We were so glad that we were referred to Dr. Khanna. My husband had seen Dr. Khanna first and he performed surgery on his neck. He did such a wonderful job. Since I had been bringing my husband to his appointments, Dr. Khanna had noticed something was happening with me. Turns out a disc collapsed and pinched a nerve. He did a microdiscectomy on me that worked temporarily. I then had a L4 S1 fusion with an osteocell. He fixed me! Dr. Khanna is polite and so smart.. We refer him to everyone!

After suffering with neck pain for several years after an injury, I along with my wife (who is very skeptical about any type of surgery), consulted Dr Khanna. We left his office with 100% confidence that he was the right Doctor to choose for treatment. He gave us a very detailed explanation of my injury as well as a complete simple to understand explanation of the surgical treatment that he would recommend that would give me the best results. I highly recommend Dr Khanna

Dr. Khanna and all of his staff are very caring and supportive. My husband had neck surgery which went very well. We like the idea of Dr. office, X-rays, MRI's and therapy all at the same location this prevents patients from having to travel to get any of the services. Minimally invasive surgery is what we were looking for and found with Dr. Khanna. Would recommend him to anyone needing spine surgery which we have already done. Thank you for treating us as human beings. The Ackerman's

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Khanna and his nurse Denise. I had cervical disc replacement surgery and have had great results. This surgery was so much better than the fusion I had by a different Dr, like night and day. Dr. Khanna was very easy o talk to, and he explained every and answered all my questions Hi highly recommend him to friends and family.

Dr Khanna is truly the best! He re-did a failed fusion from another surgeon at L4/5 for me and allowed me to return to life and work pain free as a firefighter. When I injured my neck & nothing else worked, he was the only surgeon I trusted and wanted. He did a C4/5 & C5/6 double fusion and I am healing phenomenally! Him and his nurse Denise are the only ones I want to see & the only ones I recommend for spinal care and surgery. Both beyond knowledgeable & compassionate & treat you like family!

I had had back/hip/buttock pain for the last five years. I saw both the Sports Medicine Physician for The University of Notre Dame and the Sports Medicine Physician for Marquette University and the Milwaukee Brewers professional baseball team, neither of them could figure out what was causing my pain. Dr. Khanna took one look at my MRI and not only told me, but showed me the obvious problem with my spine. I am now able to be the active mother and wife I used to be, all while being pain free.

I liked Dr. Khanna and his nurses Denise and Kelly.. However my issues are still there and I am seeking another opinion...with laser surgery next time. His was very non informed or overlooked my allergies to pain medications! ...so therefore he did not perscribe any pain meds after surgery so I must tell you how I suffered. I was informd easy outpaitent surgery someone needs to be there 24 hours...My husband had to call off work for a week!!!!! Recovery was a 2 an a half month ordeal.
Merrillville, IN |
Dr. Khanna was upfront from the start. Conservative treatments were not an option because of my condition. He recommended surgery and was very understanding of my fears. He took all the time I needed to explain the procedure, expected outcome, and time for recovery. I have made it through an up and down recovery with the encouraging and thoughtful responses from him and Denise his nurse. The entire office staff has been pleasant and understanding with every interaction.

My experience with Dr. Khanna was excellent. He was very straight forward with the solutions, and his advice always worked. He kept his promises when he told me when I would be able to get up back on my feet. My surgery went smooth as promised and my recovery time thereafter is also going smoother as days go by. I would highly recommend Dr. Khanna to anybody with spinal injuries. He lives up to my expectations
I would recommend Dr. Khanna to anyone ! Soon after I had the spine surgery I noticed very good changes . He did not lie to me when he said He would change my life for the better. I have since joined a gym to take off the weight and what makes me the most happy is being able to keep up with my kids and enjoy time with them without feeling the pain anymore. It was my goal to not live on pain killers and that goal has been met thanks to Dr. Khanna

Munster, IN |
Dr. Khanna was very personable and thorough explaining to me why i was having the pain in my back and buttocks down my leg. He pointed to my MRI films showing the narrowing causing my condition. Also he explained my options for treatment. I appreciated the fact he said he would try the most conservative approach first. I felt very comfortable with him and felt he took time to explain my condition with much knowledge.I would highly recommend him to anyone with spine issues.
