These doctors saved my life. If I could have had this procedure sooner....I was so afraid, needlessly of course. This was one of the best experiences, I've had with doctors in my life. Thank you all for all your help.

Dr. Sekhon and his staff are, in a word, balanced. I felt completely at ease when first meeting the doctor thanks to his soft-spoken manner. He answered my questions and addressed my concerns. Everyone in the office is highly knowledgeable and puts the care and comfort of the patients first. Without a doubt, Nevada Neurosurgery is the best in the state.

I wanted to thank you Dr. Sekhon, Lisa P.A. and staff! I can not say enough good things about the treatment I had gotten from you.
I was having pain in my neck, back, hand and arm like I had never felt in my life. I went to my regular Dr. he had me do an MRI and as soon as he looked at the results, he referred me to Dr. Sekhon. I was very nervous about having to go see a Neurosurgeon but he told me to relax that this Dr. is one of the best in the world and couldn't ask for a better one. Luckily he was here in Reno.
After going in for my visit the first time, I knew this was the Dr. that I would let operate on me if I was going to have it done. He spent the better part of an hour with me explaining what was happening in my neck and arm. Never once did he push the operation on me, he even suggested that I bring my wife in for a consultation so that she understood what was wrong with me and the plan for fixing it.
After that I was very nervous about having some one cut my neck open and put in 16 screws and 2 rods in my neck while removing part of the vertebra, but who better to do it then Dr. Sekhon.
After my operation I felt so much better the pain was gone instantly. After a short stay in the hospital I was sent home with instructions on what to do and the best way to heal. Each visit to Dr. Sekhon showed how much he and his staff cared about each patient.
After 2 months I was released to go back to work and 3 months I was released from any restrictions. I was so happy to go back to the gym and continue the rehab.
All I can say to Dr Sekhon and his staff is THANK YOU!!!!!!! You truly are the best.

My experience with Dr. Lali Sekhon and his associate Ms. Lisa Herz at Nevada Neurosurgery has been GREAT. My legs and back had hurt for 18 months. Several doctors had examined me and tried to relieve the pain but nothing had worked. My primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Manzi in the Renown Health group. Dr. Manzi tested the nerves in both legs and determined that I should see a surgeon, and recommended Dr. Sekhon. After reviewing my records and X-rays he determined surgery was the next step. Surgery was scheduled for March 31, 2011. Surgery was a breeze for me and I discontinued all pain medicine within two weeks. Since that time I continue to be pain free. Dr. Sekhon and staff have improved my quality of life.

I had back surgery on December 29, 2010. I won't lie and say it was easy because it definately was not. However, I am 100 per cent better. My posture has improved and I am pretty much pain free. Dr. Sekhon is a wonderful, compasionate and expert surgeon. He explained everything at great lengths, exhausted every other remedy and made my life so much better. Lisa also was so wonderful, she always related to what I was saying and was so helpful. I recommend Dr. Sekhon and his entire staff with my whole heart. They never failed to answer my questions and follow through with their commitments.

My name is Russell and I was referred to Dr. Lali Sekhon, M.D. because of a severe narrowing of my spinal canal due to spurs in my neck. My left hand was curling and I was loosing it's use. I was unable to lift my right foot and had been getting a sore similar to a boil every winter on the knuckle of little toe on my left foot for over 8 years.
When I first visited Nevada Neurosurgery, I already knew I had to have surgery because of the severity of the narrowing on my spine and had no idea if it would fix any of my problems. I did know that there was a very good chance of paralysis if I fell wrong and I did trip all the time.
Dr. Sekhon and his associate Lisa Hertz went over my reports and films with me, did their examination, explained and showed us what the procedures and risks there were, with and without the surgery and I felt comfortable in their skills and the confidence they projected. They did not let me down.
I had a Lami/Fusion from C-1 through T-1 (my spinal canal had narrowed down to 7mm) on November 10, 2010 at Renown Hospital in Reno, Nevada. As far as I amconcerned the surgery was more than successful. Dr. Sekhon and Lisa Herz preformed the surgery and I could not have had better.
There is no pain now and I only had to take pain medication for 13 days before I stopped and felt comfortable. I can now wear a shoe on my left foot again and can lift my right foot again to a certain degree. The Neurological staff at Renown Hospital are professionals and compassionate to their patients and I recommend all of them. My neck moves better than it did an I do not even notice having the surgery done.
Thank you again,
Russell Stoermer and family
