You will not find a better neurosurgeon in Reno. Dr. Sekhon is incredibly knowledgeable and caring. He spent a long time going over my condition and options so the correct procedure could be chosen for my well-being. No one wants to have spinal surgery, but if you need it as I did, you can be assured you are in the best hands. It was so refreshing to see a specialist who truly shows an interest in his patients. Seeing the maps in his office which indicates all the lives he has touched with his expertise is a sight to see. Dr. Sekhon has a huge heart and is most definitely suited for his profession. His staff is also very attentive and caring. Anyone in need of a neurosurgeon needs to see Dr. Sekhon. You will not be sorry.

I had a lumbar spinal fusion, and it is now 5 months post-op. My pain level is virtually non-existent, I have gotten back to many of the activities I enjoyed before the pain set in, and I feel joy once again. From the moment I met Dr. Sekhon, I knew I found the perfect surgeon for me. He spent 45 minutes with my husband and I during my initial consult. He is extremely compassionate, thoughtful, and confident in how he can help his patients and their caregivers. Never did I feel a sense of arrogance that many surgeons have, and never did I feel unsure of his surgical abilities. I felt as if he truly cared about restoring my quality of life. Dr. Sekhon, Greg (PA), and Curt (PA) came to see me a total of 8 times in the two day hospital stay- amazing patient care and follow up. Greg came by and called when he said he would, and Curt has taken care of me since I returned home. He is a very genuine person who listens to me, and he responds quickly through the portal or a phone call. Allison, the scheduler, was extremely helpful in advising me of all the things needed before the surgery, and she was always quick to answer an email or phone call. Each visit to Dr. Sekhon's office was smooth, no long wait times, yet I never felt rushed by anyone. I didn't think it was possible to have such an amazing surgical experience, but I found it with Dr. Sekhon and his team.

Dr. Sekhon has performed two surgeries on me, both with complete success, an Anterior Cervical Decompression with fusion and a Semi Hemispherical laminecomy with micro discectomy. I was made aware of all treatment options and we only settled on surgery when all other avenues had been exhausted. Dr. Sekhon and his staff are the most friendly caring and helpful medical professionals, and office professionals I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I injured my back 20 years ago. About every 5 years I would seek out help, but no avail. I saw Dr Sekhon. He was able to perform a new procedure , and the only one in the area able to do so, specifically for my type of injury. I am still in recovery, but looking forward to the end result. Dr Sekhon and his PA's, Curt and Greg, were very warm and caring. I highly recommend this team.

Dr. Sekhon was the 3rd neurosurgeon I interviewed. His knowledge and personality (caring about his patients) made the choice easy. His staff is very friendly and professional. His offices are very clean. He gave me options the other doctors did not. I'm a fan for life!
