No more pain!! I feel great after surgery. Dr. Kepler shoots straight. If he runs late, it’s because he spends as much time with each patient as they need, not the opposite! You won’t regret going to see him.

Dr. Kepler performed lumbar fusion on me 1 year ago. I am pain free and living life to the fullest! He really is an amazing surgeon and so down to earth. I can't believe it's been a year since my operation and I have no limitations. I owe it all to Dr. Kepler!
