I needed major back surgery for an injury I sustained. Dr Sinkov was my treating doctor. As this was a major surgery I wanted to have the best person do it. We have all have heard the stories of complications after back surgery. I looked in Tuffs Medical, Mass general and several other major hospitals. Every Dr nurse and physical therapist all said Dr Sinkov was the only one that they would have perform surgery on their back. I am so happy I listened to them. He's fantastic! Best decision yet!

Dr. Vladimir Sinkov is amazing. I have a congenital deteriorating spine. This is my third spinal surgery, and it went much better than with the previous surgeon. Typical recovery is 2-3 days. On the morning after surgery, I woke up with a pain level of 1 with NO pain meds. Upon waking up, I also have more feeling in my legs than I have in several years. The pain eventually did return, but only after I started exercising. I was successfully discharged on the day after surgery. Dr. Sinkov al

I had been in pain for over 10 years trying to find an alternative to spinal fusion. I have tried everything possible to tolerate the pain. Disc replacement surgery was fairly new in NH and not many patients had it done in the US through their insurance . As the FDA approved the surgery on two levels, I contacted Dr. Sinkov who was innovating and a leader with the surgery. I was nervous being his first candidate. What a great surgeon, very professional and thorough. It’s been 3 great years.

I have been suffering with back pain for 20 years. I met Dr. Sinkov and was at the end of my rope. He spent a great deal of time my answering all my questions, never rushing. I was impressed with his explanations and bedside manner. He recommended a one level minimally invasive surgery called TLIF technique. I left the hospital the next day and walked 10,000 steps within the first week. He found a nerve compression no one saw for 20 years! Thank you, Dr. Sinkov! ~Susan Sheehy

Dr. Sinkov is very meticulous about his patients care, exams and does not rush to surgery. He uses all available options before he suggest surgery. He listened to my concerns, answered all my questions and takes into account any other health issues that may be taking a toll with you. I have met other patients and friends of patients whom have been cared for by Dr. Sinkov and they all have the same professional opinion of him. Thanks your excellent medical care and professionalism.

I was experiencing severe neck pain with muscle spasms. Dr. Sinkov performed a cervical fusion. At three months, I was back to playing golf & tennis. He gave me back my life. I had two presurgery consults with Dr. Sinkov-he answered all of my questions patiently and thoroughly. I knew that I chose the right surgeon!

Dr. Sinkov was extremely professional, thorough and kind throughout the entire process. He took every precaution necessary to try to prevent any complications and/or possible infections pre- and post- surgery. The surgery was a scary undertaking for me, because it was on my cervical spine, but Dr. Sinkov was THE BEST! If I had to have another similar surgery I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Dr. Sinkov was highly recommended by two other surgeons consulted for secondary opinions. His training, specific skills set, professionalism, quiet, thoughtful and gentle approach to reviewing my films, outlining my surgical options and answering questions I had were notable, detailed and reassuring. Nursing staff complimented to me his attention to detail, protocol and safety precautions.

Dr Sinkov is one of three specialists that I have seen for my neck. He was highly recommended to me by Dr Murthi- who had wanted a skilled second opinion on my neck. Well, I waited for an hour and 30 minutes, but it was worth it. It was the last piece to this puzzle that is my neck problem. I’ve done everything I can do, and surgery has been recommended. I definitely trust Dr Sinkov. His professionalism and bedside manner is absolutely fantastic. NH Orthopædic is the ONLY place I will go.

I was in for serious back injury. Although Dr. Sinkov recommended back surgery, he did not push the surgery. He listened to my concerns, expressed his concerns and connected with my overall thoughts for a recovery plan. He was extremely knowledgeable and caring. I found him to be dedicated to me as a patient.
