Dr. Sandeep Kunwar's Ratings
I went to Dr. Kunwar after 3 failed pituitary surgeries at my local hospital, OHSU in Portland, Oregon. By the time I got to Dr. Kunwar, my tumor was still quite large and had invaded areas difficult to operate in. Though I had been through it all before, Dr. Kunwar took the time to explain what he saw in the scans and how he would operate. His transphenoidal surgery had the fastest recovery time and longest lasting effect of all my surgeries. I was in the hospital only one night. After 9 years, I am showing some small tumor growth again, but that is so much better than what I had had before. My recommendation for anyone with a pituitary tumor is to go to one of the very few nationally-ranked pituitary centers for treatment. Dr. Kunwar at UCSF is certainly one of the best.
Dr. Sandeep Kunwar is a brilliant surgeon who truly devotes his life to helping people like me. Diagnosed with a pituitary tumor, my doctors just treated me with pills. I never felt right and surgery was never discussed as an option for me. I did some research on my own and kept finding Dr. Kunwar's name; reading about him and his research. He's passionate about what he does and is an expert is addressing issues like mine. He performed neurosurgery on me in 2005 and I'm back to myself again. Textbook surgery, textbook recovery....all thanks to Dr. Kunwary. He's wonderful, straightforward, and is willing to educate you and take the time to help you make the right decisions for yourself.
This is the BEST neurosurgeon, practicing in a facility that has the most modern up to date tools and supportive staff. All allow surgery to be performed with lesser risks. He is brilliant and saved my son's life from a hemorrhagic cystic pituitary adenoma. I would highly recommend this doctor if you need neurosurgery. He is also very personable and yet serious and steady, all the qualities you'd want from someone who is about to perform surgery on your brain! I can't say enough about Dr. Kunwar. I researched several options for my son, and as an advanced nurse practitioner myself, I think my studies paid off when we decided to go with him and UCSF. Another important issue is to consider the number of surgeries of that type your doctor has performed and the staff's experience. Outcomes are closely linked to this vital issue. Pick someone and a place that does A LOT of that type of surgery and you will have a statistically better chance for a good outcome.
