I'm an 80 year old male, with a successful spinal fusion in May, 2020, behind me, and now in the rehab phase. Dr. K was thorough during our initial meetings, clearly explaining all my options after years of back pain, injections and PT. I had a spinal fusion years ago, so there were issues in my spine to complicate the situation, and Dr. K went to great lengths prior, during and post surgery to insure that I had the best possible opportunity to have a successful result. I now have 6 screws, 2 posts and cushions between discs and am having a long but very comfortable effort to return strength, mobility and a much better life.

Dr. Karaikovic took the time to explain what treatment options were available to me and what the pros and cons were for each. After the surgery he again took the time to explain what the recovery time was and what to expect. Everything he said happened and I was prepared for it. It is great to have a surgeon this professional and companionate. His office staff also was very helpful, and knowledgeable.

I saw Dr. Karaikovic after fracturing a vertebra. Dr. Karaikovic performed the Balloon Kyphoplasty outpatient surgery with amazing results. He told me that after surgery I would have no pain and I did not. It was incredible. It was the best experience someone could have that needed surgery. He's an excellent doctor that I would highly recommend.

I highly recommend Dr. Karaikovic to anyone who needs back surgery. I was in excruciating pain due to narrowing of the sciatic nerve passage (spondylolisthesis) in the L4 -L5 vertebrates. After surgery and period of recuperation, I was able to regain back functions and I am free from pain.

I had Balloon Kyphoplasty in the middle of August 2017. After a fall, I couldn't bend, twist or sleep in my bed-I had to sit on the couch surrounded by pillows. A few days after the surgery, I noticed the difference. For a compression fracture, I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Karaikovic to review options.
