In fact, I have referred my friends to Dr. Sekhon and he helped them also. I suggest anyone with back problems to at least consult with him for a second opinion. He's a knowledgeable and professional man with lots of experience. I did a lumbar fusion on me almost 9 years ago and I'm still going strong. He has a very skilled surgery team also. I would refer him anytime to anyone.

I've had low back pain issues for 20+ years. I treated with Spine Nevada for over 15 months, then finally scheduled for extensive surgery but not allowed to meet the surgeon before surgery. I consulted Dr. Sekhon for a 2ND opinion. I saw him on my very first visit! I immediately felt so safe & secure with my care in his hands. Because of Dr. Sekhon's surgical skill & expertise in performing my complicated surgery, I have virtually no more pain & numbness. I feel better than I have in 25 years!

Dr Sekhon and his staff truly cared about my well being. They explained everything thoroughly, had a great bedside manner, and took care of all of my needs and concerns. Would highly recommend them to Everyone!!

I was so fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Sekhon. I found him to be very patient and understanding, giving me 45 minutes of time for my walk in off the street appointment. He listened to me, and discussed my situation with me in a manner I could understand. He successfully performed what I believe was an extremely complex surgical procedure on me. His aftercare has been excellent, frequently checking on me (I live 220 miles away). I am very grateful to him and his entire staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sekhon if you need spinal surgery. Four years ago I went to him with pain but he wanted to try conservative treatment first. This included an epidural and physical therapy. I've recently gone back to see him and after looking at my MRI this time he said he recommended surgery this time. He is so knowledgeable and is able to explain what is going on, what the surgery does, and he doesn't hold anything back. I'm 3 mo post op and doing great. NO PAIN

Having consulted several other Doctors and after numerous unsuccessful treatments & therapies; and a surgical recommendation, so happy to see Dr. Sekhon. He came highly recommended and I was thankful to become his patient. The precisie way he evaluated my symptoms and possible causes; eliminating them one by one. Finally, I feel I have a course of treatment and medication that is helping me. He is thoughtful, kind and takes the time to answer all questions.
in Sparks, NV |
I saw Dr. Sekhon as a referral from another physician. Dr. Sekhon showed me my MRI and how 3 of my discs were crushing my spinal column. He said that unless I had the surgery soon that the nerves would die and I would suffer paralysis. When I woke up in the recovery room most of my back and leg pain was already gone. He visited me twice in the hospital and explained what happened during surgery and assessed my current condition. I was then put on a physical therapy program. I hearty endorse him.
in Reno, NV |
Dr. Sekhon and his staff are very polite and professional. Dr. Sekhon listened carefully to my concerns and made sure I had an active role in determining my course of treatment. My surgical experience was very positive and the results are better than I expected. I highly recommend Dr. Sekhon.
