Dr Beasley is quite nice but also straight to the point. She takes the time to explain things and make sure you understand your procedure or treatment plan. Her staff if also very nice and accomodating. Plus, you can make yourself a pretty stellar coffee while you wait in the waiting room. - Kell OnEarth
I went to see Dr. Beasley for a third opinion after seeing two orthopedic doctors who wanted to rush me in for surgery. One of the surgeons recommended an experimental surgery - doing my own research and asking questions, this would have been a dangerous option for my circumstance. I appreciated Dr. Beasleyís conservative approach to addressing my previously failed spinal fusion before we finally determined that surgery was the way to go. Sheís a brilliant woman with an outstanding staff (especially Christie and Toni). They took excellent care of me, listened to my concerns with interest, answered all my questions thoroughly, and responded every time I called almost immediately. - Amy Lorenz
Excellent surgeon and so far lumbar fusion is doing well at the 60 day mark. Almost zero pain issues and Iím walking miles every day. - Mark Scott
Se Nelson has a rare combination of Incredible talent and compassionate bedside manner. I feel so blessed he was available to do my surgery. - Victoria Thompson
I would have a different life, not a good one, without the help of Dr. Nelson. His treatment, his attention to detail, his follow up and his empathy have enabled me to continue to live a normal life. i will always be eternally grateful to him and to his staff and continue to recommend him to everyone that I know.Bravo Dr. Nelson!!!! - S.K
Dr. Nelson and staff have been great care givers. There are lots of choices and I feel confident that I found the best surgeon for spinal surgery. - K.L
Dr. Nanny is very good at explaining everything. I really liked and trusted the doctors recommendations. The receptionist seemed very argument i’ve to me and wasn’t very nice at times. She said she told me to bring a copy of the MRI but I don’t remember her telling me that. - C.G

I always have a good experience when I come in. - C.D
I canít say how happy I am with my procedure and Dr V. I feel better than I have in ages. The office staff and Eric have been fantastic to work with and I appreciate their personal touch - T.D
Prior to my back surgery I was in extreme discomfort with pain radiating down legs periodically. Dr Rajpal after thorough discussion helped the decision to have a fourth fusion in my lower back. It was the right choice and with the right surgeon as post surgery I am pain free with no radiating pain. I was able to get back to part time and then full time work much quicker than the previous three surgeries. No pain meds needed 6 days post surgery. If another surgery is needed in the future it is a no brainer who the choice is. Pre surgery goal of pain free work for the next five years is well underway - Roderic Rieman
Post surgery 1 year follow up - T.S
Iím extremely happy with the results of my lumbar fusion by Dr. Rajpal. Itís been a year since surgery and after years of pain Iíve been completely pain free for months. - Janice Merriman
My experience with Dr. Rajpal was excellent. I would recommend him if you are looking at any spine surgery. - Dennis Tran
Everything was smooth as silk!!! Love this group of professionals...each and everyone is helpful, courteous, kind, and there for me!!! - M.J
Dr. Nelson, Mike, Lady, Lyriel and the rest of the staff are nothing short of phenomenal. I was referred to them by a current patient and I can now see why. Dr. Nelson and Mike have a great bedside manner. Communication was wonderful, from in person meetings, to zoom like meetings, to the surgery itself--absolutely fabulous. I was sooo worried about going in for a back surgery and they made it seem like I had just broken a nail..Very calming presence because they know what they are doing. - D.P
Everyone was just amazing best care I’ve ever had and I’ve been and seen lots of doctor and have been to too many hospitals. Excellent care !!! Very impressed !! Thank you so much ! - T.S
My experience with Dr. Villavicencio was wonderful. I now live a virtually pain free life. I consider this a testament to his skills. Once again I can do all the activities I had become unable to do. Even a 10 minute walk around the neighborhood was impossible prior to my surgery. I was always treated with respect and all questions were welcome and answered. Dr. Vís staff, including Eric and Alex and the office staff - everyone - were great. - L.M
I am SO grateful and appreciative of BNSís care for many years. I wrote a letter to detail my experiences and my grateful thoughts a few years ago. Please feel free to share this letter with anyone you chose. I will always remember the professionalism and attention/advice I received specific to my life style and my medical issues. - Christie Dudley
I am extremely happy with the results of my surgery and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. V and his team. - Jane Carlough Meline
We are very pleased with the results of my surgery. My strength in my arms have improved and I can write better. We love doctor Rajpal, Trent & all the staff is friendly. - B.D
I have degenerative disk disease in my lower back. I have had five surgeries since 2005, my most recent surgery in March 2020 fused my entire lumbar spine. My surgeon was dr Villavicencio and he did a wonderful job on my back; I am free of pain for most of my activities already. - D.B
Very good, excellent care and a good experience every time. - L.C
I was referred to Dr. Rajpal earlier this year, after enduring nerve issues that did not fully resolve from mid to later 2019, and reviewing MRI results with my orthoped. I was welcomed into their office and after doing a thorough exam, gathering my history, and reviewing my imaging, it was decided that surgery was my best option (multi-level ACDF C5-C7). I was scheduled for surgery to occur a couple months later, however that date ended up being moved up slightly due to concerns over Covid-19. Dr. Rajpal did not want to wait, based on the decreased muscle strength I was experiencing. Pre-op was interesting, with only my husband being able to be with me and once I was wheeled back to surgery, he had to head home and was not able to stay at the hospital and see me once I was in recovery (Covid protocol at the time). Surgery went well and I was able to go home that evening. The hard collar was annoying to wear for 6 weeks, to be honest, but manageable. The first two follow-up appts were done via telehealth, with one of those needing x-rays ahead of time. The telehealth appts seemed to work just fine. I did have my latest follow up in person, though, with imaging done prior to again. Team Rajpal has done a great job with my care, all the way from the surgery consultation to now and I have no doubt they will maintain that level of professionalism and care moving forward. I would recommend getting a hold of Dr. Rajpal and his team for your neurosurgical needs. You'll be in good hands! - B.P
I had fusion of L4 and L5. I’m pleased with every phase of the procedure. - H.H
Dr. Nanney is a very kind gifted neurosurgeon. I had major surgery a year & half a go which was perfect. I have something new going on and Dr Nanney & Brian have been fabulous working with me to get this issue solved. His office staff is so nice as well. In person and over the phone. I highly recommend them. - D.m
The entire consultation process was smooth and reassuring. I felt well looked after during a stressful time. - C.s
This being my first surgery I really have nothing to compare it with. I guess it was good, everyone I had to deal with were very nice. I am still recovering and not feeling very well, but I trust Dr Nanney and hope for a great outcome. - E.L
From the appointment on I felt comfortable and confident with Dr. Nelson. He explained my MRI and what needed to be done with surgery. He performed my surgery and my Post-Op has been great with very little discomfort. Also thanks to Mike Kiley. Dr. Nelson is great surgeon and person. Thank you, Dr. Nelson. Ray Stonecipher - R.S
Selected Dr V and BNS based on detailed information on website following general referral by primary care physician. I was expressing accuse symptoms in level adjacent to previous ACDF surgery. Diagnoses was swift and accurate and Dr V and staff worked well to coordinate a surgery date of March 12 just before Covid 19 closures. Surgery and recovery period was as communicated prior to the procedure. Follow up visits have been informative. I believe I made I god set of choices with the doctor and the surgical course of action - T.K
Very professional all my concerns were addressed and the issue that required consultation has been resolved - R.H
Disc replacement of C7/8. Went perfectly and could not have been a better experience. - R.D
It took two trips to surgery to complete my fusion. It was well worth it. My pain is controlled. - S.A
Dr Rajpal was so great at getting me in quickly and help get me out of pain. The discectomy surgery was so successful for me, I’m back to living my active lifestyle without pain - A.L
Entered Dr. V office with major back and leg pain. After surgery all back and leg pain is gone. Thanks Dr.V and everyone else. - D.M
Even though I was comatose/sleeping most of his visits I do remember the caring attitude and professionalism that Dr. Rajpal and all of your staff exhibited. The surgery was completed successfully with no lasting side effects. - T.R
Overall Dr. Rajpal and staff were good to work with. I am a little frustrated that it can take up to a couple of years for nerves to heal, so I cannot give a any rating on the treatment results at this time, so time will tell.This review is one year post op. - T.S
Expert care and kind and responsive staff - J.I
Tele visit - D.W
The whole process went very well and the surgery was a success. The P.A.’s were the best at keeping me informed and very patient with all my questions. Have recommended this office to several friends. - S.D
Fusion of vertebrate 5&6 in neck. - W.T
Doing great - L.M
I was very happy with the overall services that Dr Sharad Rajpal and the staff of Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates provided. They were very courteous, caring and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sharad Rajpal to anyone. The surgery has giving me great relief and I couldn’t be any happier. - L.V
This surgery was the most terrifying event that I,ve ever been thru. I was fortunate to have the best surgeon and be in the best care facility in all of Colorado. Dr Nanney believed in me and let me recover in the comfort of my home. I have since made great progress and am healing very quickly. I would like to Thank him for his expertise in performing a very difficult surgery but also as a compassionate human being. Forever Grateful, Bobby Swanson - B.S
I am very happy to be in the care of Dr Nanney. I have never had surgery before and am slightly nervous after watching it online, but he has tried to minimize my fear. I am looking forward to being able to live again. I really like Toni at the front desk, she has been very kind and friendly. Dr Nanney is not like any surgeon I have talked to in the past, he is very friendly. I have read the reviews on their site and it seems like I am in for a good surgery and recovery. - e.L
Very pleasure experience at your office in Longmont. Thank you. - f.n
Over all no complaints. - l.n
Dr. Rajpal was excellent answered all questions thoroughly. Great outcome from the surgery. Jen Tierney, his nurse at the office was also great and always willing to take time with me. The surgical team at Avista was great as was the pre-op seminar they offered.Highly recommended! - C.S

Dr. Rajpal and staff were all fantastic...not a single complaint! Thank you all so much! - P.K
The surgery seems at this point to be a success, at times recovery was rough but that is to be expected. I appreciate all that Dr. Nanny has done for me, he has been great. The hospital staff was super, no complaints there. - P.B
Had a herniated disc which caused severe pain at times. After minimally invasive partial discectomy most pain is gone and I can sit, stand, and lie down comfortably which I couldnít before. Operation went smoothly and I was impressed with the results I got from dr V. I felt significantly better immediately after surgery and wished i had done the surgery sooner. - G.G
I was in an auto accident and broke L1 in my back. Had to have emergency surgery. Doctor V was my surgeon. The surgical procedure and healing process has gone well. Initially communication was difficult with the doctors and their offices, but we were in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, so I understand. Overall, the experience has been very good. Doctor V did a great job of putting me back together. - Michael Boone
I had the back surgery about one year ago and I have been pain free. The next morning after surgery I had no pain except the surgery pain. With in a week no pain at all. - T.T
I have had a great experience as a patient for Dr V. My quality of life has been returned to me as a result of Dr Vís expertise. Also his nurse practitioner (Leah ) is so professional and patient friendly, - K.H
Overall my experience was and continues to be excellent. From the first visit going over my MRI with Dr Rajpal to the pre-op & post-op communications/visits, all has been great. Special thanks to Dr Rajpal, Trent and Jen for taking care of my cervical spine surgery and another to Mikeely handling the front desk items as well as scheduling. This was my first surgery and everyone helped make it all go smoothly so thank you all! I'm doing much better now.Mark Garcia - M.G
I HAD SURGERY ON MY LUMBAR SPINE 2-29-2020 AT FOOTHILLS COMMUNITY HOSPITAL WITH DR SHARAD RAJPAL. PRECEDING MY SURGERY I HAD A TRAUMATIC INJURY THAT LANDED ME IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM THE WED. BEFORE THE 29 WHICH HAPPENED TO BE A SAT. I HAD A TERRIBLE FALL ON TUES OF THAT WEEK AND LANDED DIRECTLY ON MY LOWER BACK. THE MRI WED SHOWED THAT I HAD HERNIATED A DISC. AFTER TREATING ME FOR EXCRUCIATING PAIN I DROVE HOME. DR. RAJPAL EXCELLENT TEAM OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS CALLED MR THE NEXT AM ASKING ME TO COME INTO THE OFFICE. AT THAT TIME I COULDNíT EVEN SIT UP IN BED OR BARELY MOVE WITHOUT HORRIFIC PAIN. HIS OFFICE ASKED ME TO GET TO THE HOSPITAL ASAP. I FINALLY GOT TO MY CAR, DROVE TO THE HOSPITAL ER WHERE I WAS MEET BY THE DOCTORS PHYSICIANS ASSISTANT JENNIFER TIERNEY.. SHE WAS VERY COMPASSIONATE AND MADE SURE MY PAIN WAS TAKEN CARE OF FIRST ! SHE WENT OVER THE MRI WITH ME AND LET ME KNOW I NEEDED SURGERY RIGHT AWAY. SHE THEN SAID DR RAJPAUL DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING OPEN UNTIL APRIL. I HAD MET THE SURGEON IN OCT 2019 AFTER MY GENERAL PRACTITIONERDR ROBIN NORDSTROM LANE AND MY CHIROPRACTOR DR GINGER WOLF REFERRED MR TO HIM. AT THAT TIME I WAS SEEING THE DOC FOR LOW BACK PAIN I HAD AND MRI IN JULY 2019 and gave that to Dr. Rajpal . it did not show any disk herniation. When the pa said he didnít have openings until April. I didnít want to see anyone else. Within an hour Dr. Rajpal came in and said how about Saturday. And I was admitted. Following surgery I miraculously have zero pain. I didnít take any pain meds. I am 3 months post op and I have healed very well. I had previous surgery and required months of pain medicine. I highly recommend Dr. Rajpal. I love the team miserly and Brittany and carol were always available for the many times I called. They were always in a good mood and professional and compassionate. I also met Trent he gave me my brace who was lovely as well. This team gets back to you right away. - J.F
Follow up of one year post surgery for laminectomy in thoracic region. - C.H
Surgery went wonderful. Recovery and Rehab was wonderful also. The best of the best - G.J
I feel great. All the pain I had before the surgery is gone. Right now I feel good. Thanks for doing a great job. - G.C
My surgery was February 3, 2020. My experience with Dr. Rajpal and the practice began last fall.The office experience was very positive from the first visit. Dr. Rajpal was clear in his evaluation and expectation setting.The surgery experience went as expected from my perspective as the patient. The follow up from Dr. Rajpal and his P.A.s was positive and encouraging. My ability to function physically grew more rapidly than initially predicted. It has been an exceptionally positive healthcare experience dealing with Dr. Rajpal and his team. - T.C
A GREAT surgical experience and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. THANKS to Dr. V and the entire team. I had two spinal stenosis areas trapping my Sciatic nerve opened up three weeks ago. Surgery was outpatient, checked in at 6:30 and Dr. V himself called my wife at 9:30 to tell her it all went fine and pick me up at 11. Yesterday, 3 weeks after surgery I did a telemedicine follow up with Dr. V and got permission to play golf: “swing easy and use my head”. .the pain is gone and I took zero pain killers. You can tell they care and they are very good at what they do. Sincere thanks from, Dr. Warren Graboyes - w.g
Two spine surgeries in 4 months was not what I had in mind for 2019. Then again, who does? Dr. Rajpal and his entire team were incredible from the first appointment thru the final appointment. First, Dr. Rajpal was very detailed in his evaluation of my situation. We talked first and then he reviewed my images. This made me feel like a "person" and not a set of x-rays and MRIs. He gave a clear recommendation and explained why he thought this was the best course of treatment. I appreciated his evaluation of not just what my case looked like at this time, but he talked about the longer-term possibilities. Before my bike crash, I was a very active cyclist riding ~6500 miles per year. The entire team felt committed to helping me eliminate pain and regain my active lifestyle. I went into my ACDF surgery at C5-C6 with a paralyzed vocal cord (thought to be idiopathic). My voice and breathing were both impacted. When I woke up after surgery, my voice was back! While there were immediate signs of improvement, the pain reduction was slow as the nerve needed time to heal. Dr. Rajpal and his team were extremely patient with my litany of questions and they provided me with a lot of reassurance: nerves take time. One month after my ACDF surgery, an old injury at L5-S1 felt the need to speak up. Within in a month, I was unable to walk or stand without sciatica pain. At my 3 month follow up for my cervical spine, we were reviewing x-rays and MRI results for my lumbar spine. I was devastated. I could wait it out (did this in 2012 and it took years) or I could have a microdiscectomy. Dr. Rajpal and his team were once again extremely patient in answering my questions. So, I proceeded and had my second surgery four months after the first one. I am now one year post ACDF and 8 months post microdiscectomy. I'm hiking 20 miles a week (longest hike has been 13 miles). I'm back on my bikes (road, gravel and mountain). I'm riding the kind of rides I enjoy -- steep climbs in beautiful places (Gold Hill, Logan Mill, Ward, Sunshine Canyon, Switzerland Trail, Super Flagstaff, and more to come). While the nerves are still healing, I am free of pain. It has given me back my active lifestyle. Life without pain has given me my ability to concentrate again and to enjoy reading, sewing, metalsmithing, baking, and socializing. Honestly, I can't find the words to completely express both my gratitude to Dr. Rajpal and his team and my 100% recommendation for anyone in need in a neurosurgeon and his team. I am a better person for their care. Thank you! - D.C
I highly recommend Dr Nanney! I was in a lot of pain for 2 years. He did a surgery on my back L5-S1. I’m 1 year post surgery and I feel great, NO PAIN at all! He simply gave me my life back. I’m very satisfied, I can’t thank him and his staff enough! Thank you Dr.Nanney! - j.l
So impressed with the whole process in my surgery. Using Mazor X, I believe helped me in my quick recovery. My leg pain that I had for 4 years is completely gone. I finally got my life back!! A special thanks to Jen who gave me the nudge I needed to have this surgery done. Thank you to everyone in your office who had a part of my surgery. You and your office will be highly recommended to everyone along with Mazor X. - D.M
The entire staff is wonderful. - B.B
I am very happy with the care that has been provided by everyone within the office. The staff is always very professional and courteous. It is obvious they care about what they do and their patients very much! Thank you for the great support through difficult medical issues. - D.B
Outstanding - Douglas Land
Quick, friendly staff. Adapted well to current public health orders. Entire experience 5 star start to finish. Back pain is 100 gone. - W.a
spinal stenosis - P.K
A celebrated neurosurgeon surrounded by kind and supportive mid levels who give time to inform and reassure. Thanks - J.I
The procedure was one of the most positive experiences of my life. I anticipated a painful and slow recovery period. In stead I was able to walk the day after the operation and took the last pain medicine 10 days after the procedure. It is now 14 days after the operation and I walk around 2 miles daily and have no pain or any other symptoms that lead to the lower back fusion in the first place. A miracle! - P.D
I was extremely satisfied by the high level of professionalism and ethic. I cannot wish better outcome that I had because of Dr. Villavicencio skills. - A.B
I suffered from low lumbar pain which was disabling and significantly interfered with the quality of my life. I had put off back surgery until the pain simply got the better of me. My great fortune was in finding such an exceptional neurosurgeon in Dr. V. The application of his surgical skills have made all the difference. I feel indebted to him for eliminating completely the lumbar pain I suffered from for so long a period of time and, of course, for returning my life back to normalcy. From a grateful patient- J.R. Gama - Richard game
I was treated very well. They didn’t keep bugging me all the time which was good. Very helpful and kind. - S.s
Jen has been great. You and you staff has been Terrific!! - P.E
I am so pleased that I had the surgery , I feel so much better & my life is better pain free. Before surgery I was taking 3 -500mg three times a day of Tylenol = 4500 mg just to get through the day. Now I take none. I hope that puts it into perspective. I would say the first 2weeks after surgery were the hardest ,not because of pain but just learning how to move correctly as to let the healing begin. Once I had that down I was on my way, recovery was so much better than what I expected. Thank you Dr. V & Dr. Eric you both are amazing & did such a great job. I canít express enough how thankful I am to have my life back. Before I came to Boulder Neurosurgical & spine I thought I would have to live the rest of my life in pain, you gave me hope & took away all of my lower back and leg pain. I will be forever grateful , Thank you Mary Wagner - M.Wagner
My surgery appointment was scheduled earlier than expected, the staff was friendly and professional throughout. I would highly recommend all of you. Thank you! - J.W
The entire process has been very easy to deal with. Everything and everyone has made this process very easy to get my back fixed and make all the pain I was in go away. So I thank all of you for that. - R.M
As of this date, the surgery performed was successful and absolutely resolved the problem presented to the physician. As far as staff, mostly pleasant and helpful but communication could be improved. Dr. Rajpal is great and very appreciated, I would have really liked to have seen him for a visit after the surgery at 2 weeks to discuss the surgery, outcome and future. The PA is very helpful and attentive though. I would have appreciated a little more pre op and post op teaching and information as the staff at the hospital were not trained on spinal post-op patients. A class or video on this would have been helpful. I do really appreciate the outcome though. It is a relief. Thank you. - P.M
I had no issues. - R.M
I was able to do an online visit instead of driving 30 minutes there and back. It actually seemed more personal and prompt because the device there was carried from person to person and everyone was very nice. I feel that I received the same care that I would have in the office other than Dr V being able to do a general physical exam. This is an excellent alternative to visiting a top physician without losing half a day of work.Dr V is an exceptional surgeon and my surgery was a complete success. Everything went exactly as he explained that it would. - r.w
Dr. Villavicencio saw me in the ER for a spinal headache from another surgeonís work. I was ready to undergo another surgery to repair but Dr. V talked about a less invasive procedure and gave me the confidence through evidence supporting his recommendation. It worked saving me the risks and recovery associated with surgery. He is my hero! Only go to these docs for any spine surgery! - B.H
I had a very nice telecom visit with Dr. Nanney, for follow up on test results & continued pain in lumbar & cervical areas. Due to limitations with computer appointments & not having all the tests done we couldn't review everything in detail, but Dr. Nanney was very thorough in explaining what he did know up to that point. We reviewed the past few months of problems I've been having along with my visits with Brian when he was unavailable. As always I did not feel rushed with Dr. Nanney . - D.m
I have lived in constant back pain for years. It literally took any quality of life I may have enjoyed. I has been so long,I just didn't realize what I was missing.Almost six months after surgery I have actually began hiking and taking walks -pain free!I am so glad I had this surgery done, and I thank Dr. Nanny and his staff for everything! - D.m
The original consult was awesome, very friendly, professional and responsive staff. Last minute laminectomy process based on symptoms went very well with Anna in scheduling as she had to go through many hoops switching insurance, and getting it approved before surgery.Surgery seemed to go well with both the LUH staff, Dr. Nanney and his PA doing an awesome job.Post- op virtual conference went well with Toni and team making the process seamless, and Dr. Nanney answering all of my questions with care and concern.Thank you all for your great efforts..please stay safe and healthy!Pete Dreher - p.D
Excellent Service! - S.S
Had a surgery to remove a mass from my brain. Dr. V was amazing and professional did such a great job removing all of the mass and making recovery time minimal. - N.N

