9/19/2019 I recently underwent an XLIF spine fusion (L4-L5) procedure with Dr Kaveh Khajavi and his team. I cannot express the constant feeling of severe leg pain, numbness and weakness that existed for years prior to this surgery. Walking with my family proved to be a challenge. I did significant research on this procedure and had numerous meetings with Dr Khajavi and his team prior to my surgery. He personally answered all questions I and my family had throughout this process. After surgery, my pain was completely gone and have never had any reoccurrence. I consulted with a number of physicians and selected Dr Khajavi because of his outstanding reputation, philosophy of creating a minimally invasive process and extensivve experience in procedures such as this. I can say with conviction that Dr Khajavi lived up to the high standards he has already created and performed this complex surgery with perfection.

After living with severe pain in my left leg for almost a year, Dr Khajavi performed a minimially invasive surgery which gave me immediate relief! It was miraculous! His support staff of Jackie, Patty and Annette were very professional and helped me though the pre-op and post-op. I highly recommend neurosurgeon, Dr. Kaveh Khajavi, and the staff of Southeastern Neurosurgical Specialists to anyone suffering from debilitating back and leg pain. Dan E.

I had a great experience with Dr. Khajavi. My PCP recommended Dr Kaveh Khajavi, neurosurgeon, when I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis. It was a very fortunate recommendation for me. Dr. Khajavi was very thorough and direct in explaining what needed to be done as he described the type of laminectomy I needed and the reasoning behind his thinking. He is easy to understand and conservative in his approach. While there was a degree of urgency, I never felt rushed. On surgery day everything went exactly has he and his staff said it would. I was up and walking in the hospital hall about 8 hours after the surgery. His physician assistant, Patti Braun, is very knowledgeable and patient, and his medical tech Jackie Esparza was very responsive both before and after the surgery. Together they make a great team. Five stars all around.

I had spinal fusion surgery with Dr. Khajavi on Jan. 29, and I could not be more pleased. I have found Dr. K. to be very caring (what doctor spends 30 minutes with a patient?), very meticulous and very straightforward. In my case he had to remove 25 year old hardware from a previous fusion, then fuse another level. Mine was not an easy surgery, but he and his team were and continue to be wonderful. His staff also is approachable and easy to reach, which is important after surgery when all kinds of questions tend to pop up.

My experience with Dr. Khajavi was excellent. His last solution for me for my back problems was surgery. That is the route we ended up going after trying PT and injections. The surgery went better than I expected and was able to leave the hospital the same day without an overnight stay. Recuperation went well and I was back to normal in two months.

Dr. Khajavi repaired my exploded T11 &12 vertebrae. He was very honest, sincere, and realistic with my expectations. He was meticulous removing bone fragments from around the spinal cord. Went to Dr Rhodts for a second opinion years later. He praised the work Khajavi performed and told me he did an excellent job. I agree and wouldn't have any other surgeon due to his results.

Excellent physician. Very down to earth and does explain your condition in detail easy to understand. My fusion procedure went just as planned. After years of severe back,leg pain and weakness I am able to finally walk without pain.He has to be one of the best in Atlanta!

I’m sure this doctor knows his stuff, but he just doesn’t seem to care very much. It felt like I was just another number to him. He didn’t seem to care about my comfort at all. I ended up going to a completely different neurosurgeon.

I had a great experience with Dr. Khajavi . He listened to everything I had to say, then after listening to his point of care plan for someone in my situation with terrible back pain, it was such a relief to know that through pain management and not surgery, hopefully I can deal with the pain better. He said however, if I should ever need to see him to come back. In my opinion, he's a very straight forward doctor and has his patients best interest at heart.

Dr. Khajavi took me in because I had a failed previous lumbar fusion elsewhere and couldn't get relief from the pain. He did an amazing job and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
