Dr. Pouratian is a game-changer. If you are lucky/fortunate enough to find yourself in his care, you should be extremely grateful to know that you’re getting treatment from one of the most knowledgeable Neurosurgeons on the planet. After recovering from a series of 5 surgeries in 3 years on my shoulder/scapula/neck, my countless hours of rehab was ruined by a car accident. When none of my other doctors who worked on me before could figure out what was wrong, I was referred by my Neurologist at UCSD to see him. He quickly was able to identify issues, create a plan, and he and Dr. Gelabert saved my life, for lack of a better way of explaining. I was in unimaginable pain and stuck in a sling for over 5 months. After their procedure, I walked out of UCLA hospital a day later with no sling. The recovery has been brutal, but I would not be on a path to healing without Dr. Pouratian in my corner.
