    Dr Sharma preformed emergency surgery on my 85 year old father for a massive brain bleed. He was honest in explaining the risks, and gave us hope in explaining the outcomes. The surgery went better than expected and now just a week after surgery my father is in rehab In his hometown for a few days and then will be going home! Dr Sharma is a skilled physician and a wonderful human being. His warm and gracious personality made post surgery communication so easy. My father always looked forward to seeing him each day. He and every member of the ICU team made our father’s stay so comfortable and enjoyable. I can not say enough good things about our experience with Dr Sharma and his team!

    I've had surgery twice with Dr. Sharma. The first time 2 years ago for a compressed Ulnar nerve. Dr. Sharma informed me the surgery would prevent further damage, but wouldn't guarantee reversal of the damage from the pinched nerve. I regained strength in my fingers but still have slight numbness. I had surgery for Carpel Tunnel on the same hand. Testing for Carpel Tunnel showed improvement of the Ulnar nerve surgery. There are no guarantees but I am confident of success in this surgery.

    I needed an emergency laminectomy due to an abyss (infection) in my lower spine. Dr. Sharma was wonderful explaining the procedure and risks (high risk of mortality or morbidity) but also explaining that this was a life saving procedure. Surgery started at 8:00 pm and went until 4:30 am. Dr. Sharma saved my life and was so humble about it. Great bedside manner and a wonderful human being. Very caring. I’d recommend him to anyone.
