Overview

Vikram Talwar, MD is a fellowship trained and board certified orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in the treatment of spinal conditions in pediatric, adult and elderly patients with an emphasis on the use of minimally invasive techniques. He treats pediatric deformities such as scoliosis, traumatic injuries such as vertebral fractures, disc herniations, and degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis and disc degeneration. Dr. Talwar's approach is conservative with surgery being the option after all other treatments have been discussed and/ or tried. He offers the best advancements in spine surgery for patients with degenerative disease of the spine, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, and other conditions. Patient Testimonials "I had a positive experience. Although I waited over an hour for my first appointment, it was worth the wait. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Dr. Talwar was very good explaining my health problem and what should be done. I never had such a good experience taking care of my health needs. I would recommend Dr. Talwar to everyone I know needs orthopedic care. Thank you!" – C. Kora "I made my appointment with Dr. Talwar to get a second opinion on my past treatments and diagnoses relative to my back injury that I was unable to attain from past medical professionals. Dr. Talwar examined the MRI that I provided and addressed all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Talwar spent a surprisingly long time with me, and I felt that he focused totally on my situation until he had a total understanding of my medical condition and had addressed all of my concerns before releasing me. His patience and open demeanor enabled me to obtain answers to all of my questions. I now have a comfortable understanding of my back condition and know how to avoid future dibilitating problems." – J. Icanberry "The doctor was very good and put me at ease. He seemed to take the extra time to look at everything and is referring me for another doctor for something I didn't even come to him for. I would recommend him very highly." – S. Emmanuele "Dr. Talwar is wonderful. He always takes his time with you and explains and answers all your questions. His assistant Gisselle is also wonderful. The whole staff is too !! I would recommend Dr. Talwar to anyone who is in need of his services !! Sure there have been times Iv'e had to wait for quite sometime to just be seen, but I always remember how great he is with each and all his patients. So it's worth the wait !!!" – J. Christiansen "Dr. Talwar is wonderful. He has been treating my daughtyer for scoliosis since she was 14 and every experience we have had in the San Ramon office has been a pleasure. From our appts with him to x-rays, bracing discussions, etc. our experience has been wonderful." – R. Owens "I want to send a thank you to Giselle for helping me obtain a doctor's note for my job. After having an epidural, I was limited for my full work duties. She went above and beyond to help me obtain this letter - and I truly appreciate it! Thank you!" – N. Kurtz "I am a longtime patient of the practice-Drs. Fraser, Salyapongse, and Talwar. All are wonderful people and phenominal doctors! In 2010, Dr. Fraser introduced me to Dr. Talwar in conjunction with my lumbar spine issues; I was a veteran of 7 surgeries at that point and had continuing problems and great discomfort. Dr. Talwar conducted a comprehensive evaluation, explained his findings in terms I could understand, and suggested that he beleived he could bring me relief. True to his word, he subsequently performed a "Decompression" and I have had great relief and a much improved life style in the ensuing 11 months. This is a Godsend and I will forever be gratreful to him and his fantastic support team. All are great assets to your practice and I would heartily recommend them to anyone." – J. M. Eaneman
