Dr. Tekula's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tekula "As a board-certified Neurosurgeon, I enjoy the opportunity to help my patients lead active lives. I specialize in back, neck and spine, utilizing the most advanced and state-of-the-art techniques. My interest stemmed from studying the nervous system at Northwestern University where I learned how rewarding it is to use my skills to improve others' lives and alleviate pain. Your spinal condition is as unique as you are. While your spinal condition may fall into a category, you do not, nor do your needs or preferences. I will take your questions and concerns seriously and will work with you to explain the treatment options. It is important to me that you are a part of the decision-making process for your care, so you are confident in your treatment. In my free time, I enjoy downhill skiing, wake surfing, riding motorcycles and spending time with my family."

I've had 2 lumbar surgeries by Dr. Tekula and am facing a third one. I never even considered any one else. I'm a health professional and have recommended her to family and friends. Her knowledge, with her skills and bedside manner, you will be hard pressed to find comparable care.
