Dr Ranasinghe is absolutley the best neurosurgeon in southern California. She has done both of my back surgeries without any complications. She listens to her patients and takes the time to discuss any concerns or problems. I would highly recommend Dr Ranasinghe!

Dr. Ranasinghe performed emergency brain surgery on my wife in October of 2017 for a severe brain bleed. She was able to relieve the pressure and remove the blood clot saving her life. During the past two years my wife continues to improve and we see Dr. Ranasinghe on a regular basis for followup examinations and treatment. Dr. Ranasinghe is always available for consultations and when we are in her office we never feel rushed. It is because of her skill as a neurosurgeon and her compassion as a human being that has enabled my wife to continue to recover. My wife sees Dr. Ranasinghe on a regular basis and she always treats us like family. We love Dr. Ranasinghe...

I have had many different health issues in the last few years. I have met with many different doctors. Most are good. Some are very good. Dr. Ranasinghe is in a category all by herself. She is by far the best Dr. that I have ever seen. I came to her with the worst pain I have ever had. I had pain radiating down my left leg that was unbearable. She found that I had 2 separate problems with my spine(1 from a recent injury and 1 from something that happened over 20 years ago)by taking the time to listen to me and understanding that the pain I was having was caused by more than 1 problem in my back. She performed surgery on me and was able to fix both issues. I am now pain free and I owe it all to her. Knowledge, expertise in her field and the ability to relate to her patients makes Dr. Ranasinghe the BEST Dr. that I have ever seen.

Dr Ranasinghe is one of the best doctors I have ever had when it comes to Dr. patient relationship. She does not leave a rock unturned she does not rush you she listens to any and all questions and concerns. I would refer her anyone I know with neck or back problems, you will not be sorry. She honestly cares about anybody that sees her. A 10+

I first saw Dr. Ranasinghe when I could no longer walk. She sent me over to emergency at Whittier Presbyterian Hospital where after a cat scan diagnosed me with spinal stenosis. I found myself in surgery immediately. Thanks to her and her scheduling of rehabilitation I am walking again ! Thanks Again Doc

Do to a fall, I had C3 & C5 crushed disc replacement with Titanium Disc and Plate with 6 screws in my spine. Prior to surgery, I had excruciating pain on Left & Right shoulders, arms and hands. Dr. Ranasinghe explained in detail the injury damage, the course of repair, recovery, and followup therapy if indicated. Her approach was compassionate yet direct, honest & immediate. Doctor was very thorough insuring I had a good MRI and required evaluation of all my history. She saved my Life & No Pain.

Dr. Ranasinghe really took care of me from the start. I was so nervous then knowing that this might be my only best option-having the ACDF surgery done. I even had my little book with me with all my questions on that first visit. She answered all of it and was very patient. She explained everything in detail and assured me that everything will be ok. I was and still is very satisfied on how she is handling my case. And that goes for her office staff as well. Kudos to everyone and thanks.

Dr. Ranasinghe is without a doubt the best Neurosurgeon in the area. I was diagnosed with a lumbar synovial cyst approximately a 1year ago. I was in SEVERE pain and could not walk or stand for any amount of time. Dr. Ranasinghe did the surgery to remove the large cyst and a lumbar fusion... what a great experience. Surgery went exceptional well along with the recovery. I am now a year out of surgery and doing great. I highly recommend Dr. Ranasinghe!

Her diagnostics skills are excellent. She takes time to explain things and listens to all concerns & responds with detailed answers. She is meticulous in her planning and surgical strategy. Her measures for mitigating potential complications are first rate. Most important is her exceptional skills as a Neurosurgeon. I had a complex C spine Laminectomy and the outcome was 100% successful. I feel better than I have in 3 years. Recovery has been fast. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Ranasinghe.
