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.
