I had 2 level disk replacement surgery. All went perfectly. Dr Kumar is excellent at what he does.

My family considers Dr. Kumar a Miracle Worker. 10 years ago I was given a diagnosis of tumor at C-5. Initially I was advised my case complicated.There were only a few surgeons in the world who would be able to perform the surgery. We found Dr. Kumar who performed 2 surgeries 3 weeks apart. Dr. Kumar removed C-5 with double fusions C4-6 back 3 weeks later the front. I also had calcium around artery to brain which he removed. 2- 6 hour surgeries and 10 years later I am doing GREAT!

I recently had a L1 through L6 spinal fusion performed by Dr. Kumar and I feel wonderful! The pain I was experiencing before my surgery is completely gone and I look forward to regaining my life again. Dr. Kumar is very personable, the staff is friendly and professional. I would highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Kumar.
in Parker, CO |
Dr. Kumar is kind and very knowledgeable. I awoke one morning with severe pain in my neck and left arm. I went to my PC physician but after a month of no relief I went to Dr. Kumar on the recommendation of my sister. In less than ten minutes Dr. Kumar diagnosed the issue as a herniated disc. He sent me for a MRI and the MRI confirmed his diagnosis. I tried the steroid injection with no result, the surgery was completed very skillfully because I returned to my room pain free! Thank you Dr. K!

Dr. Kumar has performed two decompression surgeries on my back approximately 11 years apart. He also has done surgery on my wife and son for different issues. In every case he was spot on with the diagnosis, surgeries went exactly as planned, healing and recovery has been exceptional. Thank you Dr. Kumar for making our lives pain free!! I highly recommend Dr. Kumar to anyone with spine issues.

Most thorough physician I have ever had an appointment/surgery with. His care and knowledge is top notch. I have seen many docs for back pain and none compare to the care I received by Dr. Kumar. Highly recommend this surgeon.
