What People Say About Dr. Praveen Mummaneni, MD

My mother had her 11th back/neck surgery with Dr. Mummaneni, after 8 hours of a 13 hour surgery he stopped the operation due to a problem. She now is paralyzed from the chest down. In my opinion he should have broke the surgery up and not attempted to complete such a long surgery at one time. Also, he gave her false hope in believing that she would regain her legs. He continues to be evasive and not explain what went wrong.

I went to 3 other neurosurgeons for opinions & after consulting other surgeons it is my opinion he wanted to over operate. He was pushing a 6 level fusion. It would have had a life changing effect on my ability to work & even drive. I didn't feel he was forthcoming in explaining the surgery outcomes. I am glad I went to another surgeon @ a different hospital.

An excellent doctor who did my husbands very complicated back surgery without the use of blood. He was very professional, explained thoroughly what he was going to do and how he was going to do it. He also took personal interest in our wishes and worked with us to accomplish the surgery. We appreciate his professional attitude and skill as a doctor and highly recommend him!

Exceptional Surgeon, He's very professional and caring, takes the necessary time to explain issues in detail, answers all your questions. Fusion was very successful. Prior surgery with UC Davis, unsuccessful. UCSF, Doctors are much more educated, caring and provide Quality Patient Care. Thank you, Dr. Mummaneni