Dr. Nanney, Brian, and the entire office staff are lovely. So thankful I found this practice/ team. I had been dealing with chronic pain for almost 10 years. I am now pain free and back to my old self. So thankful! - M.L
My personal experience with not only Dr. Villavicencio was not only off the charts fantastic they were nothing shy of the very best from the receptionist the nurses and the surgeons . Every time I had an appointment or needed to call in everyone was very carrying and extremely helpful and understanding. My back surgery was excellent and very successful I attribute this to the extremely high professionalism of Dr. Villavicencio and his team . His extreme knowledge and personal care for his patients are by far better than any other surgeon I have ever had in the past. I cannot say enough about how great my personnel experience has been with the entire team at Dr. Villavicencioís office . - L.H
Right from the get go at my first appointment I felt listened to, respected, and understood. Dr. Nanney calmly and clearly helped me understand the underlying cause of my symptoms, possible outcomes given several possible courses of treatment, and ultimately the surgical process involved in overcoming my injury. I did tons of (maybe too much) research online before my discectomy and every concern I had was alleviated by Dr. Nanney. I am two weeks post-op at the time of writing and I am so thankful for his help and competence, and grateful to be out of pain and recovering successfully. Iíd highly recommend this surgeon to anyone! - B.S
Awesome. My neck feels great. Dr. Rajpal and all the staff are fantastic - Steve Strock

Every staff member is very professional and kind. We thank them for their incredible services! A special thanks to Dr. Rajpal and Jenny the PA. You guys are awesome. - E.Arostegui
Dr Rajpal and Trent the PA leave you with a sense of well being office visits are on time etc. A belief that all will be as planned is installed from both would recommend my surgeon and his team to friends. When asking a question concerning physical therapy tFor front desk to pass on to Trent apparently he received the question but his response was not sent back to me and this was disappointing and allows for little confidence in knowing any concern I might have would not be taken serious - Redema.S
Most excellent. Iím very impressed with both, before and after care, as well as the surgery. - K.M
Had a microdiscectomy on my l5-S1 that went incredibly well. Everyone at BNSA was extremely nice to work with and helped me get my life back faster than I thought was possible. - T.A
Back pain for twenty years. Fixed with surgery . Unbelievable relief. - Mark Jenkins
12/2018 ACDF, 11/2019, TFIL. The experience from both surgeries were excellent. My goal was to rid the pain. BNA was right choice. Dr. Rajpal and his team are both professional and caring. - R.W
Dr Villavicencio has operated on me twice for cervical fusions and both times he did a marvelous job. I had a fusion previously with another surgeon and it was not a great experience so I know the difference. I highly recommend him to all of my friends and several have had good experiences with him as well. - M.C
In January, I was trail running, fell on ice, and ruptured a disc between my S1 L5 vertebra, my hip and leg began getting tight, and then I began to lose sensation in my foot and calf, I developed a condition known as drop foot. and was referred to Dr.. V. He performed surgery to remove the rupture on the outside of the disc that was pressing against a nerve and causing the loss of sensation and function in my foot, it was a pretty frightening experience to lose this function since Iím a very active person. After the surgery the pain in my hip and leg was gone. It has been three weeks since the surgery and Iím beginning to regain function in my left foot. Also the numbness is beginning to diminish. I canít thank Dr. V and this clinic enough for restoring the function of my foot which is so critical to my active lifestyle and quality of life. - G.J
I began with lots of pain in lower back and hips which led me to need surgery. Happily I can now say I am totally pain free and back to leading an active and busy life.Dr. Rajpal and his staff are amazing. They are skilled , professional and caring. - L.P
My surgery and recovery was far less painful and debilitating than I ever imagined. The quality of care was top notch and the staff were unbelievably pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend Dr Rajpal to anyone suffering from lower back issues. - E.D
Lumbar fusion well done. Prep and follow up exams great explanation of procedure, excersize plan via physical therapy. Results were better than expected. - P.West
I ask Dr. V. & his term to stabilize my lumber spline, plus remove scare tissue from spinal cord. They did a tremendous job. My back is secure and I have no back pain. I rode my bicycle to this appt. first time in 15 years. I thank all of you. - B.W
Excellent experience, very kind and caring staffWill recommend Dr Nanny to anyone asking for referral - D.S
At 6 months out I have no back pain and feel fabulous in relation to how I felt before my surgery. I only regret I did not have the surgery sooner. Dr. Rajpal and his staff have been wonderful to me through the whole process. I feel very fortunate to have chosen Dr. Rajpal as my surgeon. I cannot recommend him highly enough! - S.P
From first visit to surgery to recovery- all was excellent with staff, surgeon and everyone in between, Thank you ???? - L.D
C4-C5 fusion on 2/19/19; today was final ďgraduationď post surgery recheck. Jen was fabulous as usual and great to get the final thumbs up from Dr. Rajpal. - M.M
Surgery was great, day after surgery all leg pains were gone. The soreness from back incision were minimal and no drugs required. - Grant Greene
Dr V was very clear with me on my progress after fusion surgery and what I need to focus on as I move forward. Eric, the PA was very helpful and patient with me showing me the X-ray and asking questions on how I am doing with suggestions on developing core strength and taking the time to answer all my questions and concerns. - Dan Macy
I had a very good experience and appointment with Dr. Nanney. I am very encouraged with my recovery and progress. He explained my current condition is normal and will take some time for full recovery from my type of surgery. - J.K
So very happy with my results. Thank you for using the robot on my surgery. Only 9 days out from surgery and feeling great and already off the pain meds. Thank you!! - D.M
Iím very pleased with how Dr. Rajpal has handled my spine case! He took every precaution to make sure what needed to be done before surgery. I have been well cared for since surgery! I would recommend Dr Rajpal to anyone who needs help with complex spine issues. - N.M
Awesome start to finish! I have always felt very confident in Dr. V. Besides his experience and skills as a surgeon...which are monumental...his bedside manner is warm, caring and personal. He gets straight to the point but, in addition, he has a subtle and nice sparkle. Dr. Vís PA, Eric Busch gets 5 stars. He is very efficient, knowledgeable, and personable. He has complete and understandable answers to all my questions. He also has had good advice like telling me not to shovel snow! How did he know I would try to sneak that in?Aly Schwab is also wonderful person to work with. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you all! - Meg Bentley
Making the appointment was easy and without waiting to long and being seen within 15 days. After Dr. Nanny reviewed my MRI's, CAT SCAN and x-ray. He examined me and ask about where and how bad my pain was. He showed me where my spinal fluid sack was pinched and explained that he could possibly ease my neuropathic pain if he did a laminectomy that I could get some relief. Dr. Nanny changed my mind from getting hardware placed in my spine from T-9 down to S-1. I still have pain(rated at a 5 to 7 on the pain scale) everyday in the lower lumbar area of my back. I am going to be scheduled for laminectomy surgery in March of 2020. I am hoping and praying that this will relieve at least the neuropathic feeling I have.Yes I would recommend my friends and Family to see Dr. Nanny. - m.P
Dr Nanney is awesome!!! - t.A
I have had very good experience with Eric and Dr V. Both surgeries helped me rejoin an active lifestyle whereas before surgery I truly wanted a wheelchair, I would park my 4 Wheeler by the back door so I wouldnít have to walk 100í to the barn. I can walk now and take care of myself. I had one s/I joint all the lumbar and 1 thoracic fused. The skill and care given by this team is great, I would not let anyone else touch my back-I do hope I donít need too. I think they are the best and then thereís the rest, thank you Dr. V and Eric!! . - K.S
Very professional and caring staff. I would highly recommend Dr. V. - J.G
Excellent. The entire experience from the first visit through surgery and all follow ups was amazing. I felt that really cared about me. - P.B
Trent was personable and informative. Took time with me to answer my questions and explain my status and progression. Dr Rajpal was supportive and encouraging. Both lift my spirits. Brittany was also great. - L.D
Had pain radiating down leg. Had microdiscectomy l4 to l5. Could barely walk when I arrived for surgery. After surgery I walked to the parking lot with problem completely resolved. That is the case as of today 3 1/2 months later. - D.W
Had a spinal fusion on L4,5,S1 that went flawlessly. Stopped all pain medication after a few days. Recovery is going quickly. Fantastic Outcome - C.H
Today was my 3 month followup with Dr V for a C6-7 discetomy and fusion. I couldn't be happier with Dr. V and the staff. On my initial visit last October 30th, Dr V was very confident of the diagnosis and recommended procedure. I was suffering badly at the time, and he was able to get me in quickly for the procedure on November 11th. The terrible nerve pain I was dealing with was completely gone within 24 hours of the surgery. The hard collar I had to wear post surgery was cumbersome at times, but outside of some neck stiffness and some initial pain on swallowing, the recovery was pretty easy. I am back to XC skiing, cycling, and my regular strength routine, and the neck/nerve pain I had dealt with for years is completely gone. Dr. V came highly recommended from a colleague (Chiropractor) of mine and the entire experience has been 5 stars. - W.H
Great results! - M.L
I was in constant mean pain and was close to accepting a life of painkiller addiction but doctor Villavicencio cleared out my bulging discs with minimal intrusion and today I am Pain Free ó so, thank you doctor V and company. You deserve the great reviews. - J.S

Dr Nanney was very patient and explained his view well. - D.b
Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Dr Nanney was very nice. I look forward to moving forward in my treatment and surgery. - E.L
My experience with Dr. Nanney was absolutely exceptional! I flew out to Boulder from Tennessee for a consult based on his outstanding reputation and he did not disappoint. A major hospital recommended a lumbar fusion, but at my age I was hesitant to jump straight to that option. He recommended and performed a minimally invasive laminectomy and the results have truly been life-changing. I would recommend him to anyone! - M.w
It was great! The only thing I would change is the wait time. - C.m
Multi level lower back fusion. 3 month checkup and all is well. Excellent doctors and staff. I am fixed - no more pain!, - J.K

After living in chronic pain for many yrs, I had 2discs replaced, and my L4, L5, S1 fused 4 months ago.I feel like a new person and am going back to work.Before surgery, I spent six months researching. Dr. Nannyís team are the best around, - D.M
Fantastic - P.M
Dr Nanney is an amazing surgeon. I HIGHLY recommend him and am so grateful he was my surgeon to replace my cervical disc after my auto accident. Iím doing better than ever and attribute that to Dr. Nannyís surgical skill and expertise. Plus, his calm, caring demeanor helped me feel safe and in good hands prior to the surgery, which really eased mine and my familyís fears. Heís just wonderful. Thank you so much!! - L.L
Dr. Rajpal is an excellent doctor took great care of me and I had an awesome surgery! Best experience Iíve ever had for a surgery and outcome. - T.A

