"Dr. Udani is an amazing surgeon! He just did surgery to fix some fairly severe stenosis, and a compression fracture in my spine. I went home same-day, and I have had zero nerve pain since I came out of anesthesia. He is kind, compassionate, and very thorough; and the same can be said for his entire staff. I would definitely recommend Dr. Udani to anyone who is in need of spinal surgery of any kind."

"Dr. Udani, along with his staff (Ashley, Jessica & Cassie) took outstanding care of me each step of the way. I had many questions before my spinal surgery; Dr. Udani really listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. Moreover, my spinal surgery was a success so I am very grateful for the positive outcome. I would definitely recommend Dr. Udani as a neurosurgeon to all my family and friends!!"

"Dr. Vikram Udani is by far one of the best neurosurgeons in San Diego California. Over a year ago I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation 1. Chiari Malformation is a condition in which there is a herniation of brain tissue that protrude into the spine, this disease causes all types of neurological problems. Extreme migraines and loss of balance is just a couple of symptoms Chiari Causes. During my first appointment with doctor Udani, I was told I would need decompression surgery of the skull. At first I was terrified, I expressed my concerns to him and was extremely emotional. Dr Udani, and his staff, Ashley and Jessica, were able to calm me down and explain the benefits of having this particular surgery. After speaking with Dr Udani and his team I decided to go through with the surgery. I could honestly say, that was the best decision I've ever made in my life. I had my surgery on September 17 2021. Since then, I've noticed my symptoms improving within a week after having surgery. Dr. ...
Udani saved my life. He has such compassion and knowledge, he is kind hearted and extremely skilled at his profession. There is a YouTube video of a man who had a serious brain injury and needed surgery asap, he was told he would not be able to walk. Dr Udani was the neurosurgeons who preformed the young man's surgery. To everyone surprise the young man with the brain injury was able to walk again. Dr Udani is the best. If you are looking for a top notch neurosurgeon, Dr Udani is the Surgeon you need to seek. "

"I had neck surgery last year by another surgeon that totally messed me up. I was in constant pain running down both of my arms. I saw Dr. Udani as my last hope after nothing was helping. He took me in for another surgery after clearly explaining that it may not work. Not only did it work, but I feel better than ever. I finally feel like I've recovered from this problem and am eternally grateful to Dr. Udani."
