Excellent Caring, Effective Doctor
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sassan Keshavarzi - Posted on July 18th, 2019
I went to Dr. Keshavarzi with severe sciatica that had persisted for two years. I had tried physical therapy, chiropractors, neurologists, cortisone shots, medications, and acupuncture. Nothing worked. He looked at my MRI and noticed a bone pressing on my nerve that was causing the pain. He discussed options with me and decided to perform minimally invasive surgery to cut off that piece of bone. I had a one inch scar, and walked out of the recovery room pain-free. The sciatica never returned. I highly recommend Dr. Keshavarzi because he was able to relieve my pain in the most minimally invasive way. He really cares about his patients and is an excellent doctor.
Kind of Surgeon we all want

I have had chronic pain my whole adult life. Pain streaming down my leg into my foot that was debilitating. When we decided on Cleveland Clinic the reputation was superior. Until I met Dr. Keshavarzi and his PA Chelsea. He is an amazing surgeon , my surgery was extensive 8 screws , 2 rods...I am out of pain , recovering well and have my life back. Dr and his PA are personable , caring and spend time to make sure you understand everything! I would definitely recommend this surgeon “NEURO SURGEON” top in his field , only because of the results!

Dr. Keshavarzi is truly a great and compassionate surgeon. He recently took care of a seriously bothersome herniated disc and had me on my feet and back to normal in no time. He is very confident and calming when explaining the procedure and it’s risks. His bedside manner and attention to me and my concerned wife were beyond our expectations. Finally, I would highly recommend Dr.Keshavarzi for any neurological surgery that he might advise.