Pain in lower back. Into legs. Loss of feeling all down into my feet. Dr Rajpal fused all my Lís. Now I can walk upright. The surgery was extremely painful. The rehab was long. But Dr Rajpal was absolutely AWESOME! He really did fix the problem. Thank God fr such a wonderful doctor. - Denay Runnels
Amazing and beyond fantastic! I always was treated like a person rather than just another patient. - T.P
Once the Emergency Room staff recognized the severity of my problem and referred it to Dr Nannyís office, he and his office staff worked so hard to see me the very next day. I have suffered for over 30 years with pain and Dr Nanny is a life saver. His skill as a surgeon helped my entire attitude on life. His staff has always been there for me for any questions or concerns I have had. - Victoria Egerman
Great doctor.and stuff - J.S
I was very pleased with this experience. Dr. Rajpal was excellent. Everyone was great to work with. The care and personal attention was always excellent. I am very pleased with the surgery. I have no regrets. I will recommend Dr. Rajpal and his staff to everyone. - V.P
Everyone was helpful and friendly. Staff at the office and Avista Hospital were knowledgeable and competent. - S.A
My husband has been seeing Dr. Nanney for some time. He did his back surgery. I think that is reason enough to go see him for myself. The staff is great too. Dr. Nanney is doing neck surgery on Nick this month also. - J.D
This operation has saved my life. Thank you, to all involved.Bill Marks. - R.M
The three surgeries were necessary for me to. Lead a fairly normal life. Dr Rajpal was able to give me the necessary attention and professional expertise to correct my back issues. He preformed three surgeries and I now am free of back pain. And able to enjoy life again. I had the least possible amount of wait time before the surgeries. - J.M
I was seen very quickly when my symptoms had become unbearable. I was treated with the utmost respect and kindness. Dr. Nanney took the time to not only explain to me what was going on with my back but what the best next step would be. I was very fortunate that my surgery was done quickly. I do appreciate the honesty and reassurance that this is a marathon recovery and to be patient. Dr. Nanney has given me back the lifestyle that I never believed I would get that back.b - M.I
Had surgery on the 12th of November 2019. Recovered enough to go home that evening. After surgery Immediate relief of pain in right leg. Able to walk a mile a few weeks after surgery without pain. Had a reccurrence of pain during the 5th week post surgery. Improving again by 8 weeks post surgery. Overall positive experience. Staff has been very pleasant and helpful. - W.B
Everything and everyone was wonderful with my back surgery and all my follow up so far. - J.H
Dr. V and Eric took me from constant headaches and pain to living pain free. In need of an artificial disc, but knowing my active lifestyle, Dr. V researched the perfect solution so I could continue activities important to me... hiking, telemark skiing, backpacking, and climbing. They are amazing, and extremely caring. Thanks to the whole crew. - M.H
Carpal tunnel surgery 11/27/19 - J.H
Spinal fusion 10/18/19 - K.H
I have gotten 3 surgeries from Dr V. A quadruple neck fusion, micro discectomy and lower back fusion. My neck and back feel fantastic! I canít tell you how much of a life changer theses surgeries were. I literally trust Dr V with my life. All the pain I was experiencing is gone and I can do things like hike again. Iím still in the healing process but I expect to be back to my old self at some point in time. Before I came to see him I thought I would have to be in pain the rest of my life. The pain being gone is like a giant weight lifted off my shoulders. If you are told you need surgery donít be afraid to get it. You will be in the best hands. - Jason Kuehl
This is the surgical experience that I have ever had. I have had to have 4 other surgeries and this by far was the greatest result that occurred even with issues that we did not discuss or expect. I have needed to take nerve medication to treat severe tremors in both hands. Since the day of the surgery over 6 weeks ago I have not needed to take a single pill to address the tremors and this was an issue that it never occurred to me that would be corrected. I came out of surgery and immediately noticed that for the first times in years I did not feel the pain in my hands and I also did not have any severe or any tremors at all. I was afraid to say it out loud in case it might come back. I am so thankful for this surgeon and his team that addressed all of my needs and concerns that I had including my fears of this procedure. And for the reason that I went to him was to be able to have movement in my neck which had basically felt that I would never know the freedoms of just being able to turn my neck from side to side without experiencing severe pain. There were several other surgeons who was going to perform a fusion of my spine for 5 thru 7 and the movement would never be there again. Because of his procedure I have full range of movement and it truly is a blessing that I did not even imagine being able to experience again.If anyone has a problem with their spine this is truly the only team to go to. He will never guarantee results; however; he will do everything humanly possible to get the greatest results. - F.C
Excellent service advice and medical treatment totally satisfied. - H.H
Needed back surgery and Dr Nanney and his staff have been incredible! They have been very caring and always took the time to follow up and answer questions for as long as it took. Couldnít have asked for a better team to handle this life event for me! I highly recommend them! - C.C
Very nice and concerned. Friendly - Davette Maestas
I am continuing to steadily improve. No problems with my back. No pain. My leg strength and balance have been coming back with PT. I am back at work (potter and pottery teacher) and have been doing my regular work within the lifting restrictions of 30 lbs. The only complication in my recovery has been the slow healing of a back abrasion caused by the leaving on my back brace for at least one night during my stay at Foothills Rehab. And, other than that, the three weeks of rehab was a positive experience with high level of care by nurses and aides and Physical Therapy staff. My x-rays look good. I feel better and better. I am free of the sciatic leg pain of pre-surgery. Iím glad that I opted for back surgery with Dr, Rajpal. - Steve.B
Very good doctor answered all my questions and explained everything I would recommend him to all my friends personal great respect answered all my questions - S.M
Dr Rajpal performed a discectomy and fusion of c5-c7. I had a lot of questions about the surgery including risks, options, and the possible outcomes one could expect. Dr Rajpal answered all of my questions and was very attentive to my concerns,The surgery went well, the scar from the incision is very small and hard to see. I would recommend Dr Rajpal to anyone who is considering this type of surgery. - J.C
I had an L5/S1 fusion in June 2019 by Dr V. Prior to this I had terrible left leg pain that made all activity and sleep very difficult. This type of condition takes a toll mentally as well. This had been going on for almost 2 years with other low back pain years before that. Six months later I am so happy to say that I canít remember when I felt this great! Dr V and Eric were amazing as well as the rest of the staff. I wasnít very hopeful going in to this as I had a back surgery the year before that helped but did not fix the problem. Dr V and his staff listened to me and I feel very fortunate to have found them. I would highly recommend Dr V for any back problems. - Peggy.L
Extremely professional, practice. Everyone we encountered was helpful and kind, rest assured we will recommend Dr Nanney to everyone. It was a pleasure to be a patient., - J.M
Dr Nanney was attentive and easy to work with. He understood how important the physical as well as emotional aspect of the health was. He was great with the surgery and the follow. - S.B
Dr. Nanney literally saved my life. I went to the emergency room with ďstroke likeĒ symptoms and was soon diagnosed with a spinal cord compression that would continue to progress until it killed me. Dr. Nanney was my surgeon and did my decompression and fusion surgery from my occipital to my neck. The surgery was lengthy and risky but Dr. Nanney put myself, and my family, at the most ease that he could.The surgery was very successful and I already have motor skills improving (Three weeks post surgery) that I had slowly been losing for several months! This has been an amazing side benefit from the surgery as I chose surgery to prolong my life, not for any other benefits.Dr. Nanney himself is kind, caring and very responsive to my questions and needs. I highly recommend him To anyone who is considering him for their surgery. You wonít find a better surgeon anywhere else.Thank you,B. Marks - B.Marks
I had spinal fusion L2-5 one year ago this week and feel that the surgery was very successful. Dr. V was great, not only in the OR but pre and post-op in all of my visits. - D.W
I was. Told what was going to be done and what to expect. That is. What is going on. - V.Whitaker
Before surgery I had lost strength to my right tricep and right side of my chest. After just 4 months I can already see positive results. Very impressed and happy with the surgery performed. I highly recommend Dr Villavicencio and staff!! - T.L
Excellent and highly professional staff. I suffered from severe pain in my right leg for7months and took all the conservative measures to alleviate the pain. This entailed physical therapy to injections. I felt ready for surgery and am delighted to have found Dr. V. My pain was immediately gone and has been for 2weeks. Prior to surgery I could not stand for longer than 1mlnute. I have my life back! - E.S
2nd back fusion in 2years. My belief in Dr Rajpal and his staff is excellent. Only surgeon I would trust my life to. Thank you so much for giving my life back! - M.L
Extreamly good results from my cervical fusion surgery. All of my pain has resolved. I would highly recommend Dr. Villavicencio and his staff. - A.F
Iíve had a remarkable recovery/experience from my major back surgery from Dr. Villavicencio and surgical team. At the age of 75 and moving to CO, I was suffering from scoliosis and stenosis in my lumbar & thoracic spine. I couldnít stand up straight and was severely bent over. The entire staff are very helpful and concerned about your health issues. - Sandra.O
Excellent care both surgically and upon follow up - D.A
Very pleasureable and extremely professional in all ways including personnel and facilities. Everyone cooperative and informative when we needed it. Follow up to date has been thorough, professional and informative also. - M.B
I was experiencing a lot of back pain for 10 months. Having had 2 previous lumbar fusions (& my neck fused) I was familiar with the pain. After consulting with Eric Busch & Dr. V, having x-rays and an MRI, we decided I needed a 3rd lumbar fusion. Dr. V is an incredible surgeon and Eric an amazing P.A. I had some physical issues after the surgery and a difficult recovery but now, just under 4 months since the date of surgery, Iím doing great! Iím back to hiking and walking a lot & am very happy with the final outcome!!! Dr. V is the best and I always recommend him to friends who are having back issues. - L.Ott
June 2019 TLIF at L5 to s1. Corrected drop foot and recovery went smoothly. To date progress seems good and I have great confidence in Dr. V.. - J.Schafer
Excellent service , super professional staff, results are far better than l expected considering the shape I was in before the operation. All the pain is gone in both legs and lower back. I was able to walk down the hall 5 hours after the operation. Could not have picked a more competent surgeon. - J.S
Came to Dr. V this summer (2019) as my back was causing high amounts of pain. After having another MRI we could see that my back was continuing to get worse and not heal (herniated L4/L5 disc) Dr. V recommended surgery to relieve the pain but between him and his PA I felt comfortable moving forward with surgery. After surgery I was up and ,ovine within 2 days and feeling 99% better than prior to surgery. I feel like I have become a surgery advocate since then for others having similar issues that I had. Dr. V was great about calling me at home after my surgery and answered all of my questions. Might seemed small but meant a lot to me. Been 3 months since my surgery and feel like I got my life back. - Cody.S
Experience was wonderful, I had no residual pain and was up and walking the next day. Pain was completely gone after procedure. - G.G
I feel very well taken care of. All my questions listened to and answered and taken with care and concern. This team demonstrates and gives me confidence with their knowledge and caring nature. - E.G
Fantastic experience! From initial consult to surgery to post surgery follow ups itís been a positive,professional experience with a genuine level of care and empathy. I have had a lot of surgeries over the years ( mountain biking related) and this has to be my nicest experience to date! - Nathan Blattman
I have found Dr Rajpal and his staff to be professionals who care about their patients, and who strive to work with excellence. Iím 6 months post spinal fusion (L3-L5) and I feel great. The extreme pain is gone. I can now return to all normal activities without pain. Before surgery I was flat on my back by early evening. I am very grateful to Dr. Rajpal and his talents. - P.B
After multiple opinions from two orthopedic surgeons, a neurologist, and two non-surgical docs, I felt the short discussion with Dr. Rajpal was unique in his explanation and in line with my expectations. If I had to get stabbed with a knife in my sleep I'd wake up hoping it was Rajpal. L4-5 Microdiscectomy done in minimally invasive fashion. Incision a hair under an 1", and it has been said minimal lamina removal. Vickie in my opinion did an excellent job on the sutures I think the scar will be minimal. Clearly everyone's case will differ, but in my case after surgery I no longer suffered from sciatic nerve pain. I'm at week 4. Still have foot weakness but its said to subside in a few months to a year. Looking forward to full recovery and getting back into my sports. Thank you Team Rajpal. - Hendrix Tysma
The Dr explained my condition, surgery required, treatment and required follow-up. The information he provided was in terms I can understand. I was given opportunity to ask questions and did fell rushed or pressured. His confident manner greatly reduced anxiety for both myself and wife.The results of the surgery were remarkable. I had very little pain after the procedure and did not require pain medication after release. - L.W
I am so very pleased with my experience with Dr Rajpal and Jennifer. I was extremely scared about the surgery and the months ahead, but they both made it easier on me by the many phone calls I had with them about the whole experience. I have nothing but the highest respect for them both and can not thank them enough. Surgery is a scary thing for everyone and they have a very special way of comforting you before and after. I am happy to say I am on my way to a great recovery all because of them. - N.Couture
Excellent, I feel really good. I had great care from Dr Rajpal and his staff. - Nancy Banks
Very good experience, able t do things that I really enjoy. My bike in particular and working on my classic car project. Little bit of pain still but not enough to take anything for it. - Truman Mannon
I had a herniated disc (L5/S1) that was pushing on the nerve so severely that I had constant pain and leg weakness. I had to spend several nights ďsleepingĒ on a stool in my kitchen as it was the spot where my pain was a bit reduced. Dr Rajpal agreed to see me first thing Monday morning after my long weekend and his staff worked wonders to get me in surgery by Tuesday. The surgery went well and I can sleep in my own bed again. I do have some numbness in my leg, but have been told that is normal and will get better with time. - M.Huggins
Prep for surgery was very well done. I knew what would happen and what was expected of me. Surgery went well, I was told. I had to stay an extra day in hosp. Due to reaction to the Duramorph used intrathecally. Recovery has gone well; I am doing PT and that has been good. My follow-up visits have been informative and thorough. Vicky has answered all my questions and given me the information I have needed. All in all, I am well pleased with my experience with Dr. Rajpal. Avista took such good care of me and the staff is excellent. Jeremy is so good and always available. Avista is so wise to have him in that unit. - T.L
Dr. V did such great work on me. I had the mother of back surgery. L1- L5 s1-s2. Iím feeling much better! I also had fluid on my spine after surgery and Eric and Dr V found it immediately and sent me to get a drain. Dr V is awesome and so is Eric and Ellie. Ellie is Dr. Vís office manager and any time I needed anything she was on top of it. Eric always took time and explained everything to me. I would recommend this practice to everyone!! - Barbara Neville
Significant pain in shoulders and down arm, inability to sleep or look up without pain, and had horrible headaches. Three months after surgery, all of those symptoms were completely alleviated. - R.H
Dr.Rajpal was terrific.He did a great job. I would recommend him anytime to anyone. - T.J
I had neck hardware removal from a previous neck fusion and disc removal with a second cervical fusion. Given this was my second fusion, I felt apprehensive. Eric Busch PA and Dr V offered me reassurance and empathized with my fears. Dr V honored my spiritual needs by being with me as I prayed with the nurses and my husband pre-op. I had no complications post surgery other than the normal difficulty swallowing for a week or so. I am now ready to get back into my exercise routine without the arm pain. I am very grateful to have found such wonderful neurosurgical care. I also appreciated the kindness of office staff, especially Aly who never disappointed with her organizational skills! Thank you Boulder Neurosurgical! - K.B
Very good,no complaints,all your helpers were excellent. - S.S

My surgery came about very quickly and dr. Rajpal gave me great comfort and excellent professional care he and his entire have been most kind and professional. I appreciate greatly their care and professionalism - E.S
Before surgery I was unable to stand for more than 30 seconds without pain going down my leg. My surgery consisted of a laminectomy and fusions. Iím now able to stand and talk with people, fix dinner, and go for long hikes without pain!!! Thank you to Dr Rajpal and his team! - E.S
Dr Rajpal is an excellent surgeon in my opinion. He fused my neck (cervical 5-6-7 ) in June and I couldnít be happier with the outcome, he is caring and precise. He has an excellent staff of knowledgeable and caring professionals who are very supportive of patients. - L.S
We, after surgery and a sustained period of care, recommend this office in the strongest terms. They are first rate in training, attention to detail, sensitive in personal care and supportive in every stage of the process. - b.s
I am 77 years old and had lumbar fusion surgery a year ago. Dr. V did my surgery and I was very pleased. I have spent this pass year regaining strength and concentrating on exercises, walking, swimming and getting back to my normal activities. Today at my one year check-up Dr V. has given his ok for not needing to return, but to continue my regular activities. - M.R

