Dr. Yanni is thorough, patient, and conservative. I was suffering from a herniated disc, pinched nerve and radiculopathy. Dr. Yanni took the time to explain my situation, using the MRI and xrays, to my wife and I. His surgery preparation was very thorough and my surgery went extremely well. I am 6 weeks post-operation for a Cervical Discectomy and Fusion at C 5/6. I have had minimal discomfort since the operation and the radiculopathy symptoms have not returned.

Dr. Yanni carefully evaluated my issue & refered me to see few other doctors, making sure I understood everything & not about $$. He cares & wants the best outcome and that I am happy with the result. He was professional, personal and confident. For my surgery, I should have stayed in hospital 3 to 5 days but I left the same day. ?? I highly recommend Dr. Yanni to everyone!

Dr Yanni is amazing! His skills are impeccable and he is always learning and improving them. I personally know that he is more than capable because I had pretty much everything you can have and he was able to sort it all out. Before the surgery I thought I was going to be in a wheelchair. Now I still walk, garden and live my life. It's wonderful. I am so fortunate and am better because I met Dr Yanni.

Funny that someone else mentioned his calmness. He is very thorough and has this confidence without being arrogant. A dear friend of our just had back surgery by him and he was amazing!!! I am very confident in his ability to fix my neck.
in Dana Point, CA |
Dr. Yanni is a master in his field. In our case, we?re talking a minimally invasive fusion of the lumbar spine for an otherwise healthy man in his mid 60?s. Dr. Yanni?s expertise, his discretion for surgical procedures and his professionalism has benefited our entire family. The recovery was amazingly quick and we couldn?t be happier. 4 years post-surgery and my man is going strong!
in Huntington Beach, CA |
Dr. Yanni walked into my room and everything seemed to slow down (in a good way, mind racing & all) & this feeling of confidence exuded from Dr. Yanni devoid of any arrogance! He very simply explained my situation & informed me how he could help. Nothing pushy, black or white, just calmly breaking down the situation & then giving me my options. Without being forced or coerced in anyway, his calming good nature & somewhat demiurge character made me feel relaxed & at ease with my predicament.
in Irvine, CA |
Dr. Yanni is one of the highest quality neurosurgeons in the United States. This past year, I was in a horrible accident and suffered multiple fractures in my lower back. My spine and spinal cord translated laterally, and I suffered extensive nerve damage. The first surgeon assured me I would be paralyzed by the end of the operation. Dr. Yanni took my case, performed a T11-L4 fusion that lasted 12 hours, and I walked 7 days later. His knowledge, skills and abilities are second to NONE.
in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Yanni is an excellent surgeon. I had C4-C7 fused and the pain was gone right after the surgery and the recovery time was minimal. Oh, the wonders of modern medicine! Being that I have RA, this will not likely be my last visit with a neurosurgeon and I most definitely return to Dr. Yanni and his Jedi Knight surgical skills :)
