in Bonney Lake, WA |
I'm a 29 year old male who has experienced lower back pain for the past 7-8 years. Over this time period I have tried every non surgical option available with no success. When sciatic pain set in, I knew I needed to explore surgical options. After consulting 3 separate opinions from surgeons about my condition, I chose Dr. Sinha to perform my laminectomy/discectomy at L4/L5. Besides getting married and having my son it was the best decision I've made in my life. 100% recommend him and his staff.
Great, doctor that is really good at what he does, he made me completely comfortable and used words i could easily understand

I went to the initial appointment afraid that a surgeon would naturally promote surgery so I was pretty skeptical regarding his recommendation (and told him so...). His manner was so sincere and his explanations so convincing that I agreed to the surgery. Very glad I did! He quite literally gave me back my life. My only regret is that I didn't act on the referral sooner.

Dr. Sinha was not only a blessing but I feel he saved my life from chronic pain. If I hadn't seen him I would've never known I had Klippel-Feil Syndrome. It's what was causing all the pain. 2 neck surgeries and 1 low back and I literally feel like I have a brand new body. I will never be able to thank Dr. Sinha enough. I would recommend him to anyone and I have. The entire staff is also very professional and very friendly. Thank you Dr. Sinha and staff.

Dr. Sinha is highly professional. In addition he has kept me completely informed of every possible outcome and earned my full trust and respect as my doctor and surgeon. Him and his office are my top recommendation to anyone I know who needs spinal care.

Dr Sinha was the best surgeon I have ever had. He saved me from ending up in a wheelchair. His PA David is also excellent and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs help with back problems.

i had seen doctors in the past and really was worried about surgery but after see dr sinha i knew i was really for him to help me
in Redmond, WA |
I felt respected and listened to when I worked with Dr. Sinha. I appreciated that he didn't push me in any way towards his own agenda but asked what I was looking for, outcome wise. He was very professional but at the same time easy to talk with. He never seemed to talk over my head and put his thoughts into words a non-doctor like myself could understand.
in Redmond, WA |
I trusted Dr. Sinha going into my neck surgery. He was intelligent & highly recommended. However, I woke up from my surgery with a new extreme pain in my left thumb. Most of a year later, my thumb is numb, as is most of my left arm. After 3 months of physical therapy my right arm was stuck at 50% strength. The worst part is he really didn't care. He said it was a nerve impingement and would go away. Wrong. I requested nerve testing. He eagerly agreed and said I'd be contacted, but I never was.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Sinha saved my life! I wouldn't be walking today if he hadn't been there for me. He is kind, caring, and without a doubt the best surgeon ever. I am forever grateful for his dedication, skill, and compassion!

For surgery to be the right answer for you, we believe that all other options should be explored before making this decision. At APEX, we believe in operating with minimally invasive techniques before pursuing more drastic measures. These techniques are much quicker to recover from and are far less tolling on the patient. That being said when the situation calls for it we will operate using the most effective treatment for the condition. Our team will walk you through these procedures every step of the way. We pride ourselves in preparedness and attention to detail for every patient.
