Cervical fusion
I was debilitated and in a lot of pain for over 2yrs, Dr. Kepler was professional & took the time to explain what was needed to get me better. I was in the operating room 2weeks later. It's been a year post surgery and I feel so much better. I highly recommend Dr. Kepler

Great doctor
Perfect. I wanted to see Dr Kepler because he operated on my daughter’s back several years ago and we realized then that he was a great surgeon with a great personality. My visit with him recently was just as helpful. He gave me options for my back problem which is exactly what i wanted.

I had a lumbar spinal fusion with Dr. Kepler in 2021. Dr. Kepler is a superb surgeon with outstanding diagnostic skills and knowledge. He explains conditions well and combines all with patience and compassion. I am rating Dr. Kepler as an all-around 5 star surgeon. Dr. Kepler works with a 5 star team, consisting of two R.N's - Alexis Drennan and Nicole Quail. Alexis is a great surgical nurse who assists Dr. Kepler in the operating room and also helps with post-op treatment. Nicole Quail has been my "go-to" person since my first pre-op telephone call to the office. She dispenses medications and advice as needed and has helped me with post-op problems. She is always responsive and kind. I consider Dr. Kepler and this team to be without equal. Barbara M.

I am very happy to have chosen Dr. Kepler as my doctor for potential surgery. I truly believe he cares about me as his patient and is doing everything he can to alleviate the pain I experience in my lumbar spine. He explained everything to me in detail and looks right at you when he speaks to you which is important to me. I definitely would recommend Dr. Kepler to my family and friends.

I’ve been a Spinal-care patient with Rothman Orthopaedics for the past 13 years. All my Rothman Orthopaedic Doctors and Nurses have provided me excellent care. Dr Kepler graciously accepted my case when pain management could no longer alleviate some of my spinal issues. A thorough evaluation and consultation with Dr Kepler and Alexis Drennen, PA was quickly received - confirming a complex Cervical surgery was necessary. From initial Consult, through my Surgery and ongoing Post-surgical care, Dr Kepler and his Nursing Staff - continue to be attentive to my concerns providing me compassionate and thorough recovery care. Ecstatically, at 3 months post-surgery, I’m regaining some of my former mobility!! If you’re in need of an excellent Spinal Care Surgeon, I highly recommend contacting Rothman Orthopaedics to see Dr Kepler now!
