Patient Comments (11)

He is an excellent Spine Surgeon. I had an ACDF on my C4-6. I have no pain, except wearing a collar for 3 months which is a necessary nuisance. I would recommend him and his staff highly. I had my surgery on Aug. 7th and only took a narcotic for 3 days.

Dr Shridharani is a kind, caring and compassionate surgeon. He operated on my neck and I'm doing extremely well. Prior to surgery I had debilitating pain, now I'm back to work and pain free. I would highly recommend him!
