Review of Dr. Sharan

-

dr. sharan operated on me may 2 2019 for a cyst on discs l -2 and l -3 and a laminectomy I checked it to st. johns in Dobbs Ferry ny at 630a.m. and an hour later I was rolled in to operating prep. Around 830 after numbing from the waist down I was operated on . then to recovery and by 2 00 p. m. I was on my way home. recovery was amazingly fast and I was out and walking the next day and all the pain in my legs was completely gone . the hospital was great and dr. Sharan was terrific. I had a stenosis operation with full anesthesia. 6 years ago and the diifenece with this procedure is like night and day if you have stenosis `I continue to get better and better and can highly recommend both awake spinal surgery and dr. Sharan. . Robert Phillips

Review of Dr. Sharan

I was suffering from what I thought was a pulled muscle problem. I decide to find out what was going on and went to the doctor. After test and MRI, I was diagnosed with compressed disc disorder. I went thur the different treatments recommended by my doctor. With no relief. I decided to have the surgery. on March 14, 2019 Dr. Sharan and his surgical team preformed the spinal surgery. I had to stay overnight. The hospital was clean and comfortable the staff was awesome, friendly and there for me when needed. I went home the next day with all the instructions to get well. I am fully recovered and back to doing the things I enjoy doing which includes racketball. Thank you, job well done.

Dr. Sharan performed Awake Spinal Fusion on me in January of this year. I was able to go,home the day of the surgery and I have had no pain at all since that time. Dr. Sharan worked with an outstanding group of nurses, anesthesiologists, and other doctors to give me the best care I have ever received! Dr. Sharan was professional, methodical, personable, and always available to answer all of my questions before and after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Sharan as a surgeon!

I had a laminectomy and discectomy for a herniated disc at L5-S1 with Dr. Sharan eight days ago. He performed an “awake” spinal surgery. The surgery took about an hour but with the drugs I was given it felt like five minutes. I was able to go home same day. I only needed the prescribed pain meds for about four days. My recovery has been seamless and I’m ready to go back to work. I can’t recommend Dr. Sharan and the awake surgery enough. It really makes surgery seem like no big deal!

My mom had awake spinal surgery performed by Dr. Sharan about 6 weeks ago. After years of suffering and fear of having back surgery, we found Dr. Sharon, what a blessing. Dr. Sharan and his entire team at St. John's, Dobbsferry hospital were all fantastic. The entire process was very comfortable and she was able to go home the same day and recoup in her own bed an surroundings. Cheers to Dr. Sharon and his team!!

Review of Dr. Sharan

After years of back pain and one successful back surgery with Dr. Sharan, I was feeling immense pain on the other side of my back and immediately knew that I was going to need another surgery. At first I thought that I was going to need the same procedure that I had had two years earlier, but came to find out that one of my discs had completely deteriorated and I would need a replacement. Dr. Sharan recommended the Awake Spinal Fusion Surgery, stating that this would be the best course of acti

Dr.sharan preformed miracles on my back, I had awake spinal surgery. So far so good, I feel 95% better since I’m still in the healing process. But I’m extremely happy with my expierence & my overall results

My experience with Dr.Sharon was far less than expectation. I had my surgery done with him in year 2014 and since then my life has not being together. While in the hospital and after the surgery, he never did call or visit me in my recovery room. I am surprised about his improved rating. I will give him one star rating for his poor performance on me.

Review of Dr. Sharan

- in Yonkers , NY |

I recent had pain down from my back to my feet. Dr. Sharan was wonderful. Quit but right to the point. He did an infusion to my disk in my back and infused it. I had an eperderow so I didn’t feel my waist down and was put in a light sleep. After the operation the Doctor came to see me I had aches in my legs so the hospital I stayed in was Dobbs Ferry they were very nice.Dr. Sharan wanted me to stay ahead of the pain.The nurses were great. Dr. Sharan was a wonderful surgeon.
