Talented neurosurgeon

When it comes to neurosurgery, I would see Dr. Sanan without a doubt. Because of his excellent surgery skills, the nerve pain on my legs was just gone. I can walk normally again. Thank you Dr. Sanan and his staff.

surgery January 2017

initial appt. was comforting, informative, not rushed, dr. was prepared with my Mri brought up. answered all questions, was not offended with our research on procedure, very knowledgeable but spoke in terms we could understand, followthru was excellent even over holiday. Called on phone after reviewing extra xrays, surgery date was set. surgery day was well organized to eliminate any stress. met all surgical team beforehand. went well. only negative, no room was ready after recovery, so remained in recovery area quite long. Dr. checked on me and reported to husband several times to assure him I was ok and what the hold up was.