Exceeded my expectations. After 3 months walking well two miles and will increase as my progress is excellent I meet people on my walks that have less of a back surgery(mine was L1 -2-3-4-5) and before my surgery date that are in much worse shape I also volunteer at the VA and see many patients that have had back surgery and are still struggling after a year I feel very blessed that I had Doctor Villavicencio and his team take such good care of me. Being 80 years old this surgery will allow me to keep active and have a good lifestyle. I am so thankfulBen Prieb - Ben Prieb
Came in with back pain and numbness in left leg. Surgery was recommended. I was on the fence about having the surgery and came close to canceling it. Fortunately I decided to have the procedure. The outcome was better than I had hoped for. Iím 100% back to normal, with no pain and no numbness. Iím back to hiking, cycling, and riding my horse. Great doctor and staff. - B.West
Follow up for Two level cervical fusion - M.C
L5-S1 fusion - It's only three months out and I already feel like I have my life back. I can put my pants on and roll over in bed! Thanks Dr RajPaul - N.Z
Experienced severe pain in left leg for 10 years. Dr Rajpal immediately saw the problems based on the latest images and recommended fusion surgery. He saw the significant scoliosis and created an approach to relieve the pain without having to deal with the apex of the scoliosis. We scheduled surgery at UC Health. The surgery went well and Dr Rajpal's approach with painkilling meds gave me a pain free experience following surgery. I did not need any narcotic medications during my 3 day-stay at the hospital., just muscle relaxers and Tylenol. Also, during rehab I was able to do light physical therapy in rehab on the lowest doses of narcotics. My leg pain was gone immediately and with light rehab I was back to walking without pain.This was a much better experience than my surgery 12 years ago where the narcotics protocols had me drugged for many weeks. Throughout the planning and hospital experience, Dr Rajpal, Jennifer and Vicki were delightful to work with. Office staff was efficient. Overall an excellent experience. - S.Markman
I deeply appreciate the speed with which my case was handled. Treatment pre and post surgery was amazing. Most importantly I am feeling no pain 4 weeks after surgery which is great!! - M.L
I havenít had surgery before this, so I donít know where the bar is. But I can definitely say I am satisfiesd with my care. Very nice staff. - G.V
Great experience, wish I had done the procedure earlier. - M.S
I had a back procedure preformed and the sharp pain I had was immediately relieved. The entire process went exactly as the Doctor described. I probably put the procedure off longer than I should have. I would highly recommend Doctor Villavicencio and staff. - D.B
He is an excellent dr with a great sense of humor. He and his staff are personable and courteous. The surgery that I had was explained totally to me. - Jeannie Gotta
Dr. VĎs office did a great job pre-surgically and post surgically. Dr. V explained all the details of my condition and what he would do in surgery. The work he did in the two back fusions has settled in nicely, and other than the usual senior citizen back problems, my recovery has been excellent. - Randall Cain
Spinal surgery, Dr V fused C34-56. Everyone was very caring and informative! - L.R
My experience was excellent. Dr V is very good and I am very pleased. - E.R
Before my surgery I was experiencing headaches, numbness in both arms, neck spasms and a severe popping in my neck, Since my surgery all those symptoms have bee relieved, I followed Dr, Villavicencioís post op instructions and did my physical therapy with great results. I fully appreciate how I feel now. Thank you Dr. V. - P.Meinerz
Love Dr V and Erick Busch they helped me so much, just wish I would have done my back surgery sooner. My surgery was May 16th 2019 and this is Sept and I feel great!! I recommend Dr V strongly. I am happy,happy,happy!!! - E.S
Dr. Rajpal and ALL of his staff are excellent. I feel so much more comfortable and assured now that I am in the care of this group. I feel I have a full support team to help me through my issues now and in the future if necessary. This was a second opinion and I'm so thankful I made the decision. Don't hesitate to place your call to Dr. Rajpal should you have needs he might help you with. - E.Stuart
Very helpful! My symptoms went away! - Gwen Wharton
I had the surgery On may 20th. I went home the same day of surgery. Got home woke up the next morning and I had no pain except from the surgery. Every one here at this facility have been very pleasant to me and my wife. - T.T
Came in with severe pain in right neck, shoulder, upper arm, forearm, and index finger a& thumb. Diagnosed with degenerative discs in cervical spine. Prescribed a month of Physical Therapy and rest to avoid surgery. Wasnít successful so had two level artificial disc replacement. Pain immediately gone post-op and have been steadily improving over last 3 months. Have some twinges of very minor pain, but I attribute that to my musculature recovering to normal posture and movement. I am as pleased as I can be with the treatment and outcome. I canít recommend this team highly enough! - S.M
L3/4 fusion on 2-26-19. I was down until the 3 month mark from continued pain. Staff was very helpful. At 6 months things are much better. Twisting movement brings on never pain - but if I watch the twisting no pain meds are needed. Walking 3 miles a day with bench and reformer workouts. - B.S
Vary good. Love team Rajpal's staff. - D.Atkinson
Dr. V saw me for an L4-L5 disk herniation. I had surgery which fixed the problem, and made it so I can sit down again (before sitting was supremely painful). Everybody was super helpful, and addressed my problems and concerns throughout this whole process. - C.E
Dr. V was highly recommended and the surgery was successful. I was not expecting such a long recovery, and dealing with some physical anomalies Like swallowing, couldnít sing, raising right arm, shaving, and lifting weights. But after much physical therapy l have experienced improvement in every area. I feel normal again, after a seven month rehabilitation program. - D.W
Great - K.A
Great interaction and follow up! - A.E
Ended up in the Emergency room and Dr. Villavicencio diagnosed my back pain and left leg weakness, and admitted me to the hospital for surgery.He came in on his day off and performed L4/L5/S1 fusion. When I woke up from surgery, I had no pain in my left leg. I spent a few days in the hospital, and went home to recover. I followed all his post op directions, and 2 months later I was hiking in Italy on my honeymoon pain free. Iím currently, three months out from surgery and I can hike, bike and do all my activities without the horrific back pain. Dr V and Eric have given back my quality of life back. - K.G
I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my surgery. From not being able to walk for more than 15 minutes, stand more than 5 minutes and barely sleeping, I can walk, hike the mountains, bike, swim, run (if I wanted to) and sleep like a marmot. Thanks very much to the whole team for your excellent work and professional guidance! - Y.D
Very happy with surgery and the professionalism of the staff. - Amanda Michael
I was injured 13 years ago where a stair came down on my head and shoulder while moving it in disassembly on a const project, I went through pt and recovered with the caveat that stenosis existed. 8 years ago I rode a motocross bike off a ledge and injured my shoulder, broke my rt. side ribs and punctured the lung. I completed pt and rehabbed well regaining strength and range of motion. 6 years ago after the flood, I began to have pain in the neck, shoulders and occasional sclaratoginous pain in my left leg and rt glute. I saw my primary care doctor and was referred to my rheumatologist, I experienced pain relief was placed on small dose steroidal prednisone. After 6 months I stopped the medication and 3 weeks later my arm dropped and the doctor referred me to Boulder Neurosurgery. Stating it was not indicated by my treatment.The MRI revealed extreme stenosis, bone spurs, and bulging discs. Surgery was scheduled and a 4 level anterior fusion was performed August 7 2017. I had outpatient surgery and had difficulty swallowing my pain medicine and was admitted to Boulder Community For recovery for 2 days. I wore a restrictive collar for 3 months, Underwent evaluation and began physical therapy with Altitude PT. the next 3 months I returned to light carpentry work, wore a soft collar and was driven , not able to drive. Progress came with active stretching, light weight bearing and training. The surgery team managed my quarterly evaluation, after a year I was released from physical therapy. I am a active and still working construction. I turned 65 in January and this month is 2 years in. I have experienced some muscle atrophy and am continuing to rebuild. I am able to do most of my sports and higher level physical work. I feel lucky, and am thankful for the skilled care and expert treatment. Thank you, Ray - Raymond.K
Received excellent treatment and care. All of the team members at this practice made sure that I was informed about my procedures and what to expect during recovery and what to expect long term. I feel that I have made a great recovery and look forward to having many more active years. Thank you all for the excellent care both medically and office efficiency. - Chris Rollinson
Had a three level fusion and I am feeling really good now. The secret is to work hard and do the therapy and be aggressive in trying to get healed. Basically do what the doctor says and thatís it. - D.K
Great experience start to finish. Efficient, friendly, caring staff. Prepared me well for what to expect: surgical procedure, pain management, recovery phases. Inspired confidence and trust during a frightening time. - William Almond
Had L3/4 fusion on 4/11/91.operation went well recovery seems to be going well. - G.A
I saw Dr. Rajpal for a lumbar fusion. The middle vertebrate was out of alignment and pressing on the vertebrate below it and pinching the nerves. I was barely able to walk and had to crawl going up stairs. After surgery, a year later I am able to walk without pain and I am resuming activities.The office staff has been wonderful all through my healing process. They spend time answering my concerns and explaining in detail regarding the Spine and healing process. They were very helpful and motivating during the year long recovery. I have recommended Dr. Rajpal and his staff to my friends. My surgery was difficult and was done with extreme skill. I literally thought it was impossible to be without pain, and a year later I feel like I've been given my life back. I appreciate all the skill and help I've received to improve my quality of life. I couldn't be happier! - D.M
Very good job. I walk straighter and feel so much better than I have in years. - Wauneta.C
I was told I was close to being in a wheelchair because of a problem with my spine. My Dr sent me to see Dr Raj Pal he saw me within 2 days and had me scheduled for surgery with in a week. They surgery went great and I was home from the hospital in less then a week and feeling pretty good. Dr Raj Pal has been seeing me for about a year and a half to check and see how I'm progressing. And now he says my back looks really good and I no longer need to be seen. He is one of the BEST Dr that I have ever seen and I am extremely grateful for all he's done and also grateful to his wonderful staff they are great. Thank you all so much. - D.Bottorff
Had a neck fracture with bacterial infection in 6th and 7th cervical disc. Dr V operated in April followed by antibiotic infusions and oral. The surgery and treatment following was excellent. I highly recommend him. - Charles.S
It has been one year today that Dr.V did a fusion on L4/L5. Having a back surgery and the recovery associated with it is not suppose to be a fun experience but crazy as it sounds mine was a very positive experience. I am literally a new person as a result of Dr. Vís expertise. I was in severe debilitating pain for several years prior to Dr. Vís help. There is an art and science to everything and Dr.V has them both nailed. I am very tuned into customer service and the lack of it in todayís world. Dr. V and staff should write a book and how itís done. We were treated like family by a very polite and concerned staff. We canít name every staff member but Eric B was a staff person that we had a lot of interaction with and he is stellar. Dr. V is like the Michelangelo of surgeons. He is truly a gifted surgeon. If we hear anyone talking about their back problems we strongly recommend they make an appointment with Dr. V. When the best Surgeon and supporting staff in the country is available why would one go anywhere else for help. We are indebted to Dr.V and staff for giving me back my quality of life. Thank you! .....Debbie and Gary - G.C
Auto accident caused damage C5-C7 which required fusion surgery. Dr. Rajpal worked wonders! My recovery went well. Staff was very good to work with. - B.L
A huge surgery and a necessary one. I had interviewed 3 neurosurgeons and chose Dr. V. A good choice. He, Eric and Alex were a great team for me. I had a previous c spine surgery that lacked followUp, so I was pleased with the followUp visits. Thanks to everyone, especially Eric . - S.T
Dr Rajpal preformed a L4-5 posterior fusion TLIF on April 9th, 2019 left the hospital with no pain down my left leg that I had suffered from for 2 years. After chiropractic , physical therapy, injections and oblations without any relief I finally feel free of pain 3 months after surgery. Dr Rajpal and staff were great during and after surgery with follow up. So glad to have my care in their hands - C.W
All of my "L's" needed to be fused. I have very bad arthritis. Dr Rajpal fused all the L's. It is now 6 months and I am doing so very much better. There is evidence that growth is taking place over the fusions. I still have some pain, especially towards the end of the day, but am told that is normal. I'm trying to walk 3 miles daily. I am very glad I had the surgery. I can now walk upright! Yea!!! - Denay Runnels
They were a wonderful safety net in a crisis. Having the surgery done almost immediately was a godsend and having Dr. V doing it on a Sunday was really unexpected and went above and beyond my expectations. - J.R
Doctor V and staff have tremendous knowledge and skills. I researched many professionals before deciding to see Dr. Villavicencio. I lived out of town where medical care for my serious spinal problems was not available, Spinal cord compression required emergency surgery and massive metal implants. Dr. V. also does follow up on a previous brain surgery done by another physician many years before. I am delighted to speak tremendous praise for Dr. V and his staff. - B.K
Excellent. Jen is great as Dr Rajpal - P.K
My second spinal fusion was performed by Dr. Rajpal. The immediate recovery (first 6 weeks) was much superior to my first operation. support from the P.A.s and other staff was excellent. All appointments we completed on time with minimal waiting. - H.T
Great experience. Came in with chronic pain and feel much better after my discectomy. Highly recommend Dr V. - B.G
Great experience. Came in with chronic pain and feel much better after my discectomy. Highly recommend Dr V. - B.G
As a result of a car accident, I had injuries to my cervical spine that caused a significant amount of pain, numbness and dexterity problems I was very fortunate to have been treated by Dr. V. The injury repair required two surgeries in which my c5-7 were plated in the front and two rods in the back. Dr. V has brought me back to a baseline of functioning well and little to no pain. I truly feel very lucky to have been treated by him. He is the best. - L.B
Informative, detailed with explanations compassionate - Marie Mathis
4month follow up visit with doctor V was very good. All my questions were answered, and he discussed next steps in my recovery. - L.A
I am very happy with Dr. V medical training and his work on my C-spine October 2018 my lumbar in June 2019 he his a superior neurosurgeon as well as it orthopedic surgeon I .have search this man out for over two years on the Internet . I personally visited other people that he operated on and they said he was exceptional itís been my experience that is true ,I would recommend him to anyone for C-Spire and L spine surgery in the Boulder ,Denver metro area.I also visited two other neurosurgeons and said they would not work on my C-spine and I would not get any relief I find that to be false statements I am recovering better and better each and every day ,I think Dr. V did an exceptional job on my c spine, and have lived with pain for over 40 years and no other doctor could correct this. - F.P
Received good guidance and input from Dr. Rajpal that enabled me to make an informed decision. My recovery lasted less time than I expected and I'm now a back to a normal activity level after only six months. The surgery resolved not only my acute issues by some of the issues I've been having for 20 years that I didn't know were associated with my cervical Spine. Thank you! - S.G
My Lumbar Spine Laminectomy and Spinal Fusion of L4-L5 with Dr.Rajpal could not have been a greater success. I am now pain-free and am not taking any prescriptions, or OTC medications for pain! I feel great! Vicky on Dr. Rajpal's team was a wealth of information both pre and post-surgery. Both Dr. Rajpal and Vicky could not have been nicer, or more supportive throughout my pre-surgery, surgery and post-surgery processes. - W.Freese
Everything went well. Preparing for the surgery, in the surgery room, after surgery. Although there was pain immediately after and from the surgery, mostly what seemed like neck muscle pain, the most striking thing was I no longer felt pain in my left shoulder, arm, or hand. - Mark Anderson
Awesome, complete relief of all pains that I had before surgery. Not sure I could ask for more. - James Grieme
Came in for review of MRI MRI due to tumor found when I has previous issues with bleeding in my eyes and headaches. The doctor thoroughly explained where the tumor was located and what my treatment options are. I feel confident that I understand and have made the best decision I can at this time - H.B
I appreciate everyone's help and had a good experience. Thank you DR Rajpal and Vickie for helping me. - D.G
Everything has gone amazingly smooth. I am free a half a lifetime's worth of pain and I have never felt better! - D.W
I was very happy with my visit. Allen and Alex were very happy with my progress from my surgery. They carefully thought out my personal details. - D.P
My entire experience with the staff from pre-surgery to post-op was great. Everything was clearly explained and the surgery experience was exactly as described. My chronic back pain is gone and my only regret was that I waited so long to have the surgery. - A.L
100% satisfied with the Dr and staff. Great results and excellent communication with Rajpal and staff Glad I had him do my surgery. - M.E

This is my second lumbar fusion since 2013. The second surgery was due to being rear ended twice. I had fabulous results from the first surgery with Dr Villavicencio. I am 2 weeks out from the second surgery with Dr Villavicencio and already my pre surgery symptoms are much better. - Suzanne Kuolt
Doing much better after the surgery. I'm glad I chose Dr Rajpal as a surgeon for this critical surgery. - K.S
Everyone is always so helpful at this office, the staff take time to listen and seem to always ask the right questions. If I ever need to have surgery again I would come back in a heartbeat. - S.Cruthers
Have had multiple surgeries with doctor Villavicencio with great success and would rate him as one of top neurosurgeons in USA. ' - Billy Rugg
The experience is absolutely wonderful - A.P
Very happy with speed and care that everyone showed thank you very much - G.G
I injured my back from a skydiving accident in 2018 and underwent lumbar fusion the same day. Thanks to Dr. Beasley and her wonderful staff, I am now back to doing everything I did before the accident and the surgery helped me get back to the same life full of adventure and activity that I had before. I would highly recommend their services. Thank you Dr. Beasley!!!! - Kush Tiwary
I am very pleased with the care and results of my 2 spinal surgeries. I would highly recommend Dr Rajpal for any spinal issues - G.M
I have now had 3 spinal surgeries with Dr. V, two multi-joint lumbar fusions and a more recent cervical fusion. I have had multiple previous surgeries on other joints, but remain able to be active largely because my spine, despite now 7 joint fusions, seems to be in as good a condition as could be hoped for. I am immensely impressed with the skill of Dr. V, very lucky to have had him for my recent spinal surgeries, and will be forever grateful for his efforts on my behalf. - Dave Fritts
Well Alan letís start with Megan. First you saved her life and then you were involved with her rehab! You let her rebuild your bike as an exercise that she really enjoyed and it was very good for her.Then you had several swim races with her and then she finally beat you (she was a state champion swimmer before the accident). You had to do 4 surgeries on her headóyour not just good your great and my family will always be in your debt.I then crushed my vertebrae and you were my first and only choice!Thanks,!,!! - P.H
I had a fusion of my lower back. I had a fist sitting on my static nerve and Dr V removed the cost and fused my back in that area. The surgery was very successful my pain which was severe was gone As soon as the surgery was over. The doctor and his team took really good care of me. I am 9 months after the surgery and everything is doing well. I would recommend this Dr and his team highly. - J.Stevenson
I was in severe pain and had limited use of my left leg prior to surgery. Post surgery I am pain free and have complete use of left leg. My experience with Dr Rajpal and the staff has been a wonderful experience. Thank you - K.W

I am 81 and had serious neck surgery. Dr. Rajpal was excellent with explaining all the details how long I would be in pain and he was exactly on. The surgery was very frightening for me but he helped me feel at peace. He really cares and is excellent surgeon. Thank you so much. If you face spine surgery you can't find a more caring and excellent surgeon. - P.M

They are top notch, best team ever.Once again, thank you for a new improved life.That - Y.R

I had a great experience working with Dr. Villavicencio. I had a disc replacement in January. My symptoms have resolved and I am back to doing everything without restriction. - Mary Walker
I came to Dr. V on the recommendation of a friend who had had a back operation performed by him and was very pleased with the results. Dr. V. examined my MRI and told me that surgery was all that was left as a choice for me. We met a couple of times, discussed what what would be involved, approximate amount of time I would be in surgery, length of time in hospital an rehab afterwards. He stressed the potential difficulties I might face during a lengthy recovery period because of my age and the amount of work he would be doing to fuse the disks and put in rods,etc. I had the surgery on January 7, 2019 and, today, 3.5 months later, I am driving, taking care of myself, walking, and exercising with PT instructor. I noticed, as soon as I recovered from the anesthesia, that the severe pain I had been experiencing was gone and I just had the surgery pain. I was on pain meds, small doses, for about three weeks and Tylenol only since then. I canít thank Dr. V enough for giving me back a much better quality of life. He is a wonderful surgeon and I have been and will continue to tell my friends about him and his great staff. His PA, Eric Bush, is also to be thanked for taking time to talk with me and answer my many questions. - Mary Jane.C
Excellent. Spent time with you answering questions without feeling you are rushed. The staff were equally helpful - Marcia Murphy

Dr Rajpal came highly recommended by numerous doctors, physical therapist, and nurses i talked to leading up to the surgery. I asked everyone I thought might have an opinion about Dr. Rajpal. Also, when at Avista hospital, seeing other doctors, I asked people in the lunchroom about him. Not one had anything but high regard for him, and interesting to me, they all seemed to know who he was.Dr Rajpal's Physician's Assistant Vickie and Nurse Practitioner Jen are informative, communicative and excellent to work with. All have excellent bedside manner. Wonderful team. I like his comment before surgery: I have never messed up one of these surgeries and don't plan on changing that this morning.This was my second back surgery in January. First surgery 20 years ago. My back can be described as a war zone and all of results have be very good. Still healing. Support through first 12 weeks has been excellent both from follow-up visits and communication via patient portal. I was interested to find out before surgery and the day of surgery from the tech, that it is routine that BNA to use a third party to do spinal cord and nerve monitoring. This service checks the connectivity and electrical flow from brain to back to extremities. Likely done with most spine surgeries, but nice to know.I would recommend Dr. Rajpal and his team. Avista hospital team topshelf as well. - T.M
I had a spinal fusion done in Dec, the procedure went well I had a very easy recovery,very little pain. - C.Z
I feel that my back fusion will get better as time heals, doctor Villavicencio is both professional an kind, I liked him and his staff. - R.P
Dr V and team did an L5/S1 fusion in December. The procedure went very well. The hospital staff was awesome. My wife and I did feel that the expectations around the surgery were set a little low; we both thought Iíd be back to it in about 6 weeks. We could have heard what we wanted, but it took until the first follow up appointment until it was clear to us that this would be a much lengthier recovery. Post surgery, when I had concerns I called the office and spoke to the on call without any issues or delays. The office staff has been wonderful, especially in dealing with insurance paperwork. - B.H
I came to Dr V with severe pain in my back and weakness in my legs. Since my surgery in March 2018, l am doing much better, getting stronger in my legs and only have aches in my back when I over exert. - Ernest Moon
Laminectomy with decompression went well. Recovery was great. - R.G
The best best - D.Q
Staff and doc were great about interpreting my MRI results and surgical options despite delays in getting MRI results. Dr Beasley was very clear about my options. Clearly she and her staff are very caring. - C.H
I was suffering from extreme lower back and leg pain. Dr Villavicenzia and his staff diagnosed me quickly, and performed the surgery for the herniated disc in a timely manner. The relief from pain was immediate, and I can walk upright again. Amazing. - S.K
Dr V did a 2 level fusion in my lower neck to stabilize vertebra that were impinging on my spinal cord. Pain in my neck was immediately reduced, and even increasing lower back pain was significantly relieved. Dr V and assistant Alex were outstanding. They spent a lot of time with me to thoroughly explain my issues and why fusion was the only real solution. They were pleasant and personable but, most importantly, highly experienced and competent. I highly recommend Dr V and staff. - T.Pariseau
I had back surgery removal of old hardware and new hardware on new levels Iíve had an amazing experience with Dr. V and his team they have been very straight forward with me and have done everything they told me they would do Iím 3 months out in recovery and doing well. I would and will recommend Dr. V to everyone looking for a wonderful surgeon. Thank you Dr. V and staff for taking such good care of me! - D.H
I have been dealing with R radial nerve pain for 4 years, which restricted my piano playing. The piano is my retirement hobby, and I am advanced player. We scheduled surgery for the radial nerve. Eric thought we could do a disc replacement C6-C7. Five days before the scheduled surgery I met with Alex, who said I needed a double fusion of C5-C6 and C6-C7. V agreed. So thatís what we did. This change in strategy went from minor to major surgery and so I got my daughter to come home for the surgery. It was clear very after surgery that it had worked. Then suddenly my left pinkie lost strength. Alex thought it would resolve and it did in January. I did see a hand specialist but Iím not sure how valuable it was. I have numbness in my right hand, which may be due to carpal tunnel. The surgery went well. The office is very responsive to questions. I will continue to take my flawed body to this practice. Thank you. - L.S
I am very pleased with the excellent attention received from Dr. Beasley and all her team. Thank you so much. - J.G
I'm very satisfied and very appreciate of kindness of skills of staff. I feel very confident and you made it very comfortable for me. - L.L
Dr. Rajpal was wonderful! I could not have asked for a better surgeon. He always took time to listen to me and answer my questions. Now I know why he was so highly recommended. I experienced no pain after the surgery. Before the surgery, I was unable to stand upright because of the pain. Now I am standing upright and walking with no poles. Thank you Dr. Rajpal! - Linda Hackathorn
Very pleased with the results and the staff. - Steve Maras
A very positive experience. Needed a long difficult fusion. The entire staff readily answered questions , to prepare me for a major back surgery. I experienced several setbacks post operative. The surgical team was always available when I needed them .I trusted the team. After many years of chronic pain, I am finding relief. I would highly recommend Dr. V and his team for their honesty, integrity, and professional ethics.I owe them for my new lease on a pain free life. - G.M

