Dr. Udani is the best.

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.

He is a miracle doctor!

Bravo to Dr. Vikram Udani (Neurosurgery), who was recognized by a patient’s loved one on Google: “He is a miracle doctor! He finds the actual reason for pain and gets to the bottom of it. My boyfriend’s mother has been suffering since 2004 in her neck and back. He was able to catch it as soon as she met him!”


Attentiveness, genuine care and expertise

“Dr. Udani is an incredible surgeon that I trust with my life. His attentiveness, genuine care, and expertise is simply unmatched. I could not recommend him enough to anyone else who has to experience such unfortunate situations. In such a terrifying, uneasy, and life-threatening time in my life, Dr. Udani managed to make me feel so comforted and cared for. Thank you so much, you’re a blessing!”

Thanks for keeping me alive

Hi Dr. Udani,

Thank you for performing my two neck surgeries. You are an awesome doctor! Thanks for keeping me alive and for being there in my time of need!

Your friend,



Back to normal again

God has blessed you in so many ways already. This was the first time I really got correct treatment without a really long wait. I am finally back to “normal” again.


Taking such good care of me

Thank you for taking such good care of me during a most challenging season of my life. Please express my appreciation also to Ashley for her sensitivity to my situation. Thank you again!”


A true friend when I needed it the most

Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your kind care of my father in the hospital and your expert advice along the way. Objectivity is difficult when it’s your own dad and your patience and accessibility were appreciated by my entire family at a difficult time. My dad has woken up after 2 weeks of acupuncture and herbal therapy, is now speaking sentences and is weak, but moving all extremities. I’m not sure how much is due to the eastern medicine, but it probably is not hurting. He will have memory issues, but he recognizes family. Thanks again for being a true friend when I needed it the most!


No more numbness and every day I feel better

I just really have to tell you how very thankful I am form the bottom of my heart! I believe everything happened to make sure I got the best surgeon and I will be eternally grateful for all you did for me. I cam into the hospital with my whole body going numb and even trouble walking and so full of fear and you fixed me up just like you said you would. No more numbness and every day I feel better! So excited about my full recovery. No words can say how much I appreciate what you did for me! Thank you, I am more than grateful!


Pain-free surgery

I cannot thank you enough for the pain-free surgery. Mentally, I was prepared but fortunately it was not a debilitating experience. My wife and I felt you had very competent hands and you proved us correct. Thank you Ashley and your staff for a wonderful conclusion.


Your knowledge and skills are just amazing!

Thank you so much for doing such an excellent job on my mom’s surgery! I felt at ease with confidence in you the first time we met. We put her in your hands and you were so wonderful! I’m so grateful to you, there just aren’t enough words! Your knowledge and skills are just amazing! We are in awe of you really! My mom is healing well and less loopy each day. I’m sure she’ll be back to full speed very soon.


Lucky to have gotten someone as experienced and talented

I just wanted to say thank you for being so professional and for the success of my surgery. I never

expected to need a neurosurgeon but I was lucky to have gotten someone as experienced and talented as you. I really appreciate your hard work and was amazed that I could actually walk from the ICU ward to the trauma ward one day after surgery with no pain. Thanks to your hands and God’s grace. I know I will have more time to enjoy life.


You made me feel at ease when I was scared

It’s impossible for my family and I to thank you enough for fixing my back! I don’t think I have ever had a doctor that was so caring and wonderful! You didn’t have to take me on-but you did and you made me feel at ease when I was scared.


Because of you I feel much better…

Because of you I fell much better and am able to have full use of my hands. The spinal surgery was a success. Thank you so very much.”


You are a lifesaver.

Thanks a lot for everything. You are a life saver. So far so good.”


I really felt comfortable going into this surgery

I really felt comfortable going into this surgery and you even put my husband at ease. You were honest about what to expect and there were no surprises ever. Thank you for the direct approach and compassionate care you provided.


Thank you for saving my life and my job.

Thank you for saving my life and my job. I’m doing very well and working very hard!


Your remarkable skills saved me again

I can’t thank you enough for giving me back my life. Your remarkable skills saved me again I God bless you and your lovely family.


Thank you for returning my fun-loving husband

It’s been six months since you performed a small miracle. When my husband first went to you in November 2013, he was in overwhelming pain. Every day was torture and by the end of the work day, he simply sat in the recliner with a heating pad – nothing left in the tank. His back was so painful that a simple thing like taking the dogs for a walk was out of the question.

At our first consultation, you spelled out everything and quickly put us at ease. That wasn’t a simple task, since back surgery is pretty much the last thing anyone wants to face. You carefully explained the procedure, what it would and would not do. In detail, you outlined what we could expect after surgery starting with day one.

Everything you said would happened during the process occurred exactly the way you said it would. As a bonus, we had Ashley, a wonder at hand-holding and soothing this worried wife. She was professional, efficient and compassionate in answering questions and providing excellent support as Nick’s back improved.

Next year we will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. I’m excited to tell you that we’re planning to celebrate with a trip to Italy–a trip we didn’t think we would be able take. Because of your amazing care, Nick will be strolling down the cobblestone streets with me. Thank you for returning my fun-loving husband.

Nick is enjoying life. He’s golfing, fishing, and gardening. Our three sons thank you as well, for returning their active father. Bandit and Jersey, our dogs, now get a regular walk.

You are a blessing, Dr. Udani, and we wish you continued success, restoring health and happiness to other families.
