    I can write a novel about my severe scoliosis and the pain it brought. I looked for a spine doctor that could help went to a few teaching hospitals in the Chicago area and no one could come up with a plan. I found Dr. Anand featured on an NBC station that highlighted the less invasive surgery he was doing. Flew out to California that summer and went back in November 2010 to have the surgery. I am so grateful I found him and now am mostly pain free. He is truly amazing. I highly recommend him.

    Dr. Anand is the best spine surgeon in the world! I came to Anand when my back pain was chronic. I had tried cortisone shots, facet blocking, all the non invasive strategies that are out there, complete waste of time and money. I made a consult visit with Anand, he told me to get the MRI and bring it back to him, I was back in a week. Two weeks later I was at Cedars on the table for spinal fusion. That was 2.5 years ago,I have my life back! All because of Dr. Anand! I can't ever thank him enough

    He is concise, precise and I believe he might be a wizard.
