What People Say About Dr. Sushil Basra, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Up until 2018, I endured multiple episodes of acute and chronic back pain that had been kept at bay using conservative treatments. In the summer of 2018, I experienced severe, intractable, unbearable back pain. A review of the MRI Dr. Basra ordered revealed extensive herniation, disc bulging, stenosis and crushing of the nerves. He placed me on pain management, and then, after ruling out the effectiveness of all conservative treatments he performed a laminectomy with a triple lumbar fusion and bone grafts. For the first time in all these years, I am pain free in this area of my back. Dr. Basra is a compassionate, caring professional who demonstrates expert surgical skills. I highly recommend him to anyone who has concerns about having an unnecessary surgery. Performing back surgery is Dr. Basra's recommendation when all other treatments have been ruled out.

I'm a 45 year old woman who suffered from major/ chronic neck pain, until my consult with Dr. Basra. I was terrified of surgery. I couldn't bare the pain. He's very honest/ straight with you. He told me the choice was mine. That I could live with pain or have surgery. Fast forward, I had fusion( surgery) 1/16/19. I can honestly say I can feel the difference in my neck already after 6 wks. No more pain. No ?? after first post op appointment. I would highly recommend this surgery! Check him out!
