excellent surgeon with great attitude

Dr. Nazerali did a great job fixing my hernias. He was very caring and sincere though the whole process and the follow up after the surgery. I highly recommend him.

Gentle and Caring

I was quite beside myself when I learned of the complexity of the surgical procedure I was to undergo. Dr. Nazerali took the time to explain the various options available to accomplish what was required. He made sure I understood the risks of complications and also the benefits that the surgery would provide for me. He made it very clear what I was to do pre and post surgery to make it a complete success. He talked to me in language that I could understand. His work is impeccable!

Abdominal reconstruction

Dr. Nazerali and his team were tremendous, I had abdominal reconstruction earlier this year. My case was so severe that my local physicians sent me to Stanford where I met Dr. Nazerali. His skill at diagnosing my situation and his excellent surgical technique probably saved my life. Thank you Dr. Nazerali for the excellent care.

Great Surgeon with a Great Result!

I had a very complex reconstruction using VRAM flap technique to reconstruct my pelvic floor after a rectum resection. Dr. Nazerali was highly recommended by a Southern California Plastic Surgeon and it was a great recommendation. Great office manners and the result is nothing less than miraculous. I have made a complete return to heavy duty spin classes and could not be happier with the results or his follow up.
