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.

First and foremost i would like to start with the staff at NV Neurosurgery. Everyone is simply amazing! From the time you are greeted by the ladies at the front desk at check in. To the time you check out. Every staff member is courteous and professional. As well as eager to be as helpful as possible with any question or concern you may have. Dr. Sekhon, Curt and Greg are fantastic. I can't express that enough. I've spent 30 years in construction industry. Specifically the concrete trade. As you can imagine, those years had taken a toll on my back. From disc degeneration to spinal stenosis. The nerve pain i had was excruciating. It was terribly painful to walk let, alone perform my daily duties at my job. Dr. Sekhon performed an L-2 to S-1 laminectomy on my back. And now 6 weeks later i am completely pain free and ready to return to work. I understand that my results may not be typical and they may be different for everyone else, but. I can say with complete certainty. Dr. Sekhon and his medical staff have given me a new lease on life. And i could not be more grateful.

My wife has had two surgeries, cervical relief on C5 to C7 and lumbar fusion with laminectomy on L3-L5. Dr. Sekhon explained options, showed immense knowledge, followed up effectively, was empathetic yet cautious because of the risks. In the operating theater, this surgeon is a magician and twice gave my wife's life back to her. His staff, like Dr. Greg and Tiffany, also are at the highest standard. Even the post-op braces and routines are detailed to maximize the careful work shown in the operating room. They do not come better than this doctor.

Dr. Sekhon cares about the patient and makes sure the patient understands all options. He does whatever he can so the patient can avoid surgery if it is absolutely not needed.

Dr. Sekhon and his entire staff could not have been better during a very stressful time for me and my family. Dr. Sekhon was very patient in explaining the reason for surgery and was great about answering all my questions. Most importantly, he was able to put me at ease on the morning of surgery with his confident and relaxed manner. The post-operative care was also first rate. Someone was available around the clock to answer questions or concerns that I had during the recovery period and when I had to leave a message for someone that wasn’t immediately available, I always got a same-day return call. I have since talked to people in the Reno area, both lay people and people within the medical profession, and have gotten very positive opinions of Dr. Sekhon from every one of them. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sekhon to friends and family.

Have seen Dr Sekhon twice prior to making surgery decisions. Once alone, once with my wife along. He took an hour or so to answer every possible question and he allayed concerns and instilled confidence that I was making the correct decision in having a 3 level acdf. As all of us become a bit older we end up seeing a few more doctors. I have never had greater confidence or trust in a Doctor than I have in Dr Sekhon. His humanity, knowledge and dedication to excellence inspire my unwavering belief that I have selected and entrusted the very best person as well as the most skilled Neurosurgeon to care for me. Having this level of confidence going into surgery is a rare gift.
