It has been one year since my l1-l2 spinal fusion. I cannot believe how I good my back feels. I thought I was done with any physical labor but I am putting an addition on my house this summer. I think Dr. Carkner is a "ROCKSTAR" and I told him so. I traveled from RI to Boston and I am glad I did. Cannot say enough or say how grateful I am. Thanks Doc

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Eric Carkner. Beyond his superior skill as a top-shelf orthopedic surgeon, he is a kind, compassionate listener who takes him time explaining procedures, addresses patient concerns and has strong follow through. I can't recommend him enough.
