Dr Sehkon was very thorough with my examination.. He took his time and explained all details of my surgery to me and my husband. He went over the x-rays and showed the procedures that he would be doing in the surgery, answering all questions in clear fashion.. After the operation, he monitored my recovery checking on my progress during my hospital stay and during office visits. When Dr Sehkon was out of town on one occasion, his assistant, Lisa, was very efficient. They both took time to explain everything. The wonderful thing was that I had NO back pain after the surgery where before my pain was intolerable at times. I would recommend Dr Sehkon to anyone needing back surgery.
