck on December 21st and Dr. Samad eased the stress and anxiety I was feeling just by his bedside manners. Dr. Samad is a very caring and loving doctor. Not once was I worried about his knowledge of the procedure he was performing. I just had my three week checkup and all is good. Thank you for all that you do!

Healthgrades Review

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Samad. He is my hero! Dr. Samad is the whole package… professional, confident, understanding, kind, and an outstanding surgeon with a great bedside manner. I traveled from Lakeland to Brandon just to have Dr. Samad perform my c-spine surgery. I was impressed with how well this surgery went. When someone thinks to have surgery on your neck, it can be nerve racking. However, after surgery I was surprised it was not nearly as bad as I anticipated. In fact, it was one the best decisions I have ever made. Right after the surgery the sharp pains going down my arms were completely gone. I highly recommend Dr. Samad and if need be, I will be back! Also, I have to shine a star on Dr. Samad’s MA, Jackie, she is an angel. She is with you every step of the way! You could not ask for a better team than this!
