Dr. Qureshi is not only a skilled surgeon, but a warm hearted and good communicator as well. He only performs surgery if absolutely necessary, and always has the patient's best interest in mind. He never seems rushed with you and answers all questions. My neck spinal fusion was very successful, am now pain free, and rapidly regaining use of my shoulder. I highly recommend him, his Assistant. Zack, and their entire staff.

1 review 5.0 star rating 1/6/2017 Dr. Qureshi did a lumbar fusion on my back in December 2015. His expertise as a surgeon and his on-going advice throughout my recovery has resulted in a significantly improved spine. Although recovery has been slow (as Dr. Qureshi suggested it would be), I am very pleased with my progress to date. I would highly recommend him to anyone with back issues.

Dr. Qureshi is great. I had spinal fusion surgery and the outcome was amazing. I can now walk miles without radiating pain down my legs. I went to him based on the glowing recommendation of my primary care physician and he lived up to expectations. He was always patient and answered my questions and I never felt dismissed or rushed. I would highly recommend him. The practice in general, Muir Orthopedics, is also really good. Great follow-up, attentive tech's, low wait time. I've talked to other folks who have had similarly good experiences there. In my opinion this is the best orthopedics place in the East Bay.

Dr. Qureshi performed a series of spinal surgeries on me in 2016 to help with significant scoliosis that got worse over time. The spinal fusion has left me pain free with more mobility than I could have dreamed of - truly life changing. His is a skilled surgeon that has a great bead side manner and a true interest in his patients and their families. I would recommend that you strongly consid him if you are in need of/contemplating back surgery.

I developed severe sciatica in Jan. 2016 and after proceeding through medication, PT, two epidural injections, x-rays and MRM imaging and diagnosis (bulged L4-L5 disc with long term disc degeneration) and waiting for 5 months in constant pain I consulted with Dr. Qureshi. He was very thorough in reviewing my case, and carefully walked me though options. He made sure that all my questions were addressed, recommending a TLIF for the best chance of resolution and to achieve my rehabilitation goals. Dr. Qureshi discussed pros/cons, compared to other possible methods, etc. After the initial consultation I checked websites, talked with numerous people that went through back surgery, and checked track records of other possible orthopedic surgeons. I decided to schedule the TLIF operation with Dr. Qureshi who has excellent recommendations and expertise in this technique. I believe that the preparation and surgery were the best I could get...Dr. Qureshi is very skilled and supportive. The surgery was a complete success to eliminate my sciatica. Recuperation has been fairly quick (I am now at 3.5 months post-op), and Dr. Qureshi continues to provide great recovery support. This was a tough decision to make, but the right one. I am sure my recovery will be very good and I will be back to my regular lifestyle with rock climbing, motorcycle sport riding, etc. Dr. Qureshi and John Muir Orthopedics were key. Thank you very much Dr. Qureshi you are awesome.

Dr. Qureshi performed fusion back surgery on me in 1/2016. He was the third surgeon I had contacted about my back problems. He is a very patience man who explained all the options I had before me - several times - and convinced me that his recommendation for fusion was the only feasible, long-lasting way to proceed. I had back trouble for about two years before I had my surgery in John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek. The outcome nearly 10 months later has been very satisfying. I am able to do nearly all of the physical things I had done most of my life. I am pleased and grateful I had the good fortune to have him as my surgeon.