From my very first call and every subsequent contact with Dr. Rajpal and the staff at Boulder Neurological, I want to say how grateful I am. The entire experience has been both helpful and healing. The kind and experienced staff are a great asset and are true to the term "Teamwork". The surgery was successful. Most important to me is the fact that, after many,many years of limited mobility and constant pain, I'm able to live a virtually pain free life AND now, finally, I can Dance again! - Jill.F

Severe back pain before surgery interfering with my usual activities especially hiking. I wanted to consult the best doctor. After doing some research I chose Dr. V. I had cervical spine surgery for pinched nerves and then three months later had surgery to correct my scoliosis. Three months later I now have mild discomfort relievedWith Tylenol. Excellent experience with his staff and with hospital and rehabilitation care. Iím glad I had surgery and know I will be hiking again soon. - Lynn.E

On 4 feb 2019 had a microdiscectomy (L4-L5 & L5-S1) at Exempla surgery center. Staff and prep experience leading up to it was wonderful, esp given short time window. Day of surgery: admission very smooth by Emma, very good care by Darla before and after surgery. Immediate pain relief in recovery- no more muscle spasms and cramping. That has continued to be the case since. Excellent followup by Dr V, Darla, Eric. I am so thankful to all of you for giving me back my mobility and resumption of my daily life. You are a top notch provider. And Iím telling everyone who asks what a great thing did for me, both in 2013 and now. Thank you! - Randy Bender
Today was my three month follow up to decompression surgery of C6/C7 vertebrae. I saw Alex and Dr V. Today and we thoroughly reviewed my status, and X-rays. Dr. V. Determined I needed to use a bone stimulator to further assist with my healing process. A second follow up was scheduled for three months. The entire process of pre surgery work up, surgery and follow up has been handled exceptionally well. I am profoundly grateful. - M.Hendry
Awesome. Everyone was so friendly. - G.Morton
No pain for the future - J.M
I was in constant pain in my neck and shoulders for years following a bicycling accident. My shoulders, neck and mid back went into spasm with almost all activity. Even sleep could set off pain that radiated down my shoulder and thoracic spine, making even breathing hurt. I had seen pain doctors and tried injections and radio frequency to get some relief. I finally decided that no matter how much I wanted to avoid surgery, I needed to see a neurosurgeon in hopes that something could be done. I researched extensively and found that Dr. Villavicencio was voted #1 in the nation neurosurgeon that year! I knew that, surgery or not, Dr. V was the doctor I wanted to talk to. Dr Villavicencio looked at my MRI and was concise in his diagnosis. I donít know how to put it, but as he looked at my films I could almost see him analyzing. He didnít waste time, and I donít see that as a negative; I appreciated his direct explanation of my problem. The rest of the story is summed up with ďRelief!Ē. I had surgery as soon as I could get on his schedule, and my whole life-style changed. With very little caution, my life is not dictated by whether or not I can take a deep breath anymore. There is no other surgeon I would trust with my spine and I recommend Dr V to anyone with back or neck pain. - A.L
This was absolutely the best outcome I could ever have imagined. My entire life has improved by 100 percent. I would recommend this to anyone that needs this procedure. - P.B
Follow up from surgery on Dec. 7 2018. I feel great. Shooting pain in right leg is GONE! Very happy about that. Back flips are still a little stiff, but improving. ?? - M.Kulik

My experience was nothing but great! The staff are very nice and outgoing,and the service was amazing. - N.W
I saw Dr. Rajpal to help decipher if the pain I was having was from the Spine or Hip. I had a 5 level fusion a number of years ago and he analysed the condition and confirmed that my problem at this time is from the hips. I was pleased to find a neurosurgeon as my Dr. had passed and I had no idea where to go. I am hoping not to need spinal help in the future but I am relieved to find a Dr. I have trust in who now has my records and I have confidence in his ability to help me in the future. I would definitively recommend Dr. Rajpal for concerns about the spine. Ellyn Meister - E.M
Caring facility. - E.H
Satisfactory, very little pain, discomfort. - N.L
Dr Rajpal answered all of my questions before my neck surgery including if surgery was my best option for my cervical stenosis diagnosis.

He will address them all. - J.C

Good experience all around: short wait time, Dr. was thorough and professional, and provided clear explanation - F.H
Past failed surgeries from others in lumbar region prevented me from my active lifestyle due to pain and frustration for several years including opioid addictions etcAfter months of soul searching and meeting with specialists to see my options I was very fortunate to have found the Staff here at Boulder Neurosurgical and Dr Villviencio.

Back surgery with Dr. VExperience was excellent - W.Harris
Dr. V performed my L5/S1 fusion surgery in Dec. 2016. It was an outpatient surgery with me in and out in about 23 hours. For 5 years I dealt with excruciating back pain from spondylolisthesis. I tried every option available to help my symptoms but ultimately decided to have surgery. Dr. V and Alex were very patient explaining the process to me and even the ladies that worked in the front office were available to help when I had questions. Before surgery I was only walking about 2000 steps a day. 11 months after surgery I was walking 10 miles a day through India & Europe! The quality of life I have been given back is 100 times better than before. I knew going in that I had to maintain a healthy lifestyle and continue strength training or else no amount of surgery would fix poor habits. Both Dr. V and Alex stress maintaining a healthy lifestyle and you can tell they care about their patients. I would 100% do this surgery again (good thing I donít need to) and would highly recommend them and this clinic. This was the absolute best decision, to have Dr V perform my surgery and I canít thank him enough for saving my quality of life. - T.E
We are very happy with the service, surgery results are excellent . Thank you so much! - g.K
Had been struggling with lower back issues for decades. I tried many modalities which worked for awhile until they didn't. Back fusion is a big deal and though not easy today I am pain free and have resumed an active lifestyle. - C.M

One year ago Dr. V did a spinal fusion on three vertebrae in my neck to correct a stenosis. As a result, there is no pain, no tingling, and no weakness. I have minor range of motion issues, but have no major difficulty moving. I am confident l am on my way to a complete recovery. A job very well done. Thanks to all!!!m - Tom Lyons
Generally good. Recovery time longer than expected - Anthony Garrett

Dr. V and every one here are awesome! Thank you so much. - Gordon Dewart
I have been seeing team V for about 3 years. Prior to coming here I had seen 3 other surgeons for opinions. I had some one recommend that I bring my son to Dr V with a neck problem. Based on my sons experience I knew Dr V was the Doc for my back issue as well. What a great choice, when it got time for surgery I fit into the Limiflex study. Surgery was a total success at this point which is the 3 month mark and I couldnít be happier. Without a doubt I highly recommend team V. Dr. Villavicencio is an excellent surgeon and my back doc for life. - K.M
Wonderful - N.L

Alex is very thorough in his explanations,using models of the spine to show me what is going on. He has helped me understand the scoliosis in my back and what is happening with my discs. - A.D
Overall very good. I liked the franknes and depth of information and discussion during our visit. It doesn't always happen that way, which under some circumstances can be difficult and distressing. I felt it was a reasonably comfortable appointment and I appreciate that. It wasn't warm and fuzzy, but it was sound information, expressed frankly and openly. I need those qualities in my medical care at the moment. - B.D
I feel the surgery and post op experience has gone well. The staff has done a great job and are all very helpful. - S.A
I met Dr. Rajpal to discuss a 2-level fusion. I was given several other surgeons to meet with, but I felt so good with Rajpal, I went with him. I got a new MRI and ended up needing a 3-level fusion, between C-4,5,6, and 7. The surgery went great! I was amazed how I could get along after such a serious surgery. Rajpal came and visited me the day after surgery in the hospital and I already felt relief from the pain I had been experiencing. It's now been 6 weeks post surgery and I get to take my neck brace off... so excited to be getting back to normal but without the pain I had been experiencing over the past 6 years. Rajpal and his PA's Vickie and Emily are life-changers, and his staff is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend him with all my heart. - Susan.W
I Think you guys are the best. The doctor and the whole team should be set as an example for the whole Nation . Your practice should be set as the Nations Sample for all the Medical professions and arenas so they come and observe and learn how to treat patients the right way and how to make them feel special and taken care of. You guys are the best, keep up the great work. - N.K
Fusion of lower spine November 2016. - D.G
I originally broke my back at 8 years old falling out of a tree and it never fully healed. After 45 years it had shifted to 13 mm at L5 -S1. Even with this, I still lived a very active life. Rock climbing, skiing, cycling and driving race cars. The biggest turning point was a foot drag in the beginning of 2017 and the unbearable pain that had built over the years. It is still difficult to talk about. I did another round of physical therapy and the therapist said, ďif you had a broken arm, you would fix it. You have a broken back, if you are looking for me to tell you to not do the procedure, I canít ď.In November of 2017 Dr V and his team did an L5-S1 decompression and fusion. The difference was unbelievable. The very next day. I slept for the first time in years. For me the feeling in my legs alone was like going from black and white TV to Color. It has now been a year and things are looking ever better. I still have some symptoms from waiting so long, though that was my choice! Dr V and his team are extraordinary. I am truly thankful for being given a second chance with a much higher quality of life . - Todd Peterson
Started w awful stenosis, stooped posture, numb feet & lower leg. Couldn't walk more than a couple hundred steps. After surgery numbness receded, now only @ night, which vanishes after walking a bit. Started walking 8-10 days after surgery; up to ~5000 steps/day. Gained an inch in height (no stooping) & off all pain medication; no NSAIDs, gabapentin, no medical marijuana. - W.S
Since surgery have not had one bit of pain in my feet, leg, butt, back etc---none. The only discomfort I've had was in my stomach. Probably from the tight back brace- but that's been sporadic and now gone. Quality of care, and entire staff, were excellent. Feeling great! - E.C
I had fusion of L4,L5 and S1. Dr Rajpal and his team were very professional and this has been a very good experience. I had very little pain after surgery and now have full function of my back.

My experience was excellent,I came to Dr. V with severe pain in my right arm and neck and today the pain is gone. Dr. V was able to work with my schedule and get me in quickly, and that was beneficial because my wife and I were living out of the USA and needed to return soon to Africa.The staff here has also been very accommodating and helpful throughout the process. I would recommend Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates to anyone with similar health problems. - Danny McCollor
I was suffering from back pain and leg pain before my surgery and was very limited in my activities. I am in my 4th month post surgery and feel great. Dr.Villavicencio did a awesome job repairing my back. I had 3 fusion, 2 rods and about 8 screws put in my back to fix it. I feel great and am looking forward to getting back to my favorite activities like biking, hiking, kayaking and gardening. Dr. V gave me my life back. Heís my hero. - D.V
I had a disc replacement in my neck. From beginning to end, everyone was amazing. Iím very active and Dr. V did the research to get an artificial disc that would hold up to my lifestyle. Eric and Alex were always easy to talk to and exchange information with. - M.H

Excellent - L.s
Dr. V performed a successful lumbar fusion in 2012 T12-L5 and remained mostly pain free until May 2017 when I torqued my back when I was on a bowling league. Physical therapy did not reduce the pain. Dr. V performed another successful fusion surgery L5-S1 in August 2017 . Recovery went well and now fourteen months later my back has healed and free of any pain. I have regained my strength and able to move about freely without fear of pain. I am smarter now when it comes to bending and twisting.Thank you Dr. V and staff for making me whole again! - Dennis.E
I had a spinal fusion of L4 and L5 and a laminectomy. Before surgery I had been in pain for a few years. It hurt to stand up or walk. I quit most physical activity due to the pain. I was losing strength and feeling in my left leg. Now I'm feeling great and walking half a mile a day. I'm very happy and grateful. - R.G
Went in to find out what can me done about my essential tremors. The Doctor and staff were fantastic and very kind. - W.s
Pre operatively, I was in constant pain in my legs and low back, and was very limited in normal daily activities, and duties around the house and yard. I had a 3-level lumbar spinal fusion on July 12, 2018 by Dr. Rajpal. I anticipated much more pain and post op incapacity than I actually experienced. I was very pleasantly surprised. I did go to rehab for a week post hospitalization and began very mild exercise and therapy which was one of the keys to my success, in my opinion. I have been very faithful doing ALL my therapy - particularly leg and core strengthening , along with using the bone growth stimulator as prescribed daily. I no longer have any leg pain, no difficulty sitting for as long as needed, and other than a little stiffness in my low back - which I expected, I feel so much better. I am able to do more of my usual activities at the 3 month mark.I feel that Dr. Rajpal and his staff have been excellent to work with, always answering questions, and keeping me on track in my recovery. He and Vicki were very encouraging to me from the first visit and continue to be so. I would certainly recommend them to anyone considering a similar procedure. - Mary.Z
T8-T9 discectomy and fusion. Everyone was super helpful and professional. - E.V
Pinched nerve relieved and L4/L5 fused. Leg pain relief was immediate, and muscles ached for a few months while nerves got back to doing their work properly. I am extremely pleased with the results. I had been using a cane more and more over the past 5 years and it is now put away. - R.H
I had severe sciatic pain and was recommended for an epidural that was not effective. I then came here for an evaluation and surgery. - J.P

I am SO fortunate to have been appointed w/BNS in early 2000s for removal of tumor on my spinal cord. Then fusion to L 3-4 in 2017 then fusion to L2-5 in 2018. My pain prior to these surgeries was intense and difficult to explain to my primary physician; fortunately I was referred to BNS! My entire experience with BNS was exceptional- the receptionists, the PA and ofcourse the surgeon were pleasant, professional and helpful In every matter and circumstance. I write this note as I sit in BNS office with a cup of coffee remembering the days that I could hardly walk to the exam room. I AM TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THE SPECIFIC CARE TO MY PAIN AND MY LIFE STYLE...I AM A BSN, RN SINCE 1973. My nursing career has included working in neurotrauma units, urgent care, internal medicine office, home care and long term care; I am exposed to medical care, patients and personalities constantly. Today is my 3 month post-op check...I have personal and professional experiences which emphasize my compliments to the BNS team-thank you. - C.D
Scheduled appointment based on reference from another patient. Lower back pain, numbness, and muscle weakness in left leg.From the very first visit, the front staff, PAs, and Dr. V have been outstanding. Clear explanations of issues and options, sought my input and opinions on options, agreed on conservative approach which worked for me in this case. Had 3-4 visits in which the professionals were friendly, informative and helpful. Would definitely recommend to others, - T.E
It was brief but complete. Eric did a thorough physical evaluation, and was aware of earlier issues. We also went over the X-rays and he explained what he could see. Overall it was Avery satisfactory follow up. - J.W
I felt that my issues were addressed and I was always listening to my concerns. The staff is very friendly and we were treated well. - S.R
My spinal fusion surgery over a decade ago was a life altering miracle. It eliminated almost constant pain. In fact, the first sensation I noticed within seconds of regaining consciousness in recovery was the pain was gone. I have not had the same pain since. - R.O
We found Dr.V by googling ďbest neural surgeon in ColoradoĒ. Everything we have experienced with Dr.V and his office has convinced us that ďthe best surgeon Ē statement is totally accurate. It has been 10 weeks since Dr. V did surgery for a fusion at L4 & L5. Every aspect of our interaction with Dr.V and his staff has been wonderful. One doesnít think of a surgery as being a positive experience but mine definitely has. It is not only the relief from the debilitating pain that I have had for several years that is wonderful, but it is also working with professional and caring people. Dr.V is not only an extraordinarily talented surgeon he is also a truly nice guy. His staff also reflects the incredibly high professional standards set by Dr.V. We canít mention everyone by name but Eric and Alex the two PAís we spent a lot of time with are totally awesome. The office staff from surgery scheduling to front office support has been been very responsive in every situation. I have met multiple people that have had the same or similar surgeries by Dr.V and without exception they were as pleased with their experience as I have been by mine. We tell everyone we know and care about to contact Dr.Vís office if the are experiencing a problem that may benefit from surgery. - G.C
Surgery went well and follow up even better. Thank you so much everyone for my excellent care. - V.B
Had a good result from my surgery to correct my spinal stenosis. This surgery corrected the discomfort I had from headaches, shoulder pain, numbness in arms and hands and inability to lift my arms over my head. Range of motion was improved also. The process was explained and I had no surprises. Although the neck brace is cumbersome it is necessary evil. I was pleased to feel immediate relief right a after the surgery. I am looking forward to a healthy and active retirement. - P.M
Overall good experience still in chronic pain hoping she can take care of that for me - J.P
Best experience I've ever had they gave me my life back no more pain no more depression thank you so much - K.A
Not that surgery is ever great, but was looking forward to it and am extremely pleased with the results. All of the staff at both office locations and at the surgery center were excellent and very professional and helpful. - J.K
In for a consult. All staff was personal and informative. Thank you. - C.P
Excellent doctor and staff - L.B
Iíve been a patient of doctor V. For just over 2 years and never had a bad experience. His staff is amazing and they all have taken part in changing my life and getting me back on my feet. - Christopher.I
When I originally came to Dr V and staff some years ago, I had some serious arthritis in my cervical spine which had previously been fused 10-12 yrs earlier. Now I was having recurring issues with much more arthritis and great discomfort in my cervical spine. Dr V, along with his stellar team of very human (never condescending, never ego driven, patient, never ďholier than thouĒ) PAs, Alex & Eric, LOVE what they do and it shows each and every time I meet with them. Providing clear and detailed explanations for my information and comfort level is their standard. Dr V and his team performed multiple levels of fusions on my aging and arthritic cervical spine with very little to no angst on my part. Finally, I had relief! I felt so respected and cared for before, during and after, what could have been a traumatic event and had a great recovery with their guiding care. Each and every time I have had an appt with Dr V, Alex or Eric, I leave feeling that I have a new outlook on my bodyís health and longevity, and knowing that I have had the absolute best care possible. I so appreciate their (all staff from front desk to scheduling, researching, PAs and Dr V) incredible and usual sense ofcaring, patience and humor-not to mention life changing skills, as they were in my lifeline- YA! Thank you Dr V and staff, you so rock and I am ever grateful for you!! - C.M
I met with Dr Villavicencio who prescribed MRI & X-ray of my back & PT. I have been doing pt 2x / wk,Pilates 2x / wk & my pain is MUCH improved. I walk most days & play golf with little to no discomfort.I met with Alex to review my images & understand whatís happening. I am very pleased with the direction I was given from both the Dr & the PA. - C.C
Was great!! We are so happy with BNA!! They are honest and very forthcoming with there service and expectations. The staff is very friendly and helpful, putting the patients first. - J.H
Everything has been excellent. Everyone has been friendly and professional. - J.P
Experience has been great. Dr.V & Alex have been the best, helped me through my difficult time and fixed my problem. Canít thank you both enough. - Larry Maurer
My experience here has restored my life! From the Initial Appointments to the surgery to the checkups my health has been the foremost concern. And I could not be happier with the results and the attention to detail. Wonderful!! - C.G
Excellent. The surgery took longer than expected. I was able to stand straight almost immediately. I would have liked one additional day in the hospital so that I felt a little stronger before I went to rehab. I have felt so much better, but recovery is taking longer than I expected. - Jane Rosendahl

