For cervical fusing, Dr Kemper is great. He did mine in December, and it was easy for me from surgery through recovery. And the pain is gone! I highly recommend him.

He is a doctor that doesn't jump into operation right away. First the treatment and then wait to see if it helps.

Dr Kemper gave me my life back. After more than three years of searching for the right doctor he was the only one to get it right the first day I saw him. I owe him my livelihood. Thanks
