Dr. Khurana is incredible. I had a C6-C7 disc herniation which was causing nonstop, blinding pain. He easily diagnosed it and was able to schedule me for surgery within a week. Great bedside manner, great follow-up, responsive staff. Could not recommend more highly.

Dr. Khurana was a genius. He discovered my problem immediately and I was treated very quickly. There was extensive spine surgery required and I was told by two other doctors that I needed a hip replacement. NOT TRUE....I feel that I was fortunate to have an appointment with S. Khurana and he knew the problem without any question. Thank you DOCTOR KHURANA. My trust was greatly rewarded.

The best spine surgeon in the business IMO. He's recognized as a Super Doctor for a reason. Important training you want to look for in a spine surgeon doing fusions, which Dr Khurana has, is a fellowship in spine reconstruction because the doctor is removing certain parts of your spine and putting it back together with implants like a car engine that's taken apart and put back together. I've had several surgeries with Dr Khurana... 2019: L4L5/L5S1 fusion, instrumentation, and decompression and 2020: L4L5/L5S1 hardware removal from the 2019 fusion and C5C6 disc replacement. For my neck, I had radiating pain/ongoing tingling down both arms which was exacerbated even from carrying groceries and severe chronic pain in the lower back due to having very little disc material left and couldn't sit long. After the 2019 fusion, I was walking the next morning as soon as I was allowed and my neck disc replacement was a complete success getting rid of the pain down both arms. Dr Khurana is efficien

This review is long over due but this man literally changed my life. I had C6/C7 disc fusion surgery in 2017 and have had zero issues with neck pain since that time. I run 15-20 miles a week and lift weights and despite being a few years older, I am now stronger and in better shape now than before my surgery. I had zero pain post surgery and was immediately better and not hindered by neck pain. Back and neck surgery is by definition a hit or miss event for some people, but I literally do not believe it is possible to be in any better hands than you are with Dr. Khurana.

Dr khurana is evidently a brilliant surgeon but you can’t see him! You only see his assistant! In my case he totally dropped the ball post-surgery and when the problem recurred, he just recommended more surgery! I am 89 and decided no more surgeries! I would never go to khurana again.

An incredible surgeon. Dr. Khurana has treated my spine conditions for a few years. I always feel a relief the day I go into surgery knowing I’m going to be pain free in the area being worked upon. Three surgeries in the last 6 years with fusion of three vertebrae and three new discs implanted just recently. Superb staff, especially Elaine Kimmie P.A. Appointments are easy to make And he runs on time. Parking is affordable and easy

Obviously, Dr Khurana is a busy Dr. He said I needed surgery o my neck. I should have just agreed with him, right there and then but I had o get a 2nd opinion which my primary requested. To find out what Dr Khurana already told me. I wasted so much time because Dr Khurana was ready then to give me surgery and my 2nd opinion took a couple month to get.

After 8 years of Anterior Fusion of L4-L5 due to Spondylolisthesis, my surgery is still doing well and still playing basketball and cycling. I never had any serious pain nor major relapse. His experience and technical expertise is impeccable and his bed side manner is outstanding. He is genuinely concern about his patient to a point where he still remembers some personal details of the patient's family after so many years.

I had my second microdiscectomy (both in 2017) in October of 217 and I would highly recommend Dr. Khurana to anyone that is in a situation where back surgery is necessary. I actually live in Texas so I had to fly to Marina Del Ray for the surgery.....arrived Thursday evening and flew back on Sunday afternoon. My previous surgeon had me in "their" rehab facility within a week(nice profit center!), whereas Dr. Khurana recommends no rehab other than walking.....the results are quite different.