I came to see Dr. V for lower sine issues and sciatica. He recommended lower spine fusion. In May the procedure was performed. Since the surgery the pain in my legs is gone, and although I have some stiffness in my lower back, everything seems to be returning to normal as it can from the surgery. Pain in lower back is gone. I sleep without issues. Am back to some of my regular routine. This is all after 13weeks after surgery. So glad I had surgery done, and Dr. V and the staff at the clinic have been wonderful. - H.W
I had my level c4-c5 fused. It was considered an emergency surgery as my hands had suddenly weakened to the point that I could not squeeze my hands. The surgery went well and I immediately regained full use of my hands. My recovery went well and I couldnít be more pleased. - M.C
My total experience was excellent with results beyond my expectations. - L.L
My experience has been unbelievable! Everything from meeting with Dr. Sharad about diagnosis in the beginning to now. I am 6 weeks post surgery and he told me that today I can give up the collar! The office people and the whole experience went so smoothly and with a great outcome! I am very very happy today and I am thankful for such a great surgeon! - J.S
Had spine fusion at L3-L4,T-lift, and decompression for spinal stenosis. Dr Rajpal, Vicki, Erika, and staff have been great to work with. Before surgery was in pain to the point I couldn't even walk to the restroom. I spent all of my time on the couch because the pain was so intense. I am now eight weeks out from surgery and I'm in no pain. I am able to walk again and I am starting to be able to do normal everyday activities (such as walking) with no pain. I am incorporating other daily activities, that are normally taken for granted back into my daily activities. Very excited now for my future. I give Dr Rajpal and staff a 5 star rating and would recommend them to anyone needing this type of care.Thank you all for giving me my life back. So very grateful.Bill White - W.W
My experience with Boulder Neurosurgery has been great. I have always felt that I was in competent hands throughout the office visits, the surgery, and recovery. There were no surprises, and that gave me peace of mind and helped keep me stay calm and relaxed. Erika was always very patient in answering my questions and explained her answers completely. I hove never to have neurosurgery again, but if I need to I would not hesitate to ask for Rr. Rajpal and Erika again. - J.B
Microdiscectomy performed on L5/S1. Now 6 months post op and doing most activities without pain. PT is key for months 3-6. Do not rush recovery. Begin with walking as pain allows. Overall happy about the out come. Only issue was post op catheter insertion. Staff at the operating facility needs supplies and better training - M.F
It was awesome. Microdiskectomy and it went perfectly. I can walk and sit normally again. It was quick, I was out the same day. In a few days the tenderness from the incision went down and by 2 weeks I was at 90% - P.S
Alex was very informative and explained everything in common understanding words. Dr. V asked questions about how things were going and if anything has gotten better or worse since the last time or from the surgery. - J.D
Amazing!!! I can walk again. Had back pain for almost 40 years. My problems have been resolved. Had wonderful care and amazing results.. - S.S
Both Lyn and I were very pleased with all aspects of our appointment. Getting the answers to our questions and to see and here the enthusiasm you have for this treatment and your work, in general, puts us at ease. Thank you for taking so much time to explain everything in such detail. This will be a big factor in the decision we have to make. Pete Worner - P.W
Dr. Beasley was very professional and skillful. All of the staff with whom I interacted were wonderful. Thank you! - Z.L
Everyone was very nice. Dr. Beasley was great with explaining the performed procedure undertaken at Longmont United on 8/6/18. - M.B
I spent most of last summer in bed due to back pain and sciatica. This summer I biked, boated, hiked, gardened, and climbed rock. No pain anywhere. My family and I are thrilled. - A.K
I A m very happy with my procedure. I no longer have any pain. I have been released. I am very Plsase with Dr, V. and Eric for a job well done. - D.W

Excellent service and attitude. Outcome of treatment has matched prior estimates, and exceeded them in some areas. - D.T
Excellent! Lumbar fusion surgery by Dr V 2 years ago and going strong. 68 y.o. And on feet 10 hour shift at Longmont Humane Society w/no back pain at all. Dr. V excels in spinal surgery (L4&5) and Eric& Alex P.A.s are pleasant and knowledgeable and perfect additions to Dr Vs expertise. Front desk also pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend.

Surgery 8/28/17; revision surgery 8/2/18. Both Surgeries seemed to go well. Easier time swallowing immediately after second surgery. Lot of swelling throat both surgeries. - B.L
I came here to get relief from low back pain, my pain was very severe and was untreatable with other pain relief methods. I needed a fusion in the lumbar area at 3 levels. This was a very intensive procedure for me but I was treated very good and so far the surgery was very successful and would like to thank everybody on Dr. Vís team for taking care of me. I will not go anywhere else to have any back procedure performed. - A.H
I had a fantastic experience from the day I met Dr Rajpal! That day he encouraged me to seek alternative treatments before jumping into surgery. I had a toddler at the time and surgery would have been extremely difficult to go through and still be a mom. I was able to buy 3 years with his suggested treatments and allow my son to become older and more independent. Eventually there was no more waiting, I was ready for my Spinal Fusion. Dr Rajpal's team is very professional, they all worked hard to help me understand every step of the process before and after surgery. The day of surgery went smooth and the aftercare has been wonderful, I couldn't ask for anything better!I would refer Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine to all my friends and family!! - T.H
I had a herniated L5 / S1 disk and was treated with a steroid injection prior to meeting with Dr. V. The injection helped for a couple of weeks and I started physical therapy. The leg and buttocks pain returned and I asked my primary care provider, Dr. Camarata for a spine surgeon reference. In April Dr. recommended and completed a micro disectomy which provided immediate relief of the leg pain. Unfortunately I re-herniated while sleeping and went through the steroid injection again with the same short relief result. I consulted again with Dr. V and chose to have a lower L5 / S1 lumbar infusion and lift. Prior to the procedure I could no longer walk or sit for more then a few minutes. After the fusion procedure I can now walk and sit as long as I like and have zero leg and buttocks pain. - J.U
Everything was good - D.S
Best decision I ever made for neck fusion with Dr V. I am so pleased with its outcome after two years and have resumed normal activities after 2 years including dancing. - Marian Clark
Quick meetings with adequate time to discuss my problem and the solution. I felt comfortable with the solution and the surgeon and staff. - W.F

Endured 1 year of extreme sciatic pain before finding Dr Vís group.Needed an L4 - L5 fusion. Have had no pain since the moment I woke from surgery.Very skilled team, treated wonderfully from the 1st appointment to the last.I have my life back. - D.L
Dr. Rajpal came highly recommended and I understand why. I suffered with stenosis and sciatica to the point where I could barely stand or walk for more than 5-10 minutes. Immediately after surgery, when I first stood up and walked, the pain was gone. Three months post-surgery, I'm feeling better all the time. - C.S
Was treated and taken care of very professionally - R.W
My experience has been great. Since I started being treated here, all Dr. V and his staff have been wonderful and very attentive to my health care. - J.S
After the initial shock of the critical diagnosis, I was encouraged by the outcome. I am feeling very little pain after 6 weeks. My major battle was about shedding the effects of the anesthesia and pain meds on my digestive system. Hereís looking forward to physical therapy and a full recovery. - J.R
The level of care and concern as been exceptional! Dr. Rajpal and Ericka have been very thorough in pre and post operation care and getting over all the humps and bumps of this surgery. I would highly recommend them to all who are looking for an totally exceptional care. - J.S
Exceptional caring, courteous and knowledgeable staff support. We believed that this significantly adds to the healing process. We tell everyone we talk to regarding the surgery experience how awesome Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates has been to work with and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you. - G.C
Dr V and his staff are professional, kind and knowledgeable. My surgery was successful as I am walking and sitting with no nerve pain 12 days post op for the first time in 7 months! - S.M
Dr. Went over everything and explained to me. Even showed me my images while explaining the issues and non issues. - R.R
I have been under the care of Eric Busch, PA-C and Dr. Villavicencio, MD for 5 years (pre-surgery & post surgery). I had back issues starting in my early 20's up until the July 2016 surgery. It progressed over many years to the point that I was receiving surgical injections in my L4/L5 region in order to relieve the severe pain that I was enduring. I was to the point that I could not walk, sit, stand, or even lay in bed comfortably. I was in constant severe pain 24/7. It got to a point that the surgical injections were not working. It was decided that the next step would entail a fusion back surgery which I received in July 2016. Post surgery was the beginning of my journey back to a happy fulfilling life once again. Since surgery; I have been able to enjoy my life with my family and friends all pain-free. If I suffer another back issue I will not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Villavicencio. Him and his staff at Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates are the best! I totally recommend Dr. V for anyone that has back issues. - Jeffrey.S
The surgery was very very successful.This was my second surgery and I am very happy with the results - D.C
Dr. Beasley has been very professional, friendly, and helpful during the times that I saw her. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I would recommend this practice to anyone. - J.B
The whole process beginning w/ a consultation, & continuing w/ surgery & followups has been an experience unlike other orthopedic locations that I have visited. The surgery (ACDF) itself was an unexpected surprise for me. Staff & DR Beasley all have the BEST bedside manners!!! They all explained the whole procedure in ďlayman termsĒ. The best part was being prepared for hoarseness & ďswallowing lumpĒ (made homemade shakes) and neither incident happened. Thank you DR Beasley,,, for being so gentle. The only real issue is the scheduling process. It seemed somewhat difficult to find locations & times that were compatible for me (possibly due to tight schedules/rules the provider maintains). No matter- I will continue my treatments w/ this provider. I am an ex-patient (5 yrs) of Panorama & for many reasons I had/have many issues w/ them. I am thrilled I got my second opinion & was able to stay w/ this provider. Again THANK YOU sooooo much for the ďcleanĒ procedure & especially the recovery process. I leave the offices feeling happier & ďtallerĒ w/ each visit. - C.M
Without symptoms I was shocked to find that I had a meningioma the size of a chicken egg on the left side of my head behind my ear and was advised to have it removed as soon as possible by Dr V. Extreme summer heat seemed to increase inflammation and apparently my choice of words was being affected. I had the most incredible directness, follow up and neuro surgery with Dr V and his team. I give them my highest recommendation to any person dealing with meningioma issues and will thank them forever for their ability and caring.Maureen - Maureen Heeter
Great experience, answered all questions and concerns. Have already recommended boulder neurological - L.W
I had cervical spine surgery in July of 2016. Dr. Villavicencio and his staff were amazing. From my first visit to my release I was treated with respect and everything was clearly explained to me. My surgery went very well, there wasnít much pain and recovery was easy and quick. My pain, weakness and tingling in my arms and hands are no longer an issue. I would and have recommended Dr. V to anyone who is having neck or back issues. He is the best!! - P.L
Dr Rajpal identified a disc fragment that others had missed and successfully extracted it. I'm very grateful. - Marc.N
Surgery on January 9th went well for sciatic pain except the right leg, after 3 months that pain subsided and I am doing much better, - Nancy Swope

Dr. Villavicencio and his amazing team of specialists used their comprehensive skills and talents to bring my degrading spine into a state of stability and health. The billing and office staff are total professionals as well. If you choose these people to perform the most crucial and difficult surgery, you can be assured youíve selected the best! - N.Horianopulos
The staff and Dr were very nice and helpful. - K.M
I had bad pain along with weakness in arms, legs,and some bladder bowel issues. After the surgery all of the symptoms resolved. Everything about this procedure was amazing. Pain control after surgery was excellent.It is impossible to describe how much better I feel,it is Ike night and day. Once againDr. V has performed his magic. - J.F
Had a good experience overall. From beginning to end only issue was constipation but once that was resolved it was smooth sailing from there. - J.B
Dr. V and the entire staff has been absolutely amazing from explaining my needs to postoperative care. I interviewed many Doctors and locations prior to choosing BNC and no others compared! Thank you! - T.L
I was unable to walk more than 3 blocks before surgery. Immediately after, I was able to walk mile(s). Leg numbness was gone and pain in buttocks was gone. Surgery was very successful in addressing my issues. - R.HadleyDike

