Magical man

I just had my staples removed by Dr. Rustamzadeh for my L1/l2 stenosis repair. The surgery is healed up and the debilitating symptoms in my legs, back, & hips are completely gone! The nurses, clerical staff and anathesiaologist all raved about him before and after my surgery, and you can add me to that list. This is the third spine surgery I had with Dr. Rustamzadeh: he repaired a lumbar stenosis back in 2014, and repaired three badly staph-damaged lumbar vertebrae from a botched lumbar decompression operation in 2008 (by another surgeon) in an 8-hr operation in 2015. I was in considerable pain for 7 years and was taking 5 percocets a day. After that lengthy repair I went down to ½ a day, and sometimes none. Rustamzadeh does what he says and says what he does. He diagnosed my problems correctly every time, said that he could fix them, and then proceeded to do just that. The man is a miracle worker!


Really saved my life, the best Spine Dr. ever I rate him a 5+

neck surgery

I had a broken vertebrae (C2), that was misdiagnosed at the emergency room as “stable”, although I could feel a loose bone that did not seem to be there before. Dr. Rustamzadeh reviewed my CT scan on Dec 31, spotted the issue immediately, he saw me Jan 2 in spite of a busy schedule, and 8 days later performed a fusion (C2-C3) . Everything went well. Although I am not qualified to judge his work especially just 1 month after surgery, several things tell me that I was fortunate to be directed to Dr. R. by my worker comp insurance. The personnel of the hospital seemed to have a very positive reaction when they learned who did my surgery. Dr. R. is quite well known there and respected. Dr.R. is quite efficient, straight to the point, a keen sense of time management yet careful to explain & answer questions. His administrative staff is helpful and welcoming.

He Saved my life. Outstanding Doctor/Surgeon

Omg! What a great doctor/Surgeon he is. Suffering from spinal pain for over 2 years that no other doctors were able to find. Had been to several doctors, had so many MRIs done but no one was able to determine my problem. Dr Rustamzadeh is literally a God for me. My life savor. Many thanks to him and his wonderful staff!!!

Dr. Rustamzadeh has made an indelible impression on me and my family members.A Medical Professional: Dr. Rustamzadeh is a neurosurgeon who has a great reputation as an outstanding surgeon and is widely known far beyond the boundaries of Silicon Valley. After receiving positive feedback about him from varied medical professionals, my family and I elected to have my surgery (ACDF) performed by him. After the surgery, we realized that we couldn't have made a better decision.Bottom Line: Dr. Rustamzadeh is an amazing exceptionally gifted surgeon! The Human Aura:As Dr. Rustamzadeh's patient, I had an outstanding experience beginning with the initial consultation, all the way to my post-op checkup in his office. During the first consultation, he told me I had the option to get a shot to cope with my pain; or I could choose to have surgery. He patiently explained the details of my condition and gave me his prognosis; he answered all the questions my wife and I had. Unlike most doctors, he did not rush us or brush off any of our concerns. He also made it clear that we should take our time to think it over before I opted for surgery.On the day of surgery, on my way to the restroom, I ran into him an hour prior to being taken to the Operating Room. His bright, cheerful acknowledgment of my presence infused me with confidence; I had the warm comforting reassurance that I was definitely in the hands of a surgeon who cares; he did not view me as just another case for surgery. Dr. Rustamzadeh's personality, demeanor, and brief lighthearted conversation with me at that time had the amazing effect of replacing my anxiety with a peace and calm that comes from knowing that all will be well.Bottom Line: Dr. Rustamzadeh is charismatic and compassionate. A Stakeholder:Even after successfully completing a surgery, Dr. Rustamzadeh remains fully involved in his patient’s care. After I had been transferred from the recovery room to my own room in the hospital, Dr. Rustamzadeh (who was scheduled to perform more surgeries that day) called the nurse more than once to check on the status of my recovery and to verify that all medications were being administered appropriately. The nurse told my wife that despite his busy schedule, Dr. Rustamzadeh consistently calls for post-op updates on his patients instead of waiting to hear from her in case there is an issue. Bottom Line: Dr. Rustamzadeh values each patient as an important individual, not just another "case".A Leader: A great leader maintains a great team. Dr. Rustamzadeh holds himself to high standards, and his team of highly skilled professionals lives up to the same. In the pre-op room, I was impressed by the kindness, compassion, and thorough professionalism of all his team members.Dr. Rustamzadeh is an unassuming, humble, awe-inspiring highly skilled neurosurgeon.Dr. Rustamzadeh's Office Staff Nicole Saito:Dr. Rustamzadeh's assistant, Nicole Saito, efficiently handled the messages I left with her. I was pleased with her attention to detail in her e mail responses. Pleasant, polite, and friendly, Nicole seems to be a very knowledgeable and experienced medical assistant. It was a pleasure to interact with her while I was under Dr. Rustamzadeh's care.Rosario, who does not work directly for Dr. Rustomzadeh, often answered the phone. She has excellent telephone etiquette; it was always a delight to speak to her.

Since may of 2015, I had been experiencing weakness and numbness in both legs and numbness in two fingers in my left hand as a result of carpal tunnel.. I was diagnosed with 3 ruptured disc in my neck and had a similar issue my back causing pressure against spinal cord. In December of 2015, I had surgery on my neck and have to say Dr. R was amazing. The recovery process went very well in which I was back to work in two months. I then proceeded to have back and hand surgery October of 2016, which has also went very well. I felt a difference on the weakness of my legs within a few days after the procedure. If you are someone who is experiencing similar issues, I strongly recommend you contacting his office.
