Dr. Talwar's Care Philosophy

Vikram Talwar, M.D. is a fellowship trained and board certified orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in the treatment of spinal conditions in pediatric, adult and elderly patients with an emphasis on the use of minimally invasive techniques. He treats pediatric deformities such as scoliosis, traumatic injuries such as vertebral fractures, disc herniations, and degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis and disc degeneration. Dr. Talwar's approach is conservative with surgery being the option after all other treatments have been discussed and/ or tried. He offers the best advancements in spine surgery for patients with degenerative disease of the spine, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, and other conditions. Dr. Talwar has recently built a new office in Danville, California and created a unique comfortable office to offer his patients the most focused, private and calming environment possible. He has numerous spine models and computers in each exam room to visually educate each patient about their condition(s) affecting their spine. His staff engages personally with patients and will make sure patients have a cell phone number to easily correspond with the staff for important issues.

Patient Comments (2)
in Livermore, CA |
Dr. Talwar has been my spine orthopedic surgeon for over 10 years. He is an excellent surgeon and diagnostition. Nine years ago he preformed an Anterior / Posterior fusion of S1 to L3 and greatly relieved my pain and restored much of my lost range of motion. His pre- and post surgical care is one reason that I have been able to enjoy a much improved quality of life. I would encourage anyone to seek his care for issues related to the spine.
