I was referred to Dr. Yanni about a year ago when pain management could no longer control my chronic spondylolysis lower back pain. The doctor reviewed my records and history to ensure all treatment options had been exhausted. The doctor discussed surgical options and suggested getting second opinions. When second opinions reinforced the severity of my condition, I chose Dr. Yanni for his expertise and knowledge. After surgery, the doctor gave me guidelines to adhere to and checked on me via regular visits. From tremendous care, to following instructions given to me, today I am totally pain free. Thank you Dr. Yanni!
Dr. Yanni is an amazing and extremely talented neurosurgeon. I had suffered for years with numbness and tingling in my right arm, and also upper back/neck pain. I was not aware that I had any problems in my neck as I had been told by a previous doctor that it was probably a carpel tunnel issue caused by decades of computer usage. An MRI confirmed that I had a degenerative C5-C6 disc, disc bulge, stenosis, and bone spurs. My initial consultation with Dr. Yanni gave me much hope and optimism for a better quality of life. He explained the surgical option along with risks, complications, and expected outcomes. Needless to say I had a high level of anxiety regarding the idea of neck surgery. After reviewing my options, we decided that my best outcome would come from a C5-C6 diskectomy and fusion. Dr Yanni explained in detail the procedure with possible risks, complications, and possible outcomes. For every risk or complication he told me his plan of action to mitigate or correct all possibilities. He discussed the level of recovery to expect noting that the decades of damage may not be able to be reversed completely and to expect time to allow for recovery and easement of my extensive symptoms. I went into surgery knowing that I had the best possible surgeon taking care of me. Needless to say my surgery was a 110% success! I was not even out of recovery when I had complete and normal feeling in my arm. I had zero complications, and a much easier than expected recovery, and have never felt better. I have heard a lot of horror stories from other people that have had the same procedure by other doctors and I know I have Dr. Yanni to thank for my amazing results. I would recommend anyone needing a neurosurgeon to do yourself a favor and only trust Dr. Yanni with your life. I am very thankful for a neurosurgeon like him.
Amazing surgeon. Immediate relief of all pain. Standing and walking within hours. So happy I had to restrain myself from movement. Thought my legs may have been gone....Nobody could have tried harder to stand or walk...No physical therapy...No rehab. The signals were not getting through. I needed a surgeon to relieve the pressure on my spine from a ruptured disc. Dr. Yanni was chief of spinal surgery at U.C.I. there is some experience. Thank GOD for his hands and skill.
