I will always be grateful to Dr. Sekhon for his excellent care. Rather than rushing to surgery, he took the time to make sure all of the pieces of my diagnosis fit. As it turned out, my problem could not be corrected with surgery. He was able to explain difficult neuroanatomic concepts clearly. Dr. Sekhon was thoughtful, respectful and kind and helped me to deal with and accept a very difficult diagnosis.
I highly recommend Dr Sekhon and feel blessed to have had him on my team.

It has been a little over a year (Sept. 2011) since I had my 3-level cervical fusion with Dr. Sekhon. I could not be happier with the results. Both he, Lisa, and the rest of the staff were professional and caring. Everything was described to me ahead of time so that when I did have the surgery, I was well aware of all that would occur. The aftercare was excellent. I would recommend Dr. Sekhon to anyone who has a spinal stenosis. I was in pain for over 11 years with numbness in my arms; I now live a very full life thanks to Dr. Sekhon and hist staff.

I had disc replacement surgery on 8-8-2012. C-4-C-7. To say the least I was terrified of becoming paralyzed from the neck down. Dr. Sekhon did a great job and I am healing well. Now I feel bad for being such a wussy. lol
Apparently this type of surgery is his forte. Thanks Doc.

I went to see Dr. Sekhon for terrible pain I had from a pinched nerve. The MRI showed exactly what was happening and Dr. Sekhon explained what the procedure would be to release the nerve. I am now a month and one week out of surgery; I still have a little twinge of nerve pain and some healing and strengthening to do, but the horrible nerve pain is gone. I feel like I have my life back. Thank you Dr. Sekhon, Lisa Herz and all of the staff.

I would recommend Dr. Lali Sekhon for spinal surgery. His educational background, years of experience, ongoing research, and national recognition as a leading expert on cervical spine disorders was what inspired me to select him as my neurosurgeon. Dr. Sekhon did a good job explaining the surgical procedure, including the risks. I felt that I was in good hands and in mid-May I underwent the procedure. It was successful, the recouperation at home doable with some help, and pain manageable with Tylenol and other pain meds. I feel confident that I made the right choice and am looking forward to starting physical therapy next week. Thanks to Lisa also as she was very helpful and encouraging.

After days and days of excruciating pain it was such a blessing to be pain free.following the surgery. Although there were a few rough days, I am so glad I had the surgery. I look forward to working on the physical therapy, and getting my back better than it was before. One thing I particularly appreciated about Dr. Sekhon was his careful and detailed explanation of my health situation and what he proposed to do to correct it. I had every confidence he would do as promised... and he did.

Dr. Sekhon and staff were most courteous and managed to dispell many of the doubts I had about undertaking spinal surgery. I was advised by so many people not to undergo this type of surgery. However, because of serious pain in my legs, hips and back, I elected to go ahead. There was also the threat of impending cauda
equina which was a further consideration.
Dr. Sekhon is a superb surgeon and he certainly proved that when he operated on my spine. I was walking without a cane or walker within a month of being released. In fact, I didn't need the walker at all.
I feel like a new person with very little residual pain (in my legs) and I am so glad I decided to go ahead with the surgery.
I recommend Dr. Sekhon for those who want the very best.

Thanks to Dr. Sekhon, I feel awesome!
I was told on a plane flight back to Vegas by another patient - on my way back from Dr. Sekhon's opinion - to go with anything he says and I will say the same thing to anyone else who is up in the air.
I didn't even realize how much pain I was in. I have not felt as good as I do in 8 years.... Mentally and physically.
Thank you, Dr.Sekhon and his staff!!!!!

Both Dr. Sekhon and Lisa Herz are very easy to talk to. They are both very good at explaining what is wrong, how they intend to fix it and any long term after-effects. Thanks to all the folks at Nevada Neurosurgery for a very helpful hand at a painful and scary time in my life.

It's been one year since i had surgery on my neck....things are wonderful. I had 2 vertebrae replaced and 3 disk fused. It took awhile for my body to figure out what happened. The muscles in my shoulder area had been supporting my neck for so long they were not sure what their job was now. Everything now is wonderful, I can garden all day and not pay for it at night. Thanks so much Dr. Sehkon for your wonderful care....and Lisa for your wonderful energy....This is the place to be if you need help with spine problems. P.S. also had carpal tunnel operation on right hand in November....my hand is now perfect, can knit with the best of them
