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
I would like to express
I would like to express a heartfelt THANK YOU to the entire staff at Nevada Neurosurgery. Walking in the door, I was terrified. Immediately, I was made to feel comfortable and cared for. I am now completely pain free. Thank you for giving me my life back.
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! 🙂
Dear Dr. Sekhon & Staff:
Dear Dr. Sekhon & Staff: I just want to say thank you for all you guys have done for me. Most of all, thank you for giving me back my life. You are so wonderful and I can’t thank you enough. I have been recommending you guys to everyone I talk to, and I will never forget what you’ve given to me.
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.
I found Dr.Sekhon, Lisa &
I found Dr.Sekhon, Lisa & staff to be very professional,courteous & knowledgeable. Dr. Sekhon provides you with all the information you would need in which to make your decision for your health care. Dr. Sekhon suggested conservative treatment for me first but this did not change my neck pain. Dr. Sekhon then went over all information regarding the next step which would be surgery I had a C3-C4, C4-C5, and C5-C6 anterior cervical decompression with fusion. The day after surgery I was without pain, had strength back in both my arms and legs and was released from the hospital on that day. Recovery at home has been quicker than anticipated and I have gone back to work after 4 weeks, (2 weeks of part-time and then full time) I will be starting physical therapy 2 to 3 times a week for 8 weeks. I would highly recommend Dr. Sekhon to anyone and everyone who would be looking for a skilled surgeon who listens to your every word and feels your quality of life is very important. Thank you Dr. Sekhon for my life back!
I thank Dr. Sekhon and
I thank Dr. Sekhon and Lisa very much for the help they have given me. I came in the 1st day barely walking and in pain. Since my surgery I hardly have any pain in my legs and my back has become better. Every visit is nice and very encouraging, and I always look forward to seeing you again. Thanks so much for your help and god bless.
Dr. Sekhon,My wife and I
My wife and I wanted to tell you how professional, caring, helpful, understanding and patience your office staff is. Your staff did what they said they would do and did it when they said they would. What a pleasant surprise, we have not had such an experience when dealing with a medical office before.
Special thank you to Amber and Carol for answering my questions when I called. Unfortunately for them I had a lot of questions. If they did not know the answer when I called they would find it and call me back in a timely manner.
Dr. Sekhon and Ms. Herz, thank you both for explaining my options in details and in a way I understood, because of this I feel confident that I made the right choice for my medical care.
Dr. Sekhon, I am now on the road to recovery thank you, I would recommend you office for medical care.