Had a great experience. No complaints at all. I feel that everyone listened well and felt like communication was good. - L.B
I have had ongoing disc problems in my neck and lower back. It is a condition that runs in my family. I had extreme pain, trouble walking, trouble gripping or picking up or holding on to anything with weight to it. The first time I saw Dr. V and his staff he repaired some problems in my neck. About ten years later I saw him again for repair of more neck problems and disc problems in my lower back. Before surgery I was talking anywhere from to to four Vicodin a day to make my pain levels manageable. They didnít eliminate it but made it possible to function. Dr. V and his team, everyone I encountered were fantastic. They were kind, helpful, professional and very knowledgeable. I was well informed about what would be done and any potential risks. I had no qualms about surgery, I have complete faith in Dr. V and his team. The results for me were more than I even dared hope for. I am no longer in pain. I took my last pain killer within days of surgery and have not needed them since (itís been over three years now). I can climb steps again, Iím so much less afraid of falling and Iím just moving around and doing things again. Basically I have my life back. These people know what they are doing and do it well. - M.O
Very professional, explanatory, and assuring. The staff went out of their way to be effective at helping me with my needs. - S.K
Dr. Rajpal is awesome! I'm 67 years old with chronic arthritis/nerve damage, and very nervous about having back surgery, thought I would probably end up in a wheelchair. But, Dr. Raj and a little snip here and there and I feel like I'm 30 years younger and walking without pain for the first time in years! - E.M
Excellent - E.M
Admitted to bch with subdural hematoma. Examined by dr Rajpal, who has monitored subsequent Ct scans. Excellent explanations of the scans and guidance about ongoing care and follow up. No surgery needed - best outcome possible. - D.B
Overall I'm pleased with the outcome and level or care I have received from my surgeon and staff. I would gladly recommend this facility to anyone in need of help with their health issues - D.H
Neck surgery c5 and c6 - T.M
Post op pain was more then expected but after initial incision pain gone no back pain. Follow up questions always answered promptly. If I need more back surgery I know where to come back too. I've also recommended this office staff and Dr. Rajpal to others. Staff did a wonderful job in describing what would happen preop, during and after surgery and follow up during the full first year. The year went just as described. - K.B
It was fine. Very detailed. - T.B
Amazing successful chordoma surgery - T.R
There wasn’t a treatment today. I came in for a consultation to explore options and possible results. Dr. Beasley was great! Friendly, personable and a sense of humor. Thanks - C.l
Dr.Beasley was a very confident doctor and friendly staff. - R.M
Went from not being able walk 2 or 3 steps without excruciating pain to walking at least a mile a day. Dr. Beasley and her team gave me my life back. - N.S
I have had great care - sherrie.G
Excellent surgical care. Good communication. Have great faith in this team and feel they genuinely care aabout me.. - Aileen Sedman
I have had many surgeries since being hit by a car. What I an tell you about Dr V is that he is hands down the best surgeon I know. He cares about his patients. Dr Vís PAís are as dedicated to patients as he is. Definitely 5 stars. - Donna Pease
Had back surgery to fuse V4 and V5 and to remove a cyst after suffering from lower back pain and sciatica. Surgery was a great success and I am feeling great now. Can do all the activities that I had been unable to do leading up to surgery again and am feeling no pain. - M.S
I had an L4-L5 microdiscectomy and decompression with another surgeon on October 26, 2016. By early December I was back in pain. I saw Dr. V in January, 2017, and we agreed on a second surgery. Dr. V mentioned fusion but I was adamantly against it. So, the pain returned within 6 weeks of that second surgery. After months of back and forth, and more injections that didnít work, I had to agree a fusion was necessary. Iím now 3 months out from my L4-L5 fusion and I feel pretty normal for the first time in almost 2 years. Iím not 100% pain free, but Iím not limping with every step and I donít feel hopeless. I actually feel hopeful for the first time in years and can envision my old life returning. The scrunched up painful face is returning to a laughing, smiling face. My friends and family are happy to have me back. I am so very grateful to have found Dr. V and Alex and Eric ???????????? - A.C
Alex answered all of my questions. He explained everything clearly. He seemed a little rushed but that seems to be his personality. - M.C
My experience was top rate. Everyone before and after my surgery were extremely knowledgeable and comforting. Both Dr V and Alex are great people and extremely knowledgeable. In my mind the surgery was a complete success. Pain relief is a relief! Iíd also like to thank the nurses at the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute. These gals were the best nurses Iíve ever had the pleasure to experience. My recovery nurse was comforting and extraordinary. After my surgery I had almost no pain, a little post oops in for a few days, but after that I was off the narcotics and back to work. I was seriously amazed. If I had to go through this again, I would choose Dr V and Alex over and over. Thank you all!!! - E.C
I am now pain free after 18 months of extreme back and leg pain. I am very glad to experience such relief. My experience has been excellent in every facet of surgery and recovery. I am very impressed with the quality of the doctor and staff. They are personable and professional. Thank you for improving my quality of life. - M.Fitzgerald
In July of 2017, I began to experience numbness in my legs from my waist down, sometimes falling to the floor. I experienced major headaches, loss of hearing, and pain in my left eye with diminished vision. After seeing many doctors who searched for a reason with MRIís from my legs, hips, spine, carotid artery and upon seeing a tiny aneurysm, Dr. V ordered a scan of my whole head from which a tumor the size being between a lime to lemon was discovered. On December 7, 2017, Dr. V and his team removed most of it surgically, and the rest, which was wrapped around a blood vessel, was treated by some radiation treatments in February 2018. I am happy to report that at six months out from the surgery and radiation, all is good. - Colette McDonald
Timely, professional and friendly. - K.F
Dr Beasley was prompt, able to get to the diagnosis and treatment recommendations in clear understandable terminology. - T.K
The Pain I had before surgery was excruciating. After surgery in my L 1/2 , region there was zero pain. The surgeons Installed half the hardware they intended to use, and I was up and walking the next day, zero pain from my lumber region. Just stiffness and weak muscles because I waited to long to get this surgery. Recovery went pretty fast, I am very aware of my body telling me what not to do and I listened. I walked a lot, and up and down the stairs constantly. A couple of naps a day and eating a lot to build up muscle strength. By the fourth week my back and legs wanted to stretch more so I went to physical therapy. She was shocked that I was wanting to move more. We discussed the eight week timeline of bones fusing together, and gave me a few exercises to do without moving,bending and twisting my spine. I have been very active my whole life, so not moving and just resting was new to me. Some how I made it through four months without bending and twisting my spine while strengthening and stretching my legs. Now I have the approval to start twisting (with in reason). Iím so excited that my life is returning to normal for me. No one can believe that Iím doing so well with metal parts in my back and a smooth perfectly straight thin scar. They say the scar looks like a scratch. This team of Doctors prove how knowledgeable and proficient they are in their Neurological and Spine Surgeries. - L.Campbell
Left arm was painful. Arm is back to normal and neck is normal. - Chester Burgett
I was in constant pain with a more than 40 year old spinal fracture. What Dr V and his team do is quite extraordinary. I have my life back. I can sleep and feel. It is like going from black and white to Color TV in my legs. Cycling gets stronger each day. Thank you to the ream at BNS. - T.P
Great job from all of the staff I have no complaints with any of them. - D.F
Came to get the diagnosis based on my Cat Scan/MRI. Dr. Beasley was very thorough and encouraging about no surgery required. If I have any future problems, I am to call her. - A.F
Excellent communications and follow up. The surgery was very successful. The healing process has been successful under their direction. - L.B
I am so grateful to the medical professionals in your office! Comparing my situation now to where I was at when I fist came to your office is like day and night. I was unable to walk without extreme pain. And in most cases the only way I could move with limited pain was to literally crawl on the floor. I had not been able to walk without pain for over 2 weeks. By the time I came to see your Doctors I thought I'd never walk upright again! Your doctors immediately recognized the pain I was in. I was taken into surgery for a L4/5 herniated disk that evening!The severe pain was eliminated almost immediately after surgery. It has been almost three months post-surgery and I am up and walking without pain or assistance. My situation contains to improve greatly each week, and once the nerves have healed, I hope to be back to a normal walking stride. Once It was discovered that I required surgery, the nurse, doctors, etc. were all very helpful when answering my questions and encouraging me when I had concerns and fears. I am so thankful that I visited your office when I did!I cannot express my thankfulness to your office for guiding me thru the diagnosis, unexpected surgery, and recovery. I was so blessed and fortunate to visit your office when I did. - C.S
BNA and Dr Rajpal were fantastic in my overall care. I was pleased with my surgery and progress. I would suggest proving more details with the out of network providers and potential costs. This would allow for the patient to search for an in network solution and avoid large out of network costs. - David Romero
Excellent Care! - D.V
Dr Beasley has totally corrected my pain on the right side of my back. I am so grateful she was recommended to me. My only discomfort now is mussel spasms (spelling) in my back. Hopefully that will improve with therapy. Thank you Dr Beasley. - Judith Varra

Came to your practice for a three level lumbar fusion. The whole experience was good from start to finish I would definitely recommend your practice in the future. - A.W
Was in pain for two years. Prior to 2018 my insurance was with Kaiser. I was getting very little help from them. Took more than a year to even get a MRI with my issue. Once I got my MRI the neurosurgeon at kaiser told me surgery was not an option and that pain management was my answer to my problem. They did give me two shots in the back. First one gave relief for 3months the second did nothing for me. Felt alone as it got to where I couldn't even walk around the block without major pain. My feet were completely numb and I was ready to give up on everything. I was able change my insurance in 2018 where I set up an appointment with Dr Rajpal. He assured me that there was a fix for my issue. I had my surgery in April and only 6weeks after surgery I felt better than I had in two years. I'm so excited to make a full recovery as I know that will happen. Thank you Dr Rajpal for what you have done for me! - D.B
L5 S1 microdisectomy fusion and lifts - John Unger
Very happy with results of surgery and responsive staff. Have enjoyed service and care for all surgeries. - T.S
I am grateful to all the help I was given. I will recommend Dr. V and the facilities he works at to those who need those services. - A.H
This was my fourth back surgery, first fusion which covered S1, L5, and L4. Dr. Rajpal and his entire staff were very knowledgeable and informative and did a wonderful job. The first surgeon I saw told me I needed a five level fusion, my initial reaction was that I wasn't going to do that and he sent me on my way with the contact information of a pain management specialist. Those steroid injections did nothing to help. Thanks to Dr Rajpal and his staff I am basically pain free and playing with my four year old and enjoying life again. - K.W
T12-L1 lumbar inter body fusion. - P.Joy
VERY serious spinal surgery with unmentionable complications. Recovery went as expected with all the proper prompting from the staff and outside help. It has surprised all the people I know in this field of medicine. Dr. V wanted to do the job which impressed me because he felt he not only could be a success but I knew there were nuggets he would pick up along the way that may be helpful n another occasion. - C.J
Great very helpf - Stephen.B
Very professional and caring staff. Excellent care. - C.P
Good well don happy with how things turn out - J.C
I felt very well taken care of by the entire staff, through the entire process. I highly recommend Dr V and appreciate everything he did to fix my back. I feel like a new man! - P.D
Dr. V and Alex have been amazing throughout this very major surgery. The office staff and assistants are as well. Recovery was horrible, but a year has passed, and it was worth it. Thanks to all of you for giving me a better life. I still have some pain, but I still have another year to fully recover so Iím excited to see how good I feel a year from now. - S.H
Very professional team. 3 level fusion. Good communication before and after. Definite improvement. Lack of flexibility takes some getting used too. Difficulty swallowing is still a issue but slowly improves. - N.R
Positive and informative staff. Nice working with the PAís, they are great understanding a personís needs. Provide a good sense of what to expect in the upcoming rehabilitation process. - R.M
The doc was knowledgeable and took her time with me. - P.V
I had debilitating back pain and leg pain to the point I couldnít sit down. These guys did a great job getting me diagnosed, and scheduled for surgery. The surgery was so smooth and so quick. The level of communication was excellent. The staff really empathized with my situation and never got aggravated with all of my questions. Great overall quality of care. I highly recommend DR V and his staff for your spinal problems. - R.F
2 year post-op follow-up. Awesome - surgery was a success! No pain for over a year. - C.P
I have experienced neck and back pain for 15 yrs and finally met Dr. Villavicencio and his wonderful staff . The root of my problem and diagnosis is degenerate bone disease and spinal stenosis in cervical and lumbar area. I went ahead and did both surgeries in a 3 month period . Best decision ever 6 months later I am a new person No more Pain I only lost 8% mobility and It doesnít even compare to the chronic pain I had before. Dr V and his staff are amazing I trust him completely highly recommend him as your surgeon . I am feeling wonderful god bless and thank you for taking such good care of me !! - V.T
I had an injury from over stressing my back that started causing pain down my right leg which went away after about 8 months. Later I lifted something heavy again and that made my left leg and right leg hurt down the back side into calf and foot. MRI showed disc bulging into the spinal canal at L3-L4 and disc between L4-L5 also bulging into sciatic nerve. Dr. V fused L3-L4 and that fixed my right leg completely but left leg still had the same symptoms. After about 6months it got worse. MRI showed sciatic nerve getting pinched between L4-L5. Had that fused. After about a month the pain in left back and buttock went away. I do have DDD which will be an ongoing problem but for now my lower back is doing good. I had no infection at surgery site on either occasion and the healing process went well also. Dr. V does great work and the staff also great to work with. - Eric.W
Great - D.B
Great - D.B
I am extremely grateful to Dr. V and his staff. I was having great difficulty and was in constant lower back pain.Dr. V was able to get me into surgery within five days. The surgery resolved my issues and changed my life for the better, much much better. The competence, professionalism and efficiency of the entire staff is more than impressive. I can not recommend this practice highly enough. - H.B
I had a quadruple fusion done in my neck by Dr. Villavicencio. He and his entire staff are amazing! They are all very nice and truly want you to be healthy. From the the first visit the entire team really tryís their best to be as efficient as possible. The surgery Dr V. performed took longer than he expected but I personally appreciate that he took his time. My neck feels great I donít have any pain. I just canít thank him and his staff enough! I tell everyone I meet to tell anyone who needs a Neurosurgeon to see Dr. V. - J.K
Dr Villavicencio operated on my back in July 2014 (3 level fusion) surgery and recovery have gone very well. In November 2016 I had a disc replacement and fusion that have also gone very well.

Pain in neck from a motor vehicle accident, numbness in arms, hard time sleeping. Tried neck injections and physical therapy with no relief. Saw Dr V on a Tuesday and had surgery the following Monday and the numbness gone immediately after surgery. Would recommend him to everyone!!!!! - Ronald Scott Laird
I had micro depression surgery in 2006, L2345; right. In 2018, micro depression L2345; left. Both times I have recovered in good shape with no lasting pains or difficulties, back to normal activities. Thanks to Dr Villavicencio and his team. - E.C
Early last year I was told by another Dr. that I needed surgery but Iím a bad surgical risk. When alternative therapies didnít work, a good friend told me about Dr. V. Dr. V. did the surgery and it went very well. The terrible pain was gone right away. Physical therapy got me back to normal functioning within several months. Everyone at this practice has been easy to work with and very helpful. Everything has gone quite smoothly. In my opinion Dr. V is an artist and he has the two best P.A.s Iíve ever met. - Barbara.M
First time seeing Dr. Beasley for a lower back issue. She did a great job explaining my condition and why the treatment plan we're doing was the best option. Looking forward to being healed! - R.B

Dr Rajpal is a very skilled surgeon. I was so pleased with both the pre and post surgical treatment of both the staff and the doctor.My many questions were always answered and the outcome of the surgery to remove a growth within my skull was so much better than expected. I would strongly recommend Dr. Rajpal to anyone needing neurosurgery. - Nina Marcus
Love Eric. Very professional and personable. - Kyle.M
I specifically requested Eric to be assistant with my procedure. Things went very well....no complications. While Dr. V has performed excellent surgeries 5 different times, my interaction/follow up has been mostly with Eric. Eric is excellent. Very personable and has heard every concern I have brought forth. I have total trust in him. I appreciate the care I have received from these 2 providers and the office staff. Thank you for everything. Eileen - E.W

After two years of having dibs Tati get pain in my legs, I was referred to Dr. V for an assessment. After review of my MRI Dr. V. knew exactly what I needed. Either live with the pain or have surgery. Three months after a successful surgery I am doing great and the pain in my legs is 100% gone. Dr. V and His PA Eric have been there for me throughout the entire process and continue to provide me with the same excellent care that theyíve provided me for the last six months.

I had surgery to address a disc herniation that was causing ongoing pain. Surgery went well and Dr. Rajpal's staff was very helpful throughout the process. - E.L
Excellent service by staff and clinicians. My results were also excellent. - A.S
I came in for multiple corrections. It was a very difficult surgery but I couldnot have asked for better treatment or results. Dr Vís team is the best, when I was recommended to him the person said ďall neurosurgeons are created equalĒ and I have found that to be absolutely true! I wouldnít trust anyone else to work on me or any family member! - Mary K McKee Haynes
Awesome. She was very friendly and happy to answer my questions. - R.P
Saw Dr. V for a second opinion regarding a herniated disc (C6/C7). He identified the need for timely surgical repair and was able to get me into surgery the following week for ACDF. Symptoms (pain/weakness) were alleviated immediately by surgery. At 3 months out, weakened muscles continue to strengthen, pain remains absent, and fusion is healing well. Iíve had an excellent experience with my treatment and all members of the staff. - C.H
Before the operation I was in terrible back pain. I was unable to do even simple things. Since the operation, I have absolutely no pain. I feel like Dr Villavicencio has given my life back. Now I can walk totally without any pain. Dr Villavicencio and his team have been absolutely wonderful. The office staff has been very accommodating, helpful, and friendly. - P.N
Surgery by Dr ďVĒ was 100% successful. I have no lower back pain, and am able to participate in all the activities that caused me pain before surgery. I am one very happy patient! - David.J
I came to BNA a year ago after a terrible accident. The event, overall, was very disruptive to my life and very frightening. Once I consulted with Dr. Villavicencio and his staff, things really improved. My procedure and recovery have been flawless and I very much appreciate the expertise of Dr. V and his clinical and administrative staff. I came here with the expectation of top notch care and that is exactly what I have experienced. If you: have a need for a neurosurgery consult or procedure, and you want it explained to you in a straightforward manner, and have high expectations for your performance, seek BNA. - B.S
I was having horrible pain and could not move without pain. The source was identified as two cysts in my lower spine. After trying to relieve the pain through other means, I opted for surgery, with Dr V. I especially appreciated Dr. V calling my neurologist and conferring with her on other chronic health issues that could be effected by the surgery. While in recovery in the hospital, I had some heart (a fib) issues. Everyone was very responsive, caring, and took extra effort to understand my unique situation. Other than a horrible night my first 24 hours in the rehab center, I had a great experience at all facilities, with all doctors, staff, and personnel. After one year, I am without pain and have resumed all my activity from before. (Although activity is very limited due to generalized Myasthenia Graves.). Overall, I am very happy that I came here for help. - Donlyn.W
I had an ACDF 2 1/2 Yearís ago by Dr V. He fused 3 vertebrae in my neck. My outcome was excellent. Absolutely pain free, excellent range of motion, and have all my energy back. I have no restrictions or limitations. I am 66 Yearís old and have minimal health issues, mild pain in general. I had a thoracic surgery with him as well about 4 Yearís ago as well, and in general both surgeries were successful. I am very pleased with Dr. V, Eric and Alex as my providers. They gave me the information I needed to make my decision to have both surgeries. My follow-up care was very helpful and if any issues arose they were promptly address. I appreciate BNA for helping me get a new lease on life. The staff is just awesome, and I wouldnít hesitate to use them again if I ever have the need. - Debra Shockley
The staff. Were very friendly and helpful. - R.M
Great experience. I was lucky enough to grab someoneís surgery cancellation 2 days from my initial appointment so was in & out fast. The actual surgery was went fine. I was probably discharged from the hospital an hour or two too soon as I was still very sleepy. Surgery was at 10 am approximately & I was discharged about 2:30pmEverything went well after surgery....no allergic reaction as no glue this time. I have recovered just fine. Thank you for a great experience. - Christie.P
The pre surgery was informative and set my expectations well. Surgery went well without complications. Post op instructions were clear and there was no reason to contact the office until post op visit. Started PT 6weeks out, progressing well. I visited my office within 1 week of surgery, and was back full time within 3weeks. My other surgeon told me that I would be in the hospital for 5 to 7 days and home for at least a month. This was my third spinal fusion with Dr V and went according to plan with excellent results. I have recommended him to many people including my own clients. - M.J
Excellent. Would do it again. I would recommend staff highly - D.B
Very straight forward on cause and correction. Surgery quick painless. Office visits very good loved Stephanie. - R.W
I am a 39 year old healthy and athletic mama once again! After 7 months of trying everything to alleviate chronic sciatic nerve pain, numbness and tingling, I heard about Dr. V and his team.

