Dr Verma operated on my neck on 9-10-19. I had sustained major injuries from a bad fall resulting in multiple problems one was a need for neck surgery. I agreed to have the surgery after meeting with Dr Verma and learning how serious my neck injuries were. I skated through the surgery, with minimal pain and a quick recovery. A year later , today I could actually move my neck side to side as I haven't done in years. Of course I wanted a complete recovery of all the other injuries I had from the fall, that didn't happen, nor was it promised. I must say that Dr Verma has gone out of his way to follow up with me after the surgery, recommended me to a good PT for balance therapy. I have never met a doctor so caring and followed up as he did with my recovery.

My husband Jim and I moved to the L. A. area 1 1/2 years ago. My husband needed to see a back and neck surgeon. We were recommended to see Dr Verma. Jim needed neck surgery and then back surgery. Dr. Verma talked to us many times explaining the procedures before Jim made his decision to go with the neck first and then his back. Dr Verma is very compassionate. he takes time listening to his patients. He makes sure you're comfortable with the procedure he will be doing before your surgery date. Dr. Verma is a 5* surgeon and 5* for personality.

After suffering hip pain for years, I was referred for an MRI. My MRI actually showed my problem to be with my spine. I was referred to Dr Verma by my orthopedist. On my first visit, Dr Verma described my condition as stenosis of the L5-S1. He described my options and said surgery should be the last resort. His recommendation was to start with a guided-image injection into the nerve and physical therapy to develop core muscle strengthening. I found him very caring, compassionate and willing to completely explain my options and to give me a description of the surgery. I did not feel rushed at all. The injections and physical therapy gave me several months relief. When the pain returned, I decided to schedule the surgery. Dr Verma described the laminectomy procedure in detail along with the risks involved. He gave me a choice of hospitals and the pros and cons of each. I would recommend him to anyone experiencing back pain. He is a competent doctor who takes time to explain.

Knowing that Marv could not live the rest of his life with pain from hips to ankles, the first meeting with Dr. Verma gave the answer. Dr. Verma entered the examination room with grace, confidence and compassion. With us, it was love at first sight. Now, 2 1/2 weeks after surgery, Marv is walking without pain, and soon will walk without support. Thanks to you, Dr. Verma, for caring, skill, and excellent follow-through in every part of this experience. Signed, Marvin Jahn and Ella Walton

Dr. Verma is one of the best spine specialists and surgeon. He is professional and very knowledgeable. He is caring and compassionate doctor. I came to him after months of sciatic pain across my low back and down my legs, to where I could hardly walk or stand up straight. After having surgery, a laminectomy,(L-3 to L-5), sciatic pain was gone and I was able to stand up straight and walk normally. Dr Verma took time to explain everything I needed to know before surgery and made sure I understood everything he said. I felt completely at ease and comfortable to have Dr. Verma perform this surgery. He is a 5 star doctor!

I swore I would never have back surgery after witnessing my mother go through 4 surgeries without successful outcomes. However, in 2018, the pain in my legs drove me to seeks help. I tried Physical Therapy, Chiropractic treatments, and epidural injections. Nothing helped, so I went to see Dr. Verma who shares a practice with an orthopedic surgeon I had a successful experience with 7 years ago. Dr Verma is not only a great surgeon, but also takes time to patiently explain what is wrong, how it can be fixed, and the options available for a successful outcome. I saw him about a half dozen times before scheduling surgery—his patience, and ability to explain the situation is very reassuring. I had spine surgery by Dr. Verma in June of 2019, and as soon as I woke from the surgery, I knew the pain in my legs was gone. Now, I am looking forward to traveling, and leading an active lifestyle pain-free, thanks to Dr. Verma!

