Dr. Sekhon is a godsend! I have been struggling with lower back pain for years and have tried everything from chiropractic, to massage, to acupuncture, to injection therapy. I've been diagnosed with bulging discs in L4-L5 & L5-S1 and was told that the pain was due to the discs being inflamed and degenerated... and that the ONLY course of action was to fuse L5-S1. I decided on my own to start decompression therapy... and that did help the bulging discs, but the pain would not go away and felt like it was just getting worse. The diagnosis from my previous doctor was right and wrong... the pain is in the facet joints of L4-L5, not the discs. Thank you, Dr. Sekhon for reading my MRI and X-Rays and finding the real cause of my pain. The joint is arthritic and the nerves are inflamed. One cortisone shot later in each side and a prescription for a nerve medication and I'm feeling like a million bucks! I'm exercising again, walking my dog to the point of her being exhausted instead of me crying in pain, and I'm just loving life again. The weekend after the shot, I did a 5 mile hike... something I haven't been able to do in years. I've been telling everyone I know about Dr. Sekhon and how he's all about fixing the problem instead of doing surgery when it's not necessary like some practices. I could kiss him! He saved me from what would have been a failed and unnecessary fusion.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

My back surgery went extremly well. After 8 weeks i am almost completely pain free. i have very little numbness in the bottom of my left foot which i expect to go away also. I cant say enough about the staff and Dr. Sekhon. Curtis Erickson was great also from the start to my last appointment.
I would recommend them very highly.

Dr. Sekhon and his associates were fantastic...did lower back fusion, etc. They were very hands on and attentive, did what they said they would do and the followup has been superior. I would recommend them to anyone in need of consultation and/or surgery.

Dr Sekhon is one of the finest surgeons in the West. He is very conservative and patient oriented. His training in Australia, Canada and the United States has been outstanding. I saw him 10 years ago for a 4 level spinal fusion which has bee extremely successful and currently have another back problem which he advised waiting as surgery was not necessary at this time. He is the only one I recommend to others.

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.

In September of 2016 Dr. Sekhon did an Anterior Cervical Decompression with Fusion at C5-C7. Then in April of 2017 Dr. Sekhon also did a Semi Hemispherical Laminectomy with Microdiscectomy at L5-S1. While I am still healing, I can say that there was immediate relief of pain with both surgeries. The post-op pain was fairly minimal all things considered, easily manageable with the prescribed medication. While not important to me personally, the scarring from the neck surgery is barely noticeable and I suspect after some time will become even less so. It is too soon to tell how the back incision will heal, but I do have a tattoo that had to be cut in order to perform the surgery and Dr. Sekhon definitely took the time to line everything back up to make it look as inconspicuous as possible. Curt Erikson PA-C, one of Dr. Sekhon's assistants, is a great help, and always takes the time to cover any additional concerns or questions that you may have. Greg Graves PA is also very quick to respond. The entire office staff, from scheduling to admission and billing are always extremely polite, professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Sierra Neurosurgery Group and Dr. Sekhon. I would also like to thank Allison, Tiffany, Jennifer and all the rest of the office staff that I may and probably have forgotten. I believe that the dedication, training and commitment to excellence shine bright with this team and I will always remember how great my experience with them has been. There is no doubt that if I have another injury requiring surgery, I will be praying it is one Dr. Sekhon and his team can do.
