I met Dr. Kumar seventeen years ago. He performed a lower back fusion and 10 years ago he did a cervical fusion. This year he performed another cervical fusion and corrected a Scoliosis condition. He is a Dr. who loves his work and wants the best for his patience.

I believe Dr Kumar is the best spine doctor in the region based on my experiences with other providers. He fixed several complicated spine problems for me with excellent outcomes. He is very kind, companionate and caring. I would highly recommend Dr Kumar to anyone with spine issues.
