Biography

Dr. Ashish Sahai is a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in spinal surgery. Drawing on his biomedical engineering training as well as his medical experience from Stanford University, Dr. Sahai holds several patents for spinal implants and also is a consultant with several spine surgery device companies to design new techniques and implants. With his experience he teaches other surgeons, both nationally and internationally, and works closely with area hospitals, handling everything from the routine to highly complex spinal surgery cases. The Spine and Orthopedic Center was founded by Dr. Sahai with the intention of combining cutting edge technology with multidisciplinary specialty physicians to supply patients with a comprehensive center that provides the very best outcomes. Dr. Sahai's mission is to provide superior quality care, personalized service, and education to his patients so they can confidently make informed decisions about their treatment plan and lifelong wellness. SOC is fully equipped for diagnosing and treating severely debilitating spinal problems, including a high-field MRI, digital X-ray and fluoro technology, a state accredited sedation procedure suite, and an onsite CLIA & COLA accredited laboratory. This allows Dr. Sahai and his team to successfully handle almost any type of spinal condition and treat it accordingly. Due to the sedation being offered in the office, procedures such as kyphoplasty (cement) for compression fractures, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for neck and back pain as well as epidurals can now be performed on a comfortable, immediate and outpatient basis. Dr. Sahai specializes in minimally-invasive spine surgery -- a less invasive way to approach spine surgery with less blood loss, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery times. Given his extensive experience, he also handles significant cervical related issues from non-operative care to motion-preservation neck surgery and complex cervical reconstructions. Also because he is a staff surgeon at local trauma centers, he handles spine trauma, revision spine surgery, tumor-related spinal conditions and scoliosis surgery.

    Dr. Sahai is patient, friendly and with a great bedside manner. His attention to detail really impressed me.
    Boca Raton, FL |
    My credit card was double charged. I have had to call/write/fax multiple times to get a copy of my MRI and report. Now I'm told it's a $25 charge by Yadi. I was never told that before. The billing in this place is so bad its insane.
    Parkland, FL |
    FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR. Saw Dr. Sahai's PA here but she assured me he saw and read my unnecessary MRI. Was told at 38 I have "the wrist of an old person" and assured no tendinitis. When I wised up and went to a sports medicine doc he couldn't believe that this office had me waste money on an MRI for (you guessed it tendinitis) and then couldn't correctly interpret the results. RUN from this place. You'll wait hours and spend a ton of money and probably not get the care you need.
    in Tampa, FL |
    He is an excellent surgeon with a wonderful staff. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Sahai and his practice
    in Boca Raton, FL |
    I have to say Dr. Sahai is everything in a doctor I could ask for. He is patient listened to all my needs and was so down to earth. I would recommend him to anybody looking for an amazing orthopedic surgeon!
    in Davenport, FL |
    Dr. Sahai is caring, knowledgeable and very professional physician. His staff takes after him when it comes to the patients. He will truly listen to you and get to the bottom of your problem before he goes over your options while asking and answering questions.
    in Deerfield Beach, FL |
    Ashish Sahai should not be called a Dr. He attempted a cervical fusion on me and botched it horribly. I wouldn't put the pain I went through on my worst enemy due to his incompetence! Patients beware!
    in Atlanta, GA |
    I'm very thankful to Dr. Sahai and his whole crew. They are truly amazing! My surgery was so smooth and successful that none of my family and friends believe I had one. Thanks!!!
    in Wauchula, FL |
    I've been in several medical practices before, and Dr. Sahai's office is by far the most dedicated full of smiling staff, great service and not long waiting time - at least better than other doctors. Dr. Sahai is very knowledgeable and he has never rushed any of my appointments.
    in Boca Raton, FL |
    BEWARE! After having my fusion done by Dr. Sahai, and being treated like mud by the Pain Management doctor. I had to travel to Emory University to find out the true damage done by this surgeon. I had to have my fusion completely re-done. Unfortunately, I have permanent nerve damage due to the first surgery done by Dr. Sahai. So, if you are into pain and want to have your surgery re-done, I highly recommend this surgeon. If not, get a second opinion at the University of Miami.
    in Longwood, FL |
    There is not other surgeon that I'd recommend besides Dr. Sahai. I remember him staying late with me past seven and still answering all of my questions without rushing it. My surgery was at 7.30am and there he was at 7am making sure that I was feeling OK. I don't forget those things
    in Orlando, FL |
    Best experience in a doctor's office ever! First of all, the staff is very courteous and friendly and then, Dr. Sahai is so humble and professional that you feel like you are with a friend. I know that I'm in the best hands for my upcoming surgery.
    in Parkland , FL |
    Terrible experience, went in on Friday waited over an hour passed out appointment , they where in such a rush to take money asked dozens of questions and when the doctor comes in asks why we came in today he was in such a rush to leave didn't spend more than 5 mins in room looks like he was just ready for the weekend when people are paying money that's not the way to be treated
    in Boynton Beach, FL |
    I'm usually very picky when it comes to choosing a doctor since it is very personal. Luckily a friend of mine recommended Dr. Sahai and I'm very pleased with the level of service and dedication offered. He and his staff deserve all the stars
    in Coconut Creek, FL |
    So, unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to meet Dr. Sahai. I had an appointment scheduled for today and I had already gone through the motion of giving the doctor's office my insurance info over the phone before scheduling the appointment. When I showed up, the girl who checked me in said they were not in network and that according to her notes I had already been notified and that I was willing to pay full price for the visit! So frustrating!!! Completely unprofessional! Stay away!
    Boca Raton, FL |
    The staff was great. Very friendly. The doctor was fabulous. The wait time was a bit long.
    in Boynton Beach |
    Dr Sahai has an excellent bedside manner. He throughly reviewed my condition and performed surgery on my spine in November 2016. 4 weeks post op and making progress.
    in Boynton Beach, FL |
    I see why everybody recommend him. An outstanding professional with a very friendly personality. He is very detailed when it comes to his patients.
    Always very professional & direct, gave options for care & allowed me to explore options before going in to surgery.
    Orlando, FL |
    Great communication, and he checks for everything.
    in Jupiter, FL |
    I have told many friends that if they ever need spinal care, these are the doctors to see
    in Clayton,NC |
    I asked numerous questions an there was not 1 he did not answer. Had 4 vertabrae/disc fusion in the neck with cages an have been very happy just a month out from surgery. Was concerned about infection, due to past surgical history an Dr. Sahai made sure I was infused with antibiotics for at least 2 days. The surgery site (front neck) was fine an healed properly. The staff were very helpful, an everything turned out fine. I would recommend Dr. Sahai definitely to anyone in need of spine surgery

