      Dr. Khanna spent four minutes with me. His PA (very condescending) spent about 10 minutes staring and typing at the computer, asking questions that I was already mid-sentence answering. His PA incorrectly wrote down history and symptoms. In total, waited over an hour and half to be seen by PA and Dr. Khanna. No discussion of what prompted new set of symptoms or potential courses of therapy. Very frustrating.

      I am so thankful for Dr. Khanna and his staff for the wonderful care they gave me. Dr. Khanna and his assistant John explained everything clearly before surgery and were very thorough in follow-up visit. The office called the day I came home to check on me. Both Dr. Khanna and John were helpful, knowledgeable and very kind. I felt safe in their care and the surgery was a great success. The office staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Khanna to anyone needing his skill

      As a patient who has had a number of surgeries for a number of conditions in the last few years, i am extremely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Khanna. I found every phase in the process to be very well handled and professional by he and his staff. Not only was the office part informative and helpful, but the hospital experience itself one of the best I've personally experienced. A special shoutout should also be given to how his staff met all of my family's needs during our experience.

      Dr. Khanna was my 4th opinion on whether or not to get my 3rd surgery. 3outta4 doctors(including Dr.Khanna) said surgery. I went with Dr. Khanna because of his demeanor and the way he explained things. I am now 4mos post op from a 7lvl laminectomy with fusion. I am almost pain free. I would recommend him, but if you also look at his pedigree (went to John's Hopkins and now works with them) you can see he is a sharp, knowledgeable man who really cares about his patients. Thank u Dr. Khanna

      I am extremely grateful that Doctor Khanna performed my minimally invasive lumbar fusion this past January. The competency of Dr. Khanna and his team was inspiring, and I could not have been luckier that he was the physician that performed the surgery. The fact that I am walking and standing with much less pain has been a long awaited miracle. I know that he has probably perform many surgeries in a given year, but I want to let him know that I am forever grateful. With my deepest regards, MBS

      I was seeking for second opinion for my neck/shoulder pain. I found Dr. Khanna via googling. He took his time to study my issues and explained to me what needed to be done. He clearly told me the risk and benefits of the procedure. My operation went smoothly. He has helped me to feel better. My pain before the surgery was 70-80% gone. He is an amazing surgeon.

      I had Spine Surgery with wonderful results. Going from my pain being at 10, to 0 after surgery.I definitely recommend Dr Khanna to anyone who has spine problems of any type.
      in Bethesda, MD |
      I have had two lower back surgeries with Dr. Khanna. In both cases he provided clear explanations of the problem and procedures and sought to be as minimally invasive as was warranted. I always felt in good hands. My back feels better than it has in years.

      Performed a Lumbar fusion September 2015. Very compassionate about his patients and his work. Extremely great followup since fusion. Pays attention to detail.

      Dr. Khanna saved my life! After two previous surgeries and a staff infection, my back collapsed (broke). Thank God I was referred to Dr. Khanna from Johns Hopkins because he was able to rebuild my back. In addition to his unbelievable surgical skills, Dr. Khanna also is tremendously kind and uncommonly good at communicating with patient and family. Dr. Khanna understands the importance of the mind/body connection which so many other surgeons do not. I owe Dr. Khanna my life!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
