What People Say About Dr. Dean Karahalios, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Twice Dr. "K" has given me my life back. The first time was lumbar surgery in 2005 in Indianapolis. After a failed surgery by another doctor Dr. "K" went in and totally fixed me. The second time was in Good Samaritan Hospital in 2017. Had a really serious problem in the cervical section of my neck. Of course, I found Dr. "K" and he did the surgery. It was a very involved fusion and was a difficult recovery, but he got me through and I am doing fine. If you question his ability, DO NOT!

From the first visit, right through Lumbar Surgery and the follow up visits, Dr. Karahalios, Barb and the entire staff were absolutely the BEST!! Spinal Surgery can be a bit intimidating to say the least but Dr. K. and crew eased my worries. Three years and counting and my back feels GREAT! It's pretty awesome to FINALLY have my life Back!!

Dr. Karahalios located a tumor on my spine that no one else had noticed, and did a wonderful job removing it. For the first time in almost a decade, I am no longer in pain! I without a doubt recommend Dr. Karahalios and am grateful I visited him.

I've had a deteriorating nerve condition going on 20 years and had 2 spinal operations without any improvement. Dr Kalahalios listened to my story patiently while I had a senior moment relating my history. He was the first doctor to completely tell it how and what it is along with risk and outcome at my advanced age. I only wish I had him 20 years ago
