Best spine surgeon in Phoenix

Dr. Salari has taken care of me, my son, and friends of ours. We have only great things to say about him, his PA Nick, and his staff. Dr. Salari takes the time to explain the issue and the reason for the problem. He also prepared us on what to expect after the surgery. The results have been fantastic.

Endoscopic discectomy

Dr. Salari is excellent. He performed an "endoscopic discectomy" for a disc herniation I had in my lower back. I had immediate relief of back and right leg pain. I was discharged home the same day and have not needed any pain medication. My wife can't even see the incision. Incredible team.

Excellent doctor

I got a recommendation to this doctor and Dr. Anthony Yeung from 2 friends 2 years ago after suffering with severe sciatica for 10 years. Dr. Salari and the entire staff was so kind and efficient. I live 6 hours from the office and they offered me an alternative of sending all my records for an evaluation so I would have to just come for preop and treatment. I wanted to meet them 1st, though. I had to have a little more surgery because I had waited too long but it was totally successful unlike other friends who still have pain. When my husband started having problems this year that got really painful, we didn't even bother calling other doctors our orthopedist recommended. He was in and out in 1 day and totally pain free since. They even called the house for 1 of the follow ups so we wouldn't have to drive the 6 hours 1 way. Nick, Dr. Salari's PA always returns calls if the doctor can't. He is very knowledgeable too . Just love the entire office staff too. Excellent care, excellent staff, and most excellent surgeons and physician assistants

Best spine surgeon

Dr. Salari and his staff are fantastic. Top notch. From the person answering the telephone to the front office staff, xray, scheduling, and his PA, Nick... everyone is friendly, knowledgable, and very helpful. Dr. Salari is kind and caring, and an amazing surgeon. I would know. I had prior spine surgery. The recovery was long and the after care was not helpful. I needed surgery again on my neck and after reading reviews, I visited with Dr. Salari. He explained what was going on in detail. He took extra time to answer my questions and those of my family. He had to revise a part of the prior surgery. I was pain free right after the surgery. I did have many questions after the surgery and had little trouble getting them answered. The staff has been wonderful in the follow up visits. I would highly recommend DISC and Dr. Salari.

Dr. Nima Salari is fantastic.

Dr. Salari has been wonderful. It only took 5 days from the time I called the doctors office and was able to talk to Dr. Salari that I had my surgery. The surgery was difficult but very successful and I have been pain free for 5 months.. Dr. Salari and his surgical staff plus the DISC office were very professional individuals who were also extremely compassionate. I couldn't of had a better experience. For anyone with back pain do not be afraid to see Dr. Salari.. I highly recommend him.