I was referred by my doctor with a critical disc failure that caused a lot of pain and nerve damage in my left leg and foot. Dr. V got me into surgery in less than 48 hours. The entire experience at the surgical center was good. Everyone made me comfortable and treated me with respect. Itís only been two weeks since surgery and my pain is gone and Iím making good progress getting back my leg functioning. - Christina.V
I am extremely grateful to the entire BNA staff for their patience, compassion and understanding during my treatment. I first saw Dr V in 2018 for my pain, after seeing 2 other surgeons. I was scheduled for a fusion surgery right away to alleviate the pain {L4-L5 spondylolisthesis} and was hesitant to have that surgery (even with my pain levels) due to ďstoriesĒ Iíd heard. I postponed my surgery and took some time to think ... and during that time I was called by the office to bring me in the office for a consult. To my surprise I met with Dr V and Alex/Eric (PAs) within 48 hours to inform me about an FDA clinical trial to treat my symptoms. They remembered my hesitation regarding fusion and brought another procedure to my attention that could work for me, while being less invasive than fusion. They were beyond thorough in determining if this procedure was right for me and after I met with them on a Wednesday (and after confirming I met the qualifications) I was scheduled for surgery the following Tuesday!My experience was phenomenal! after surgery to implant the clinical trial device, I have experienced no back pain since I came out of anesthesia. I was off any prescribed pain meds within 36 hours and although slow to move around, my mobility and flexibility were SO MUCH BETTER than before surgery (I was out of work for about 6 months before surgery, and spending a lot of time sitting/lying down due to the pain). I was inactive and felt very down due to my symptoms and this surgery was a turning point in my life.Itís been 3 months since my surgery and my activity level has greatly increased during that time - and I just got the go ahead today to ride my bike again (itís been over 18 months!) and Iím SO (!!) excited to get my life back and start normal activities!I truly canít say enough about the level of expertise and professionalism I encountered while working with the staff (Dr. V, Alex, Eric, Sigita, Vinod, StephAnn, Anna, Sarah) ... they are truly a ďteamĒ that does an extraordinary job in giving you all the options, making sure you clearly understand all aspects of the surgery, following through and having a sense of compassion and understanding throughout the process. I feel extremely fortunate in having discovered this practice and ultimately to be treated by this ďfamilyĒ of professionals ... I could NOT be happier with my results! Thank you BNA (esp Dr. Villavicencio) for your support and my outcome. ???? - Teresa Parker
Excellent outcome.. no more neck or shoulder plain on right side. So happy!!!! Have so much confidence in Dr. V and his team! They are the best ever and am so grateful for them and to be out of pain. Thanks to all the team and Dr. V!!!! - Karen Friedman
Iím three months in by now. I am pain free and making great progress on my physical therapy. Thatís a bonus. Dr. V exceeded my expectations. Not only did he probably save my life with the surgery, but he has been instrumental in improving my mobility.The staff is extremely supportive. Theyíre a great crew! - T.L
Fast, efficient, direct. Willing to follow up as much as needed. - C.J
Dr V and Alex are always VERY clear and succinct there is no beating around the bush. Which is very nice. We like to know how it is. The ladies at the front desk are great to work with and always helpful. It has been a pleasure being a patient with BNS. - T.P
Dr V,Alex, and staff have more than exceeded our needs! We could not be more pleased with out come of an extensive surgery. - P.A
I cannot overstate how impressed I am with everyone at Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates. Dr. Rajpal, Erika Freiberg (Dr. Rajpal's PA), the front desk staff, the surgical team - all contributed to an experience that far exceeded my expectations.I was in severe pain for close to three months, on multiple medications, unable at times even to stand up. But after three hours in Dr. Rajpal's and the surgical team's skilled, accomplished hands - and a few hours of rest - my wife and I took the dog for a walk. I had only minor residual surgical pain and now, six weeks later, in absolutely no pain, I am still in disbelief at the transformation.I honestly cannot think of a single thing, from my first office visit, through surgery and my post-op visits, that could have been done to have made even one step of the process any easier or better. Thank you to everyone! - B.b
Exemplary care and extremely knowledgeable staff. I would recommend Dr. Villavicencio to anyone. - L.B
These people saved my life! The way I was headed was an existence in a wheelchair with constant pain. At 67 I wasn't ready to give up, I had to take a chance. Their confidence, exceptional skill and knowledge encourage me to go for it!! I really had no choice. One year later, unbelievable! No pain! I am moving like I was 30. I feel so good! I am upright moving freely without any apparatus to help!Now I can truly enjoy my twilight years! As we get older there is a choice, don't believe you have to live with pain. I don't!!Thank you all so very much!! - M.L
I came in for a second opinion for an mri review. I was provided with thorough information and answers to my questions. I will only come here from this point forward from Fort Collins for neurosurgery appts and consult. - Dianne Flynn
Excellent results, quality care and genuine concern for the patient - D.W

I had a very fine experience with Dr V.My family and I appreciated his flexibility and ability to address our questions and concerns with respect and expertise.He assessed and addressed my condition in a bigger picture way than previous physicians had done which I am forever grateful for.Plus Steph is amazing! What a gem she is in making me and others feel special.She manages the office beautifully. - M.C
Wonderful everyone is super. Dr. V is the best Dr I have ever gone to: Alex and staff are the ultimate in service. - C.S
Fantastic. Better results than I imagined. The minute I walked after surgery, I knew Dr. V fixed my back. No pain in back and legs since surgery. Started walking at least one mile a day three weeks after surgery. Iím very pleased to have my life back. - A.K
Staff and Dr. were great and professional, although my primary Doctor sent me here the Dr. was not able to treat my condition but she did send me to the right person. - L.D
I came to see Dr. Rajpal with chronic pain in my lumbar spine. After opting for surgery I'm so glad I did! Now 3 months post-op I feel amazing!BNA staff was there for me whenever I had concerns or questions. I never felt like I was "bothering" them even when I a million questions!I would highly recommend BNA. - K.C
My spinal fusion was very successful. Placement of hardware was excellent. My sciatic pain is entirely gone. - G.A
Everyone was amazing. I felt cared for and definitely not just another number. Both before and after surgery, these folks were warm, efficient, and caring. - A.H
I was treated for a broken C1 and along with the repair of C1, Dr Rajpal reconstructed my C-Spine making corrections to a badly mis-aligned arthritic neck. I now have my neck "Screwed on Straight" for the first time in decades! I could not be more pleased with the results- Kudos to Dr. Rajpal and his team. - R.Oxley
Had surgery on 12/27/17 on brain cancer removal. I loved the communication to myself and family before and after surgery! Also with two follow up visits on the healing of my incision. Communication has been clear and professional any questions answered when asked. Thank you! - Patty.G
Phenomenal - 16 weeks or rehab didn't work well. As soon as I woke from surgery I could feel my left foot for the first time in months. Have already recommended Dr. Rajpal to anyone and everyone I detail the experience to. - C.D

Dr. Rajpal is a miracle worker. There is no other way to say it. I am at 6.months and everything has gone so well. I have had many back surgeries and had all kinds of complications. With Dr. Rajpal it all worked out perfectly. I left the hospital in 5 days which I felt was a major accomplishment. It is hard to put into words how wonderful it is to not have that excruciating pain I had whenI met him. Thank you. - Sue.O
I am so pleased with the results of the C-Spine Surgery that Dr. Rajpal performed. The severe concentrated pain is gone and since the surgery on September 19th, I have only had a few days of moderate to severe pain (likely from weather/barometric pressure changes and computer work). Thank you for giving me the freedom of returning to a more normal lifestyle! - G.c

The recovery it taking longer than I thought is would, but his staff says,I am doing fine.I have,been pleased with the follow up. - j.g
Dr. Rajpal and his team were amazing! It is a very scary process to consider a back fusion. It's a big deal and the decision should not be taken lightly. His expertise shows in the success of his work. It's been 1 year and I am extremely happy I did the surgery. With lifestyle modifications and core body work, I am active again. - C.N

Dr Beasley has a wonderful bedside manner, is extremely knowledgeable & even though she was running behind schedule, Dr Beasley was very thorough. She took her time with me & made me feel very comfortable with my medical options. - Jeannette Cooper

All of you were wonderful to me through everything - T.B
Staff was very friendly and helpful, and Dr. Beasely was very knowledgeable and used good analogies! - A.N
Dr. Beasley is a force of nature. I found her to be professional, kind and brilliant. I met her in one of the scariest moments of my life and within 5 minutes she had my complete trust. I watched her command the hospital staff with little more than a look. Everyone around her would likely follow her off a cliff. If you are unlucky enough to need a neurosurgeon, this is the place to be. If Dr. Beasley is booked, then Dr. Rajpal is another great option. Boulder neurosurgery is an amazing practice! - J.K
Dr. Beasley answered all questions with obvious knowledge and experience. Will f/u with recommendations - C.P
I am so glad to have had the surgery, and so happy it went well. My hospital stay was pleasant and so grateful to have had Dr. Rajpal do my surgery.

Very informative and to the point. - J.Y
I am back where I was before my back issue began. - B.S
The Boulder Neurosurgeon & Associates group was so wonderful! I am six months out with TLIF surgery and I am so much better than I was six months ago.

I have my life back! - D.M
Excellent surgeon. Progress seems to be on schedule. - N.P
Everything went according to the surgery schedule and I am looking forward to good results. - W.H

Very detailed. Great future expectations. - B.A
Excellent. Very through. Took time to explain my options. Made sure I understood that there was no hurry to make any decisions. Especially when it came to a possible surgery.

Very informative. - L.P
Best surgery I have experienced. Professional from start Dr Rajpal is wonderful. Highly recommend him and his staff. Thanks. Feel great - J.S
I was visiting my daughter from out of town and experiencing a lot of back pain. Dr. Beasley and her team were extremely helpful and supportive. I received an appointment within a few days, and her team went out of their way to help expedite an MRI appointment and followup so that I could receive treatment before I left to make a long car journey home. Dr. Beasley and her P.A. Christie answered all of my questions and gave me all the time I needed to make sure that I understood everything that we discussed. Her office manager Toni was very helpful and and pleasant when I had to call her several times to work through some questions and issues. When the doctor was delayed because of an emergency for one of the appointments, her MA came in several times to explain what was happening and apologize. Even though I was not a local patient, I felt surrounded by a team of people who cared about my well being and about ME, even though they would not be seeing me again. - M.C
Dr Rajpal was great! Took time to listen and explain in detail!! All other staff was great to work with as well! - K.H
For 17 years I lived in debilitating pain from a neck injury. I saw many doctor's in three different states and no one offered a solution for my pain. I was told again and again my only option was to learn to cope with the pain. In August 2016 I saw Dr. Shadad Rajpal who was not intimidated by my case and he offered a solution. In November I had ACDF surgery on my neck. I woke up from surgery in less pain than I had been living with for so long. Dr. Rajpal's skill and expertise in surgery has given me my life back and I am so grateful! I faithfully do physical therapy and walk daily. After 17 years I am completely off pain medication and I am able to do the things I enjoy again. Not very many doctor's are trained as both an Orthopedic Surgeon as well as a Neurosurgeon, but Dr. Rajpal has another quality that makes him stand out over other Surgeons': he knows how to listen and communicate with his patients. Rare to find all three in one doctor. I am so very grateful! - R.M
All in all good care, and follow up. All went well with my surgery so I have no complaints. - A.d
Dr. Beasley and her team are extremely skilled and knowledgeable. After requiring emergency surgery 6 months ago, I now feel almost completely back to normal. I am very thankful for the treatment I have received and I highly recommend them. - L.A
Dr Beasley described my condition and treatment options clearly and in detail. It was very informative, open and honest and simplified the decision making process. I would highly recommend Dr Beasley. The staff at the front desk was also very helpful, efficient and professional - M.W
I feel good with very little pain - D.C
Great experience with all of the medical team. - J.N

Dr Rajpal is a fantastic and talented surgeon. He is patient and caring. He teaches and explains all aspects of your medical condition. He takes the time for you to have all your questions answered. His staff is friendly and competent. His physician assistants are friendly and knowledgeable. They take the time to answer all questions you may have and take great care of you. I am extremely impressed and would recommend them highly. - D.T
I am very happy with the results of the surgery Dr Rajpal performed on my back. It's been over a year now and I'm doing very well. I feel that he is an excellent surgeon. I'm also very pleased with his staff. - B.E
I have had 4 back surgeries. 2 lamenectomies, L4-5 fusion and this last surgery was a L3-4, 4-5 and L5-S1 fusion with Dr. Rajpal. I am extremely happy with my results! I have not felt this good in over 10 years (and I am only 39). I was a former gymnast and had a stress fracture of one vertebrae when I was 9 years old. Then I had a bad car accident in 2004 that started the issues with my discs. I had had years of therapy, shots and surgeries since then. I am so grateful and blessed to have found Dr. Rajpal and finally got the surgery to fix everything that needed to be fixed. I just had my one year anniversary... I am feeling great! Thank you so much Dr. Rajpal! - M.L
Amazing! This whole experience has been very professional. I feel better than I have in 16 years. This was the easiest fusion I've gone through. Thanks for giving me my life back! - H.B
Very pleased with overall results, from pre to post surgery. Erika was always easy to talk with and her knowledge and understanding of my questions were very helpful. Dr. Rajpal did an excellent job identifying theproblems of a old complex back. Many thanks to all. - L.M
Other than a hiccup with getting special platelets for my procedure, Dr. Beasley and her team did a great job. My pain level after the procedure was low and the incision locations healed rapidly. Follow up care was outstanding and they didn't treat me like just another patient. They were all very considerate of my progress. A very professional team! - Gary Belhumeur
My surgery went very well. I left the hospital in two days and never had any pain. Never took any pain medication. Great job. - C.R
I am a practicing doctor for the last 37 years. My interaction with Boulder Neurologic Associates, specifically Dr Kara Beasley,MD was exceptional....OK, awesome! Dr Beasley and her staff were very thorough in their evaluation and explanation of my diagnosis. Their compassion toward me was very evident as they made sure all my questions were answered. Numerous treatment protocols both traditional and nontraditional were presented very carefully making sure again my questions were answered in detail. I give Dr Beasley the highest recommendation. - D.T

Dr. Rajpal and his PA staff are professional, supremely knowledgeable and highly motivated to getting patients back to a higher quality of life. I have been impressed - from day one - with Dr. Rajpal and his surgical team on their patience, time, thoroughness and ability to answer any and all questions. Additionally, they offered comfort to my family during the entire process of my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Rajpal, Vikki and Erica - keep up the great work and never loose sight of the incredible advocacy you offer your patients. - B.N

I had Grade 3 spondylolisthesis due to a congenital defect of which I was unaware. My L5 vertebra had slipped far enough as to choke off my spinal canal, causing bilateral numbness and tingling down both legs, and some bladder symptoms, necessitating immediate surgical correction. Exactly one year ago, Kara Beasley performed my L4-L5-S1 fusion, removing two damaged discs, inserting two spacers and affixing the realigned vertebrae with 4 rods and 6 screws. Dr. Beasley is an extraordinarily talented, knowledgeable and expert neurosurgeon. She essentially saved my life. Throughout the year-long follow-up period, she and her fantastic PA, Christie Zakar, diligently monitored the progress of my fusion and tirelessly answered all my questions, of which I had very many. They addressed each and every one of my concerns with patience and compassion, and educated me as to overall spinal biomechanics and health. They found a physical therapist specifically and uniquely matched to my needs as a rock climber, CrossFitter and overall outdoor athlete. I am a vigorous and lifelong advocate for Dr. Kara Beasley and Christie Zakar. I would emphatically recommend this team without hesitation to address and correct any spinal and/or neurological issues. I implicitly trust their expertise and have zero doubts as to their exceptional abilities to return health, wellness and quality of life to any patient. They are caring, empathetic and brilliant medical professionals.Today marks the end of my post-surgical monitoring and though I am excited to hear my surgery and fusion declared successful, I am a little sad knowing I won't be returning to pepper these two outstanding medical scientists with questions. However, I leave reassured that should anything arise in the future, I can return to this team and safely put my body and health in their superbly capable hands. Thank you forever, Dr. Beasley and Christie!!! - A.Amiet
I had surgery to remove a meningioma on the left side of my brain. Dr Beasley and her entire staff were absolutely fantastic. - P.Q
Meeting with both P.A. Christine Z. And Dr. Kara Beasley was very thoughtful and professional.I got answers to my questions and assistance in follow up procedures. - D.C
Let me start out by saying I am a huge fan of this entire practice! Dr Beasley is a brilliant surgeon and person, she is kind, caring, genuine, thoughtful and just an amazing soul who knows her stuff! I am incredibly grateful for she and Christie Zakar and their entire team there at Boulder Neurosurgical. This practice is and has tremendous heart and they truly care about giving individuals there lives back.I came to Dr Beasley in some of the worse pain I had ever experience in my life after a follow up appt from a previous pain management place that adjusted me into pain I could have never imagined and would literally cripple me for months. After having tried every alternative method to gain relief for months prior to choosing surgery to no avail; I sought Dr Beasley's guidance and I finally accepted that if I wanted my active life back; I needed to put my back and my trust with Dr Beasley to rid myself of the constant debilitating pain that was rendering me unable to walk. And I am so deeply incredibly grateful I made that choice. She took the time to explain to me everything I needed to make my decision. They supported me along the way. Christie was awesome every time I called in emotional or afraid she answered my questions and put my mind at ease. I have followed my Dr's order to the letter and as soon as I came out of recovery I have been walking without pain. Obviously there is some residual nerve stuff because I waited so long to have the surgery but I get stronger each day and that subsides each day and am so thankful to be walking again WITHOUT ANY PAIN. And following the restrictions so that I have a complete and full recovery. I would recommend Dr Beasley and Boulder Neurosurgical to anyone and every one I know that is struggling with debilitating back pain. Thank you all for your support and getting rid of my pain. AND did I mention Dr Beasley is brilliant! - D.B
Dr Beasley was very nice and was willing to listen and answer any concerns I had. - P.C
First: my first name is Jimmye, not Jimmie. This is my second DBS process and each time Dr Beasley has been very personable and professional. My sister was so impressed with the results of the first process that she had the process done herself last November. This time the anesthesiologist kept me more awake than the previous process. I was more aware of what was going on in the operating room. I was aware of Dr Beasley speaking with others, who were observing the surgery. I can unequivocally say that I would be honored to be a spokesperson for this process. - J.OConnor
Very precise and efficient - E.P
Dr Beasley really listened to me. And was very understanding. I felt like she really cared about how I was feeling and wanted to help me figure out why I'm always in pain. Also loved that the staff was so nice, they seem to really like there jobs. - K.A
All was fine. Appointment on time. Courteous staff. - J.D
A very informative session with Dr Beasley and it was satisfying being a new patient with many questions. I was fearing of the consequences of this fall and the pain I was experiencing but Dr Beasley calmed me. Hopefully I am on the road to recovery - C.M
I had a "Med-Tronic" spinal cord stimulator implanted for relief of long term chronic back pain, with 2 weeks of healing the device was working perfectly. Since them I have had a few adjustments to the stimulator, with increased relief each timeI have recommended this device and procedure to several friends with similar back issues, and have told them of my incrediblely pleasant experience with Dr. Beasley, and her entire staff. Thank you all so very much. - r.G
I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door. Staff was friendly and made interactive conversation aside from asking medical type questions. - Toni Lynn Atzin Ortega