    Excellent service. He engages patients. I often get into my appointment early if I arrive early. I highly recommend Dr. Sahai
    in Deerfield Beach |
    As always wouldn't go anywhere else. The staff & dr. Sahai are great!
    Atlanta, GA |
    Dr. Sahia was kind and thorough. I will continue to see him.
    in Boca Raton, FL |
    Love his bed side manners and that he takes time to explain things to you.
    Atlanta, GA |
    I really liked Dr. Sahia. He's very personable, and I really felt he was 100% focused on me and my problem. I got his full attention and he did not seem rushed at any point.
    in Pompano Beach, FL |
    I really love Dr Sahai. He is such a wonderful person and a very knowledgeable professional. I gladly recommend him!
    in Boca Raton, FL |
    Dr Sahai is very knowledgeable, caring and spent time explaining my medical conditions. The office staff is professional and courteous. I have already recommended him to my friends and family. I feel that I am in very good hands
    Boca Raton, FL |
    I waited 2.5hs before saw dr. Upon being called in I was asked for a urine sample. Why?? This was not an OBGYN or internist... I was not sick or needed a check up. The nurse said they take urine from everyone. Dr.came in & spent less than 2 min with me, told me I needed an MRI & pain management. I later was billed $94 for the urine test the insurance didn't pay. They take unnecessary tests for $$$. This office is a total RIP OFF!! There's much more I could say but not enough space.
    Boca Raton, FL |
    Went to him because he was rating highly, but should have looked closer, there are other reviews that say he takes unneeded tests, so he can bill the insurance company. My first visit they were trying ti get me to take a urine sample ( which is unneeded ) for what i was going there for. I also brought in x-rays that were taken by another doctor only a month ago, they asked me to take another xray, which i replied is it needed i have a very recent one. They responded by saying the doctor needs
    So far, so good! It was only a consultation but Dr. Sahia seemed extremely knowledgeable and familiar with my possible condition. He was also very patient and answered several questions I had with no sense of annoyance. It was a pleasant visit and the office staff were also very nice. Someone came out to check on me while I was waiting to be seen and keep me updated on when I would be called in.
    in Boca Raton |
    When a Dr's office puts making money over patient care it's time to find a new doctor. Had blood work done prior by this Dr. and BC/BS cover everything. Received a bill yesterday for lab work done 10 months ago, said they switched labs and I owe $500 because BC/BS isn't in network for this lab. I called and was told I should have know they were switching labs??? What??? Was informed if I didn't pay by the end of the week they'd put it in collections. Highly recommend finding another Dr.
    in Pompano Beach, FL |
    I will never know if sahai is a good surgeon. After they had me come in 5 times in one month, & sched 3 more charging my insurance and charging me co-pays each time. Dr Sahai then told me he thinks I need two major surgeries.1 posterior cervical spine and 2 on torn right shoulder. I asked for a disc of the 2 MRIs and 6 exrays and a copy of the reports done in THEIR office and was told I would be charged PER PAGE with an extra charge for the disc. PER PAGE! Jeez Just a $ machine. All trust gone
    in Boynton Beach, FL |
    I wish I would've gone to Dr. Sahai sooner. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait to see him, but I think it's worth it. He is professional, caring, and his bedside manner makes the difference. The time he spent with me made me feel comfortable and like I was in the right hands. I always recomend him to anyone who asks for a spine surgeon because he changed my life and I know he could do the same for anyone else who went to him.
    in Hialeah, FL |
    Dr Sahai is an immensely caring and knowledgeable physician. I've been going to see him for a little over two years now, and I wish I would've met him sooner! He offered alternatives before suggesting surgery, and when we had tried absolutely everything, he explained to me the benefits that surgery would bring. I felt nothing but comfort in his approach and his bedside manner. He is a wonderful physician and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a solution. May God continue to bless him.
    in Boca Raton, Fl |
    This office is a total disaster, the staff has no idea what they are doing, the only thing they can do is collect $$$ the know me too you get in, I waited 1 hour before I was brought into a room, then I waited 15 minutes more , I had enough and I left!!!!
    in Pompano Beach, FL |
    My personal doctor made an appointment for me to see this doctor. On arriving for my scheduled appointment I was told that they had not obtained authorization for payment ahead of time from my insurance, so they refused to see me and told me to come back another time. I am 92 years old and almost totally blind, as well as having great difficulties walking. They could have gotten the information that they required ahead of time if the office workers had been doing their job. MONEY MONEY MONEY
