I had horrible sciatic pain for almost 6 months. I went to him for a second opinion. He took one look at my x-ray and said he needed to do arthroscopic surgery. When I went to another surgeon he told me that if I had listened to this doctor it would have made my pain worse. I did finally have a lamenectomy with another surgeon in Bethesda and it fixed the pain . I would highly recommend that you don't see this doctor!

Injured in 2002 and had 17 different procedures on my back, epidurals, cortisone, radial ablation, and three neurosurgeons and an orthopedic surgeon said there's nothing wrong. Suffered for 8 years. Finially found Dr. Yalamanchili and he found a vertebrae moved forward and the disk below crushed by the vertebrae below it. Surgery by him and absolutely NO pain after the surgery. Highly recommend him.

the secretary there has to be about 100yrs old and very rude.(more of that later)he seen me for 2 minutes and 3 seconds and did abs. nothing for me but referrd me to someone else. I was in terrible pain and he did nothing. I am checking with my ins. company o see how much he charged for this visit.if i need again i most certainly will go someplace else. the 100 yr old sec. could use a few lessons in manners towards people who have pain and problems moving

6 months after fusion c5-c7 I was still in pain. I saw the Dr. two times about the pain. The Dr. didn't deem it necessary that I should have another xray. My appointments never lasted more than 2 minutes. It was obvious he didn't have time for me nor did he care. I spend the next 18 months on narcotics. I was living a very limited lifestyle. I tried PT, acupuncture and massage. I also tried Pain Management. I had numerous facet blocks and epidural. Very painful, no results. I have spend small fortune on treatments. My insurance co. denied an RFA twice. They said the block did not meet their criteria. I gave up with pain management. My next call was to a Spine Center in Baltimore. After surgery in the back of the neck I am finally on my back to recovery. I would never recommend this Dr. or his staff. It's obvious they didn't like their jobs.

I had a partial discectomy in sept 2006, 3wks after surgery I started having a lot of back pain....I lost my insurance due to the fact that I could not go back to work, he would not even talk to me....for all these yrs I have suffered so much pain. I am now going to a real neurosurgeon to try to fix his mess....I would never recommend this Dr. terrible bedside manners and the staff are rude

I had went to chiropractors, had ultrasounds, and took therapy and nothing helped. My pain was so agonizing that I really didn't care if I lived or died. I was referred to Dr. Yalamanchili by some staff members at the Air Guard. He did an MRI which showed that I had a ruptured disc. I agreed to have surgery. It was somewhat painful afterwards because I had a laminectomy. Once I recovered, I felt like a new person!! He had changed my life! I will always be grateful for what he did.
