He is not just good...he is great. My wife had 7 hr. back surgery in Reno, NV two years ago and after a year her local DR. said he was done with her and left her on her own (would not see her anymore). She was walking bent over and in constant pain She found Dr. Klineberg and he operated on her aprox. 8 mos. ago and the difference is amazing. She now walks upright and the pain level is decreasing. Thank you Dr. Klineberg.

I am a 70y/o Ironman Triathlon athlete who reached a point that I could not walk 50 yds. Dr. Klineberg and his team of dedicated Dr.s had me back biking, swimming and running in short order. Their skills and caring attitudes were beyond my expectations. Two years out and I am completely back to normal and looking at doing another Ironman. I can never thank them enough. I would excitedly recommend Dr. Klineberg and the UC Davis Spine Center without hesitation. Thank you, Dr. Klineberg.

I was referred to Dr. Klineberg because of severe leg pain caused by a pinched nerve and scoliosis. Walking for me was very painful, and I was bent over. I am now fused from T10 to the pelvis. Pain during the recovery was terrible, but it was worth it. Now I can walk for as long as I like with NO pain at all! Standing or sitting is not a problem either. If I had to make the decision again to have the surgery, I would do so. Dr. Klineberg is a fantastic doctor, and I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Klineberg did a MAJOR back surgery on my 81 year old mother. This was a risky surgery, but the pain she was in outweighed the risk. She is now 1-year postop and 1 inch taller. She had screws & rods from T9-pelvis; spinal fusion T9-pelvis; spinal decompression L1,2,3 & 4; cut/realign at T12/L1, L1/2, L2/3, L3/4; ligament reconstruction T7/8 & T8/9. She has NO PAIN anymore is doing great. My mom can't say THANK YOU enough to Dr. Klineberg and his team. I could go on and on. *****

Dr. Klineberg fused four of my spinal vertibrae two years ago when I was 66. Before the surgery, I was unable to stand for more than 5 minutes without looking for a chair to sit in. I couldn't walk 100 yards without having to squat and stretch. Following surgery, I was able to resume golf (in about 6 months) and can stand, walk or hike for a long as I like. I truly believe I can LIVE the rest of my life, thanks to the outstanding job that Dr. Klineberg did on me.

Dr. Klineberg is an extremely caring and competent spinal surgeon. I would without a doubt and with no hesitation refer him to my closest friends and family members. At age 82 and due to severe scoliosis, I had an extremely complex multi-level spinal fusion and Dr. Klineberg was there for me at every turn. He and his team are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and the hospital staff was as well. Dr. Klineberg treated me with dignity and respect throughout the process.

Dr Klineberg is amazing! He spent plenty of time with each visit I had with him. He clear explained my situation, options and a plan. He took time and answered every questiona I had in detail, I never felt rushed. He genuinely cares about his patients! I'm very happy with the surgery (and results) he performed. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Klineberg game my life back. I had spinal fusion at age 72. I returned to work teaching aerobics/weights and entering road races. He calmed all my fears about spinal surgery. He answered all my questions and never rushed appointments. I have referred people to him. He is the best.

Dr. Klineberg performed surgery on 5 vertebrae in my neck, relieving nearly unbearable symptoms that had incapacitated me for 1 1/2 years. Dr. Klineberg's expertise and caring manner gave me confidence in the outcome and I was not at all afraid to have the surgery. His team, part of the UC Davis Medical School and Spine Center, were excellent in every way, as was my stay at the hospital (except for the food!). When I had post-surgical complications and emergency care, his team were on board.
