Learn about Dr. Anand

Care Philosophy

Dr. Anand's primary area of research interest involves minimally invasive surgical techniques for spinal disorders and trauma in adults and children, which result in smaller incisions, faster recovery and better patient outcomes. Recently Dr. Anand has pioneered the utilization of three minimally invasive techniques to treat even the most complex of spinal deformity and scoliosis. The Anand Spine Group is also active in the development of new non-fusion, motion preservation techniques including Cervical Artificial Disc Replacements (NeoDisc, PCM, ProDisc), Posterior Non-Fusion Stabilization Systems (Stabilimax NZ, Dynesys, DIAM, Acadia Facet Replacement System ), and Lumbar Artificial Disc Replacements (ProDisc, In Motion).

Dr Anand, Dr levesque, and Dr kong were an amazing team of doctors that did a 9 hour corrective spinal surgery on my father! After 2 years of suffering from 3 previous botched surgeries from another doctor who said there was nothing else that could be done. He would just have to learn to live with it get a good walking cane and drink through a straw.The previous surgeries had left my once 5'10 father so hunched over he was only 5'5. He's now has his life back standing tall! Thank you all so much

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
