"Dr. Makhni is a gifted spine surgeon, with a superior intellect. He operates out of the Brigham using an advanced computer-guided system and with a superb team of professionals. He corrected a 12mm spondylolisthesis at L4-L5 for me with a laminectomy and instrumented fusion in March, 2022. The surgery was a complete success - I was up and walking around my hospital floor the evening after my operation, having only incision pain. Now, five months post-surgery, I continue to do extremely well and am grateful to be relieved of all the leg pain and limp I had once thought permanent. I was able to consult with many of the country's best surgeons at the best hospitals before choosing Dr. Makhni. I know spinal surgery is frightening, I've had fusion twice, and as a decades long back patient I highly recommend Dr. Makhni. "

"He is a coward and not helpful and possibly did not do a surgery that helped me at all. He left hardware in my body and wouldn't help me in the future because he stated that "I had too much hardware". I had a rod and two screws in my spine and refused to help me with further pain. He is careless and not helpful or caring. Don't waste your time trusting him because he will leave you when he can't figure it out. It's pathetic. He left me in much pain without any clarification."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