I went to Dr Verma for balance issues and lack of dexterity in my hands. He diagnosed deterioration of the cervical spine. He explained the problems in detail in terms that a layman could understand. He was very caring, keeping in direct contact. He answered all questions for myself and my wife. My surgery was a success and he has followed me closely to be sure all is going well. I have had several orthopedic surgeries and Dr Verma was by far the surgeon that my wife and I had the most confidence in. Kent NaVeaux

Four months of frustration with loss of feeling and motor skills in my hands and legs, led me to meet Dr. Verma. Within minutes of seeing my neck MRI, he was able to diagnose, and suggest the best options to help me return to normal day to day life. Dr. Verma was extremely personable in our initial consultation and was very up front and honest with my options. After doing my due diligence, and learning about Dr. Verma's skills, experience, and outreach, I knew I was in the best hands and decided to move forward with my ACDF procedure. Dr. Verma and everyone at his office, worked diligently to help me get the best appointment available and made me feel like I was the only patient they were focusing on. This is HUGE in my eyes. I really felt like he was my personal surgeon and we went through this together. I'm 'm confident you will not find a surgeon with a more personal concierge approach to his practice.

I met Dr Verma in 2016. I was suffering from spondylosis in my spine and severe sciatic nerve pain down my legs. After all of the tests that he had performed oh, it was a decision to do a spinal fusion on my L4 L5. Dr Verma is a very kind, understanding, he really takes time to really get to know his patients. After my surgery he would call to make sure that I was doing well. He has the best bedside manner. He has changed my life he is an exceptional surgeon. He treats his patients like family.

I visited Dr. Verma for reoccurring back pain from a previous injury. I was instantly impressed by his kind and caring manner. He carefully reviewed my case and options for me and put a plan in place. I eventually decided on surgery and am so pleased that I did. Dr. Verma is an excellent surgeon! called me at home 3 times after I was released from the hospital to make sure I didn’t need anything. You won’t go wrong with Dr. Verma!

Outstanding Surgeon. Very patient oriented. Performed spinal fusion surgery in December 18. He has closely followed my progress and been quickly available for any questions or concerns that have come up. He provided his cell so that I could contact him after hours and on weekends. I did, he answered quickly. When he evaluated my case he provided multiple approaches, clearly explaining each and it's associated pluses and minuses so that we came to an agreement of the best course. Great doctor

Dr Kushagra Verma Dr Kushgara Verma was very thorough in his assessment of my physical complaint. He compared old MRI data to the current scans. Dr Verma spent quite a while explaining the test results at several appointments and then the options to resolve the problem. I felt very at ease knowing he was doing my surgery. After surgery Dr Verma was wonderfully attentive, calling to get frequent updates and visiting 2-3 times each day. Once home he called my husband to keep abreast of my status.

You can't imagine how wonderful it feels to stand upright and walk without a walker or cane. At the age of 76 (Feb. '17) I was fortunate to have Dr. Verma re-do my spine at UWMC. I recommend him for spinal correction surgery. He is a miracle worker and allowed me to get a life again. He cares about his patients, listens, and works out personal solutions for spinal problems. YES, YES, YES...get that surgery. You won't be sorry. Dr. Verma may tell you to call Lana. Call and I'll share my story.

After suffering for two years with pain from a botched surgery, I was incredibly lucky to find Dr. Verma. He was able to come up with a revision that corrected the previous surgery and allowed me to stand straight and be free of pain. He explained in detail, patiently answered my questions, did not downplay the risks, and followed up with personal phone calls. He was truly concerned that my surgery and recovery went well. He is incredibly talented and a genuinely nice guy.Thank you Dr. Verma!

Throughout his treatment I truly felt he went above and beyond offering information and assurances. He personalized the treatment, exhibiting true concern for me by personally – not just having a nurse call – personally following up before my surgery, immediately after the operation and then numerous times during my recovery process. Additionally, the nurses and staff at his office returned calls, forwarded messages, and assisted with paperwork quickly and professionally. Thank you Dr. Verma!

It has been three months since surgery and I am finally free of my tailbone pain after seven years. I am so happy I decided to go forward with the surgery with Dr. Verma. Dr. Verma and the UW team were incredible: kind, professional, and highly skilled. I was so impressed by the amount of research they did to ensure my slightly-unusual surgery was successful, but most of all I am so relieved to have found a doctor that listened carefully and cared about my recovery. Thank you, Dr. Verma!

We went to Dr. Verma after interviewing, and being disappointed with, several other surgeons. I was unable to walk more than a hundred yards before my leg & hip pain went to unbearable, and made it impossible to walk. Standing was agonizing. Dr. Verma was compassionate, informative, and most of all, he listened. The surgery went well, and I'm walking 2+ miles every day, and chasing a new puppy. At 59, it's nice to be able to walk again...
