When I met with Dr. Kotecha I was on crutches, after my meeting with him I had a full explanation of my diagnosis and was on to a plan and recovery. He did not hesitate to move me into surgery. I regained full functionality of my left leg as before the injury. I would whole heartedly trust him with those I care about. He is truly amazing at what he does. He was a blessing to me. I am forever grateful for him. His staff was friendly and just as easy to talk to as is Dr. Katecha

It’s difficult to find a doctor that has the patients wellbeing as his main focus when it comes to chronic pain and Dr. Kotecha is one of the few!

TEXAS – Apr 06, 2018
Phenomenal surgeon hands down. Dr. Kotecha was the second neurosurgeon I saw for severe back pain. I’d suffered for years with no relief. I’d actually collapsed from pain before I saw the 1st Neurosurgeon who recommended more therapy. I’d been getting therapy off and on for 30 years with no relief. Dr. Kotecha recommended surgery and upon waking up in recovery I felt immediate relief for the 1st time in 30 years. I’ve recommended Dr. Kotecha to all my friends and family.

The moment I awoke from surgery the pain was gone. I felt very comfortable with his constant communication and explanations to help me improve the quality of my life. I trusted in him as a skilled surgeon and he followed through. I will recommend him to anyone. He is a gifted surgeon. He even has established a 2 month revovery program for me.

Dr. Kotecha is very straightforward and professional. He explained my injury very clearly and did my surgery. I get compliments on how clean the incision is and what a good surgeon I must have had.
