My experience with Dr. Lali

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

I had back surgery on December 29, 2010. I won’t lie and say it was easy because it definitely 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, compassionate 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

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

On March 25th I did

On March 25th I did a compressed fracture of T9 from snowboarding off a 70ft jump during practice for a competition and was airlifted to the spinal trauma unit in Reno. Dr Lali Sekhon was the doctor who assessed me and did my surgery the day after arriving. I had just turned 18 and my parents were back in Australia, so it was very helpful when Dr Sekhon contacted my parents to fill them in on everything, and replied instantly to all their calls and texts.
Before surgery Dr Sekhon said he was confident my back would return to full strength. I ended up having 6 screws and 3 rods put in, I have done a lot of rehab and got the all clear after 6 months. All the specialists that I went to in Australia have been very impressed, so apart from breaking my back I was very lucky to be in that hospital with all the staff who helped me out and to have such a fantastic surgeon. He also helped us deal with the insurance company and their medical staff and made sure we had everything we needed to get home.
March 25th is almost here again a year later and on that day I will be on a plane to Italy to compete in the Jr World Championships for Slope style. So without the help of all the Staff and Dr Lali Sekhon at the spinal trauma unit I wouldn’t be back to where I am now and competing in what I love. It was a tough road getting back into snowboarding, and I have definitely tested out my new hard wear in my back with some massive crashes and even landing on my back off some jumps and it has been fine!
So thanks so much again to Dr Sekhon, Nevada Neurosurgery and everyone who helped me out at the hospital, couldn’t have done it without you! 🙂

Dr. Sekhon and Staff: I

Dr. Sekhon and Staff: I just wanted to say thank you, to you and your staff for such a pleasant experience. My hand has healed nicely, I have a cool scar, and have since returned to work with not problems. I’ve also recommended a few of my co-workers to you that have the same or similar problem, so look out for more FedEx employees. I’m even willing to let you do the other hand! ? Thanks again, LaTonya B.

Dr. Sekhon and his staff

Dr. Sekhon and his staff gave me my life back. It’s been almost 4 weeks since my surgery, and I have no more nerve pain. When all the other Doctors treated me like a dollar sign, they made me feel like I mattered. They took good care of me during surgery and my recovery. They really do care and I have been recommending them to everyone I know. To anyone out there who feels like they can’t go on anymore, please go see Dr. Sekhon and his staff, they will put the light back into the end of the tunnel and give you hope again. Thank you everyone, I can’t thank you enough.
