Dr. Sekhon and his staff are amazing

Dr. Sekhon and his staff are amazing. I had a s-4 s-5 laminectomy and discectomy. Who knew one of the United States top spine surgeons practiced in Reno? After spending almost a month in agony after re-injuring my back I’m now pain-free. Doctor Sekhon was very professional and showing me on my MRI what exactly my problem was and explaining how it could be fixed very simply. Even a non-professional like myself could understand what was going on on the MRI. After all this he asked if I had any questions I asked him how many times he’d done this surgery his answer was about 5000! I couldn’t think of any good questions after that… Have to comment about his anesthesiologist too on the day of surgery he came by to see me in pre-op. He clearly saw I was a little nervous about getting back surgery I mean who wouldn’t be? He said he would give me something to relax me he put something in my IV and the next thing I know I was waking up in post-op with the nurse saying it was all over! That’s how it should be done so you don’t have time to worry about stuff! Well done doc. Post-op instructions and visits were very well planned and clear instructions. If you have spine issues this is where you want to be. I went back to the VA after surgery and spoke to the patient advocate about my good experience and recommended that they send more people to Dr Sekhon.

This very knowledgeable Doctor and his team are truly awesome

This very knowledgeable Doctor and his team are truly awesome; others’ comments below concerning the same are highly accurate. About 5 years ago had two collapsed disks in my neck (old series of injuries) aggravated by a last-straw fall. Left arm and shoulder pain were untouchable by heavy meds or physical therapy. Lali believes in being informative, very conservative and non-invasive; surgery being only as a last resort. In my case, there was not an option and needed it done as soon as scheduling permitted. 2nd day after the surgery my wife felt the need to yell at me because I was not following post-op orders; I felt no pain. 5+ years in and still doing great. The metal plate/screws in my neck do not even set off the TSA metal scanners. Bonus round 🙂 If I ever have need to be back in a doctors’ and his terrific teams’ care for anything having to do with nero/spine, my big hope is that Lali is still here in Reno, and continuing to practice. To Lali: Thank you for deciding to take up medicine. Reno is very lucky to have you!

Thank you for this opportunity

Thank you for this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the entire staff at Nevada Neurosurgery.
The prospect of undergoing spinal surgery was terrifying for me, but rapidly-progressing and increasingly-incapacitating neuropathy made this decision necessary.
Dr. Sekhon’s confident, reassuring, and patient explanations allayed my fears. Curt Erickson, PA-C, thoroughly, patiently (and sometimes repeatedly), answered all of my many followup questions. And the front and back offices “ran with the precision and efficiency of a fine Swiss watch”.
I am most thankful that I entrusted this important decision to Dr. Sekhon and the entire staff at Nevada Neurosurgery.

My appointment with Dr. Sekhon

My appointment with Dr. Sekhon and his staff was a refreshing, very positive experience from all aspects in today’s overly regulated and complex medical system. From the initial appointment arrangements with his office staff to the actual visit itself with his medical support personnel to the session with the doctor himself, all was conducted with a very high degree of professionalism. Should the time come for further procedures, up to and including surgery, I would no hesitation to continue with Dr. Sekhon.

Dr. Sekhon and the entire

Dr. Sekhon and the entire staff are the best, all you could hope for in patient
concern and care, in how thorough they are in addressing your needs and questions,
and in making sure all aspects of your care are improved. I feel extremely lucky I
was referred to Dr. Sekhon who performed my very difficult laminectomy with
complete success. I would recommend him and the staff to anyone needing his skills.

I would have never thought,

I would have never thought, due to lack of insurance, to go see a surgeon to help me with the severe back pain I suffered from for more than 10 years!! After ending up in the hospital and the ER not being able to control the pain, Dr. Sekhon (who was not on call at the time) did my surgery NO QUESTIONS ASKED!! He is also being VERY GRACIOUS in working with me on making payments.

He and his staff are always very caring and treat me with the utmost respect. I would recommend Nevada Neurosurgery to ANYONE!!!

Thank you for taking away the pain I have suffered from for such a long time.

Totally a miracle!

Totally a miracle! People who have had similar back surgeries think I probably didn’t have “real” back surgery because my recovery was so successful. I was free of the original pain right from the start. I only had to recover from the surgical pain. I’m so glad I found Dr. Sekhon. I have to force myself to take it easy because I feel so “normal” I had L2 through L5 laminectomies and bilateral foraminotomies and results are amazing.

I was referred to Dr.

I was referred to Dr. Sekhon by another pain specialist in town. My pain specialist had tried all of the prescribed conservative treatments and none of them had any effect on the debilitating pain I was suffering. My symptoms progressed amazingly fast. I went from having some trouble walking to not being able to walk, sit or stand in a matter of about 3 weeks. For all intents and purposes I was crippled. Dr. Sekhon saw immediately that I was a candidate for surgery. The hope he gave me was the first hope I had experienced in a long time. When I was finished with my surgery I was able to walk from the gurney to the hospital bed without any pain at all. I suffered some complications, one of which required a second surgery (I think I did something stupid during my recovery) and one of which required bed rest for a week or so. That, however, was just the beginning. I needed frequent consultations about my problems with the physician’s assistant (Dr. Erickson) and the promptness of his responses and the care he demonstrated were unbelievable. I rarely had to wait more than 5 minutes for a response from Dr. Erickson when I called and when I spoke to him I felt that he really cared about me and my troubles. Dr. Sekhon is a great surgeon, but that is just part of the story. His people clearly pride themselves itself on providing top notch post-op care to their patients, even if the care is needed in the evening or the weekend. I cannot say enough positive things about my experiences with Dr. Sekhon and Nevada Neurosurgery. If you are experiencing leg or back pain do not hesitate to schedule and appointment with this office.
