Dr Hannani preformed my 3 level cervical fusion on February 27, 2019. From the moment I woke up I felt better than I had in years. I am at the 6th month mark and continue to improve. Thank you Dr Hannani.

I had a back surgery with Dr Hannani and I am so glad I went through with it. My pain was gone as soon as I woke up from surgery and the healing process has been great. Thank you Doctor for everything.

FELLOWSHIP-TRAINED SPINE SURGEON

Dr. Hannani completed his medical school and orthopedic residency program at UCLA School of Medicine [ranked in top ten nationally by US News for Best Medical Schools in Surgery and Research [US News Rankings]; he completed a fellowship training in spinal surgery with renown orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rick Delamarter.

ENDOSCOPIC/MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY

Dr. Hannani is one of few spine surgeons who performs awake endoscopic surgery with patients observing and immediately confirming the resolution of their pain while on the operating room table. Dr. Hannani also performs traditional surgery for cases where minimally invasive surgery would not be as effective.

Patients discussing surgical experience:

ENDOSCOPIC DISCECTOMY:
Back surgery can be done with the patient awake and a few hours of recovery; depending on the pathology, endoscopic discectomy can provide significant pain relief while the patient is in the surgery room and watches her own surgery live on the monitors.

CERVICAL FUSION:
Designed for patients with neck/arm pain, disc material which is compressing the nerve and causing pain is removed and replaced. We can use a fusion procedure or disc replacement with similar improvement in pain.
