Spinal Surgery

After 10 back surgeries with no success, I was referred to Dr Anand. He was able to fix my back where today, after 3 years, I have no pain in it. I am very happy with the results of his surgery! Now today, I am facing neck surgery and he is the one I am going to trust to fix it

Lower Back Procedure

Cronic lower back pain from L3-L4 , L-5 and S-1Dr. Anand performed T-lift and fusion 10-2013. My pain stayed at hospital! I had a procedure in 02-2013 by another provider that did not cure my issues at all, needless to say I have my life back. Best wishes to you in your quest to get your life back.

Excellent Surgeon

I had a complex scoliosis surgery performed by Dr. Anand and I honestly believe that no one else would have been capable of such a serious surgery. He is extremely gifted.
