Simply THE BEST! Dr. Sekhon did surgery on my back after i broke it in a freak accident. ( trying to pull a 130 lb bail of hay up in to my truck bed. My body was at a weird angle,so when i pulled,heard 2 loud pops.down I went for about 15 minutes. Once I could walk,drove home. Figured I was ok. By that night, was pretty sore. Was telling friends on Fb what happened,many said I needed to go to ER. as i have a neurological disease & they were worried. One actually called the ambulance that took me. That is when i met Dr Sekhon. Because of the neuro disease and dystonia, he wanted to be as conservative as possible. What ever he did, it has held up well and only this past year have I started to have much more pain. might be time to go see him again. such a great Dr! Such a great ,friendly, knowledgeable staff!

I had a four level laminectomy operation with Dr. Seckhon. He was the only surgeon that suggested something different than a fusion, which I was very afraid of. Everything went absolutely well, it solved all my problems and I'm back almost at the same level I was years ago before the start of my problems. Dr. Sekhon is very, very capable, he is a kind person and explained everything very well before and after the surgery. I really appreciated his professionalism.

I am a physician myself. Dr Sekhon has operated my spine twice in the last four years. He is a consummate professional and an outstanding surgeon. I have had excellent results. His team is very attentive. I would strongly recommend Dr Sekhon and his team at ROC to anybody who needs his highly skilled professional services.

After being diagnosed with stenosis at L4-L5 that was impacting my everyday activities, I sought out Dr. Sekhon for treatment options. He described the range of possibilities clearly and completely, including the surgery (laminectomy) that he thought most likely to produce improvement, and which we ultimately selected. Dr. Sekhon inspired confidence, maintaining the highest levels of professionalism at all times - as did his support staff. I can recommend him heartily, and without hesitation, on every count.

From the very first visit, I was favorably impressed by Dr. Sekhon and his staff. He explained everything and handed out information for me to read. I felt very confident that he was a competent and caring doctor. I am about 7 weeks post surgery, and as I look back now, I realize how well I was taken care of. I feel that I had the best care available, and most of all, my pain is gone!

Amazing doctor and support staff, especially the young ladies that take the first call!! They understood the urgency and got my mother in fast. Dr Sekhon explained options without rushing and he went with a less invasive surgery than other doctors. The very best part after surgery was that he got her set up in the most amazing rehab. She was up and going in 3 days and recovering well. I truly believe the quality of my mothers care has cut her recovery and healing time tremendously. Words can’t say enough !

As a surgeon myself, I was quite an awe of Dr. Sekhon. Is professionalism, insight, ability to identify with my circumstances and make clear at all timesHe was looking out for me. He did it with behavior and not with words. My non-operative outcome was terrific.

Dr Sekhon is a rare experience because he takes the time to listen and explain how to solve the problem. He actually writes out a plan on what he wants to do to stop your pain. I walked away feeling very confident in his plan. He and his staff are very professional and friendly.

I have had several encounters with Dr. Sekhon and Greg Graves and the remainder of his team over the last few years and they have always provided compassion and patience. The team works well together to make your experience seamless. Dr. Sekhon is not pushy and offers multiple layers of treatment before surgical options and he listens and explains things in an understandable way.

I had a surgery consult with Dr. Sekhon having experienced a painful herniated disc in my lower back. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, helped me understand my injury, and gave me advise and exercises to strengthen areas of weakness in my back. He listened to my questions patiently. He did not recommend surgery but allow the body to heal on its own time. I have seen Dr. Sekhon twice. I value his judgement. It has been over a year and my back has improved considerably. I have become very aware of how I move and not to lift heavy weights while still engaging in activities I like to do - biking, boarding, hiking.

You won't find anyone better than Dr. Sekhon. He works miracles when you think all hope is lost. Don't trust anyone else with your delicate surgeries. Dr. Sekhon and his staff are the best in town and will not let you down. He doesn't jump into surgery without exhausting all other efforts. Such a blessing that we have someone of his caliber here in Reno.

Dr. Sekhon is extremely knowledgable on the most advanced surgical procedures and has excellent "bedside manner." He and his PA, Curt Erickson, really slowed down and took the time to answer ALL of my questions. I'm confident I was in the best possible care through this very important surgery. Thank you, Dr. Sekhon, for my new back. I couldn't be happier with my results!

I have been dr. Sekon’s patient for about two years. my first visit he spoke quickly . Every sentence out of his mouth was valuable. No wasted chatter. He exuded confidence which made me believe in him and his abilities. Avery pleasant person that is direct and realistic. After speaking with him i felt hopefu. The prospect of he performing surgery on my back did not frighten me but instead made me completely happy comfortable with the idea. Highly recommend Dr. Sekonn.

I am a 67 yearly male. Dr Sekhon treated me twice seperately for lower disc fractures in my back. My back is like new. After many years in construction, the wear and tear started to surface. My arms, wrist and neck ached 24/7. Burning, pulsating, tingling and not able to sleep without a burning sensation going from my shoulder to my finger tips. Dr Sekhon performed an Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion in the C4-C5-C6-C7 areas. I can say with utter amazement I am rid of the agonizing pain.
