11/07/13 5 5 5 5 After many years of acute pain, I was referred to Dr. Uppal regarding a spinal issue. Previous doctors said I was inoperable and I wanted 2nd opinion. Long story short, I had ant/post fusion, laminectomy, and discectomy, with cage and hardware. I was walking the next day, with only minor discomfort to incision sites. I was pain free in legs and back for the first time in 10 years. Dr. Uppal is an amazing, talented, and compassionate physician, who truly cares for his patients. I couldn't be happier with him, and the surgery he performed. I would highly recommend him to anyone with severe orthopedic issues. He is worth the wait, and will fix it correctly. Thank you Dr. Uppal. You are truly my hero.

27/04/12 3 2 5 5 Although he looks more like a car mechanic than a surgeon, he is one of the best back surgeons in the area.I had spinal fusion back in 2003, and am back to work. Also can play golf. I am not 100%, but who is after that type of surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Uppal and would go through it all over again if I needed to. There is a long wait in his office however, he is very busy

28/12/09 5 4 5 5 I have had 3 neck fusions in the last 8 years and one shoulder reconstruction and Dr. Uppal has done a fantastic job on all 4!!! I love using his outpatient surgery since I go home within 12 hours and can usually sit and watch TV less than 24 hrs after a major surgery. The scars are barely noticable and he truley cares about my well being - I highly recommend Dr Uppal as the best ortho surgeon in California.

THIS WAS DONE IN 1999, AND IT WAS DONE ON L3-S1. ALL THRU THESE ORDEALS HE STOOD BY ME, AND I JUST WANTED TO SAY HOW MUCH I APPRECIATED HIS BEDSIDE MANNER.  Respond
