I wanted to wait a full year before my testimonial because my two previous surgeries failed within a years period. My previous surgeries were performed by a popular non evasive surgeon in RENO NV. He put in a ILIF that he is big on come to find out no one uses those anymore. Dr Sekhon looked at my MRI and could tell exactly where this Doctor had been hacking. Dr. Sekhon advised me what I needed and what my limitations would be and what I could and couldn't do and also my options. There was no pressure and the decision was totally up to me. I elected to go with the surgery and am I ever glad I did. After surgery i was pain free and have remained pain free. In fact I have not felt this good in many years and i have to constantly remind myself not to do certain things because there is no pain to remind me. He removed the ILIF and performed a four level fusion. He came to my room the next day to see how I was doing with his assistant. I never saw the previous surgeon even after four office visits. His office continued to check up on me while in the hospital. And when it came time to check out he made sure i was released promptly by calling the nurses, unheard of with my experiences. My only regret is that I didn't see him first. I am very grateful and fortunate that he was in my area to perform the surgery. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Very fortunate to have a superb surgeon operate on me for a subdural hematoma. I was obviously in the hands of a skilled team and continue to have a successful recovery.
My sincere thanks to Dr. Sekhon, Greg Graves and Curt Erickson for a job well done.

Craniotomy performed by Dr. Sekhon on 1/7/17, Reno NV
Two months ago, I had lower back fusion surgery with six screws and bolts, etc for chronic back pain. The morning after a late surgery the day before I was walking the halls of the hospital with the aid of a walker. I have had NO more back pain (only surgery healing pain for a while). Dr Sekhon is a jewel. My husband and I have never met a more professional, competent physician. He and his PA and office staff are all extremely competent, respectful and thorough. If you've never received a followup packet from a doctor after your FIRST visit, as had been our experience, you WILL receive one from Dr Sekhon soon after your first visit to him. Amazing! I highly recommend him and will go back to him when/if I need further neurosurgery.

73 year old woman with chronic back pain, Reno, NV
I had a laminectomy and a synovial cyst removed in May, 2016. Dr. Sekhon was very knowledgeable and professional and diagnosed the problem promptly. I was in a lot of pain and he got me into surgery without waiting, the surgery went well, I stayed overnight in the hospital and went home the next day. I was able to communicate with his assistant, Greg, whenever I had any questions which was comforting. After a few months I was completely out of pain and have been fine since. I was really impressed with Dr. Sekhon's training at the Mayo Clinic, his career teaching neurosurgery, and referrals from friends. I would recommend Dr. Sekhon to anyone who is concerned about having a successful surgery.

Severe neck issues. Fused C3 to T1. Was very fortunate to see Dr. Sekhon. If you canvas the medical community, Dr. Sekhon is highly a recommended neurosurgeon. The operation was very successful and my recovery ahead of schedule. Can't say enough about Dr. Sekhon. Also, can't say enough about his staff. They were very attentive to my needs and extremely pleasant to deal with.

From the moment I was referred to Dr.Sekhon, he and his office staff were exceptional. Allison, his scheduler, responded quickly by phone and email. Dr.Sekhon spent 45 minutes with my husband and I at our initial consultation, and his calm demeanor put me at ease immediately. He erased my fears and showed great confidence in his ability to help me ( confidence is different than arrogance!). I decided to schedule the spinal fusion after years of failed attempts at other therapies. His two PAs are just phenomenal. Curt responds within just a few hours of calls or emails. My visits with him have been thorough. He even came to see me in the hospital, even though he wasn't in my surgery. Greg, the PA who was in my surgery, was extremely attentive to my needs. He came to see my 5 times in my two day hospital stay. He called when he said he would call me after I went home. Dr. Sekhon and his team visited me over 8 times in two days following my surgery- that's the ultimate in patient care! I had zero complications, so I would imagine that if I did, they would have come more frequently. I am now 11 weeks post-op, and I could not be more pleased with the results of Dr. Sekhon's surgery. I went back to work at 9 weeks (I'm a teacher), and it was perfect timing. I trusted Dr. Sekhon from the moment I met him. I saw another spinal practice before Dr. Sekhon, and I am so glad I decided on Dr. Sekhon. He will be honest with you, give you all your options, help you think about potential issues in the future with each option, and allow you time and space to make your decision. Dr. Sekhon is very conservative in his approach. I felt he, and his staff, truly cared about me and the surgical outcomes. You owe it to yourself to go to the best neurosurgeon in Reno.

I have now had my second spinal fusion with Dr. Sekhon. The first time, I waited too long and was in so much pain I couldn't even sleep. Fusion of the L4-5 removed the pain instantly. I was amazed at how energized I felt and that I could return to all previous activities. Ten years passed, and I've now had the L3-4 fused. The healing process seems easier than before; perhaps due to improved hardware. Dr. Sekhon is skillful, knowledgeable and considerate. He listens to concerns and answers all questions. I felt safe and secure knowing my surgery would turn out well. Dr. Sekhon will guide his patients through the best course of action; I highly recommend him.

I had been having sever pain from a bulge in my L5S1 for years and was given pain management by a previous doctor the entire time without pushing the severity of my condition I had to reach out for myself. Upon research in the healthcare community which I work I heard nothing but great outcomes and wonderful comments about Dr. Sehkon. His office has been very efficient and the staff is all very nice. I contacted his office the middle of November and was able to get an appointment within a month. I met the doctor and his PA on December 19th and they were straight to the point and answered all questions which I appreciated very much. I'm not one for fluff, neither are they. They know what they are doing and take conservative routes first if they can, all approached with compassion. I had a microdiskectomy scheduled for December 23rd after letting them know I was hoping to get to in before the end of the year for my insurance deductibles. They were completely understanding. I am 3 weeks out from surgery and feel amazing. I couldn't be happier with a small scar and wonderful follow up. I recommend this office and this doctor for and back and spine problems to everyone!

I was already scheduled for cervical surgery before I found Dr. Sekhon. Due to the region of surgery, I contacted several doctor friends, PT facilities, and personal research on orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons in Northern California. Dr. Sekhon's name came up several times. After reading several independent articles on Dr. Sekhon, I made an appointment to see (interview) him. He was extremely professional, demonstrated a sincere interest in my situation, was honest about my expectations of success AND what might not work. Additionally, his staff was responsive. I ended up cancelling my surgery with another doctor and went with Dr. Sekhon.
Dr. Sekhon was able to heal my situation and the facility, Northern Nevada Medical Center were fantastic.
I have had over 15 surgeries in my life so I feel somewhat "experienced" with doctors. I would rank Dr. Sekhon as one of the best I have experienced. I would highly recommend speaking with Dr. Sekhon and assess him and his staff for yourself.
