What our patients say
Dr. AmirNovin performed a life changing operation on me (Mar 18 11'). On my last MRI check-up regarding the tumor removal,I am still free of any sign of regrowth.As promised I am letting him know that I have completed my FIRST 1/2 Marathon. In the photo att'd are family members that shared not only in the concern of the surgery,but also in the joy and appreciation of what you accomplished for me Please make sure Dr. AmirNovin receives this. By the way, the staff has always been a class act.
I had a very large disc herniation and was in tremendous pain when I saw him. One of my family members was treated by him the year prior, so I had no hesitation. I was made to feel comfortable about my surgery because of a couple of factors. One was his philosophy in regards to very conservative surgical intervention. I knew that if he felt surgery was necessary, there were truly no other options. Another was his years in specialty and confidence in my treatment plan. His explanations and preoperative information were beyond thorough. My outcome was fantastic and I recommend him to those in need of a good surgical consultation! Thanks Dr. Lederhaus!
Dr. Disney always took the extra time to explain our options and when it came to the surgery, was very optimistic about the outcome. He is such a caring person, relates to you on a very human level and the results of the surgery were outstanding. I could not recommend a doctor more than this man. Do everything you can to secure his services, he is in a class all by himself!
Dr. Jose Rodriquez was the most kind doctor and man, a man of God and I do believe God does works with him. I had my operation last October 2012 which was10 months ago and I feel it was a miracle. I am doing so much better then I ever have. I was in a roll over accident in 2006 I have been through so many pain shots and so many other procedures. When I met Dr. Rodriquez he had all of the Mir 's he saw something in my neck that could have paralyzed me but the Dr. Said it must be done very soon and it was. Then he operated on my back at L4 L5and S5 and now I feel like a whole new person. He really cares, he is really smart and very kind !!!!! He saved my life so if you have any worrys about Dr. Rodriquez don't worry he is the best doctor you will ever find. He get 5 stars I would trust Dr. Jose Rodriquez with my life again without a doubt. THANK YOU DR. JOSE RODRIQUEZ YOU ARE MY HERO.
Upon seeing Dr. AmirNovin he was very direct and thorough. He explained to me I needed a procedure called ACDF (anterior cervical discectomy w/ fusion). I was hesitant and only wanted the best doing this procedure, someone with a lot of experience and patient referrals. I realized that I would be in good hands now that I had seen a few referrals from grateful patients. I said to myself I have to give this guy a go, if I was expecting 7000 surgeries under his belt then I would have to wait quite awhile as he only had a few hundred. But the truth is, I would rather have a young Dr. on the cutting edge of new practices. I put my life in Dr. AmirNovin hands and he didn't disappoint. My surgery was August 2, 2012 and I couldn't be more please with every aspect of the surgery.

I have had 3 different surgeries, spinal fusion and intra cranial 5th nerve decompression and recently gamma knife. Dr. Lederhaus is a wonderful doctor that really understands your pain and does everything he can to help alleviate it. I think he's the best and would recommend him to anyone:)
Neurosurgeons don't have a reputation for kindness as a rule. Dr. Rodriguez is the exception. What a wonderful man. So kind to me before the surgery, in the hospital and after. So smart and confident. I highly recommend Dr. Rodriguez and his office.
I had a brain tumor the size of an orange. I was terrified but Dr. Amir took me through the whole process step by step and made me feel safe. I am back to work and would recommend him highly.
On November 30, 2012 I had to have an urgent surgery done as soon as the doctors discovered, after performing an MRI that there was a tumor growing in my spine that was putting pressure on my vertebrae causing numbness from my stomach down to my legs. Dr. Ramin AmirNovin was willing to perform the surgery the same day my tumor was discovered. I believe he did an excellent job. If it weren't for him I think I would have been paralyzed. When I go to my follow ups he's very nice and explains everything clear enough for me to understand. I as well as my family are very thankful that I had the pleasure of having him perform my surgery.
In December of 2011, Dr. AmirNovin performed my C5-6 and C6-7 discectomy and fusion. Having never had a surgery prior to this, I was fearful and full of questions. From the initial consultation through the final follow up appointment, Dr. AmirNovin demonstrated patience, professionalism, compassion, and expertise. I had immediate confidence in him, which turned out to be well placed. I have been pain-free since and am grateful for his work. In the past year, I have referred two family members to him, both of whom have had fully successful lumbar surgeries and the same excellent care beforehand and afterward. I recommend his services and those of the efficient and helpful INI office staff wholeheartedly!
Receiving no relief from my epidurals for my back pain & sciatic nerve discomfort in my leg, Dr. AmirNovin was recommended to me. On my first visit, Dr. AmirNovin calmed all my fears about having back surgery to correct my problem with his detailed explanation of the procedure and the results I could expect. He took the time to assure all my concerns and questions! This is why I felt very confident in having this procedure done. Yes, I am pleased with the results, kudos not only to Dr. AmirNovin, but also his great staff for the care they give their patients.
After months of severe pain, Dr. AmirNovin's surgical expertise corrected my cervical discs. Knowledgeable, personable, wonderful cheerful bedside manner both before and after the procedure as well as during post op office visits. He was always eager to answer my questions. He calmed my fears about neurosurgery and I knew I was in good hands. He didn't even laugh at my neck brace even though I said it was ok to do so.
Doctor AmirNovin did a great job with my surgery. I was feeling better four days after surgery. Rehab wasn't even needed. I have recommended Dr. AmirNovin already to friends and family.
We had a very positive experience. Handling and post-operative recovery. Thanks Dr. Ramin and staff.
I am 81 years old relatively in good shape and health and lead a very active lifestyle. Several years ago I started experiencing severe pain in my leg which stopped me from being active. Dr. AmirNovin diagnosed my problem and suggested a surgery on my back. It went very smooth. I went back to play tennis. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Ramin AmirNovin.
I am thankful that Dr. Rodriguez was recommended to me by my pain doctor. Everything I took for granted had changed do to my back pain. I was not able to go on walks or play golf. Dr. Rodriguez gave me back a life free of pain – I am back on the golf course and walk a mile and a half every day (I am 73 years old). There are no words to describe my appreciation for Dr. Rodriguez.
After an airplane crash in the mountains, I was rescued & airlifted to a trauma center with a broken back. Images were showing bone fragments pushing well into the spinal canal threatening paralysis of the lower half of my body which was not good news particularly for us newlyweds. Consulting with the trauma team, we compiled a short list of top neurosurgeons in Los Angeles area which included Dr. Jose Rodriguez. When we contacted him, he assembled a surgical team and operated on me. I recovered quickly under Dr. Rodriguez' post operative care and physiotherapy. Within days, I started walking without any nerve damage and within a few months was swimming laps as I was doing before the injury. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Rodriguez and his outstanding team.
To me, he is the best doctor in the Universe. He did a beautiful job and saved my life. Very special to me. Very professional doctor. He came highly recommended by other doctors and I was very blessed to come across him.
Many "thank you's" and "kudos" to Dr. Disney for my 3rd surgery on 4/4/05. I am feeling so good Dr. Disney is a very caring and compassionate physician. He takes the time to listen to the patient. Thank you so much for helping me feel better.
