I was in pain for 7 years. After years of injections and 1 surgery from 3 different doctors. I thank God I met Dr. Nitin Khanna! I told him my about my miserable pain some days can't sleep or stand. He assured me with such confidence after my MRI that he would be able to relieve me from the pain I was having. As one can imagine I said to myself I heard this before. It's been over 2 weeks since my lower lumbar fusion. Dr. Nitin is a man of his word! I am so grateful to him and his staff! I am going to follow his instructions of allowing healing to take place. As for pain I feel none. If I feel this good after 2 weeks I can only imagine what I'm going to feel like on my next scheduled visit. Dr. Khanna God blessed you with healing hands! My wife and I pray blessings on your practice and life. Thank you so much! Ignacio and Mercedes Rios Jr.

Great surgeon. Did my l5 s1 fusion 8/7/17. It took me a solid year to start feeling good again. I'm skiing again, did 25 days last year in the Rockies. Mission accomplished.

In February 2019, I underwent surgery with Dr. Khanna and his team. I couldn't be happier with my outcome, and the care I received before, during, and after my procedure has been outstanding. As a registered nurse for nearlly 40 years, I highly recommend Dr. Khanna and his team. My only regret is that I waited so long to get help.

I'm a 45 yr old male who since April of 2018 was suffering from nerve pain in my neck, shoulders and arm. I went to clinics for injections but nothing seemed to work, my pain was so bad I could not sleep, or stop my hand from shaking. I finally went to my family Dr to be referred to D.R Khanna and I can tell you now I'm feeling as if nothing ever was wrong. Dr Khanna was caring and explained my options to me with great detail. I highly recommend him to anybody who suffers from pain.

I've been seeing Dr. Khanna since 2013. He's done my Lower Lumber Fusion and currently my Sacroiliac Joint Fusions. He's professional and friendly. Definitely knows his stuff! I absolutely recommend him to anyone with spine problems.

24 male 6 foot 240 pounds. I had a microdiscectomy with Dr. Khanna. He was very professional and answered all my questions before the surgery. He made me try all other routes before we decided on the surgery. His nurse was super helpful as well. The recovery was rough but felt relief immediately. After 1.5 weeks I was back to work limited, after 2 week I was back for the full day. 6 months later I am doing great and my life has improved more than I could have thought.

Dr. Khanna is an excellent Dr. I had C6and C7 fused in 2010. The scar left by the surgery on my neck is completely unnoticeable. Recovery time was amazingly short. He is very skilled at his profession and is the most caring and compassionate Dr. I have ever met. My latest appt with him was May of 2018, as I was having problems with pain and was told by another Dr that I should have an MRI and see Dr. Khanna. When I met with Dr. Khanna, he looked at the MRI and assured me that my neck C4 and C5 i

Dr. Khanna performed minimally-invasive surgery on my lumbar spine. The results were excellent. The first time I stood following surgery I knew the pain I had suffered was gone. Of course there was incision and surgical pain, which is to be expected. I was totally satisfied with the outcome and would highly recommend Dr. Khanna.

My entire experience with Orthopedics Specialists of NWI was nothing but the best. From the scheduling of my appt,, to the front desk greeting me, to getting x-rays, to my visits w/his nurse, Denise & my calls of questions & concerns to her after surgery, to my MRI experience to all of my visits w/Dr. Khanna.

I was suffering for several years with lower back/sciatica leg pain. I tried chiropractic visits, Gen M.D ordered therapy and epidural shots. Nothing helped until I was referred to Dr.Khanna by a friend. He does minimally invasive lumbar spine surgery. His staff was very professional and friendly. After reviewing my lumbar x-rays we set up a surgery date. It was the best thing I ever did and still tell myself "why did I wait so long"! I would recommend him to anyone. He is very caring.

Dr. Khanna is a very caring and compassionate orthopedic surgeon with excellent capabilities. He discussed with me the options that were available to me prior to surgery, and listened to my concerns. Due to his surgery expertise, I can now live a pain free active life. A life I haven't had in many months.

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.
