My special needs adult daughter unable to enjoy a short walk or swim without becoming bent over and and in extreme pain. Dr. Kralik knew from our first visit he would be able to help her. We decided on surgery instead of prolonginging her pain and trying therapy or shots. BEST DECISION EVER. Dr. Kralik made us feel at ease and took his time explaining everything. She was back to normal the day after the operation. NO PAIN AT ALL . We Salute you Dr. K !!!

Thank God for dr Kralick. I had unreal pain for months. No one could help me. Dr Kralick saw me and said you need to have surgery immediately. He made the time and did the surgery. It’s been a week and I’m doing fantastic. No more pain. This man is a kind, caring person. Thanks again Dr Kralick

Hands down knows what he is doing. I went in his office barely walking, he diagnosed my problem and told me I was a perfect candidate for the procedure and now i'm walking like like I never had any problems. If you listen to his instruction step by step he'll have you back to normal in no time. Thank You Dr. Kralick

Dr. Kralick was very pleasant and he explained every detail of the procedure my husband was having done. After our visit we were very confident with him doing his surgical procedure. We would highly recommend him to whom ever needs to have surgery. Friendly, compassionate, informative, has a great personality and makes you feel comfortable. He took his time with us and answered all our questions and concerns. My husbands surgery was a success, thanks to Dr. Kralick.

I have two spinal stimulators one for left leg and one for lower back pain the implants were done by another doctor (worker's compensation) the one for my lower back pain. Was placed wrong and didn't give me any type of relief after looking into it the placement was wrong so Dr.kralic removed it and put a new one five days after surgery Abbott rep programmed it instantly relied most of my pain on a 1 to 10 a 6 and that was his first. Thank you Dr.kralic you and your nurse God send .

I had a very large herniated disc that was causing sciatica and major pain. It was getting worse daily, to the point that I couldn’t stand up straight, couldn’t walk normally, I had tingling down my legs and sometimes weakness. Dr Kralick took me in for surgery early, when I came out of surgery I was sore, but the pain was gone. I was able to go home same day. I am so thankful for Dr Kralick and will be recommending him to anyone and everyone!

I recently had a Lamenectomy preformed by Dr. Kralick at Shore Memorial Hospital and the entire procedure was far above my expectations. Every detail was addressed and taken care of in a professional manner. If you are looking for a Neurosurgeon who cares, I highly recommend Dr. Kralick, he has restored my quality of life by stabilizing my spine. His credentials sre far above most other Surgeons. AAA+++

After 2 years of experiencing severe back and leg pain, 2 weeks ago Dr. Kralick performed microsurgery on my back. Already the pain has greatly subsided, feels better every day, and I expect to be pain-free within a few weeks. He's an excellent surgeon, professional, caring, really listens, and explains everything well. We're lucky to have such a renowned neurosurgeon in our area. His nursing staff is amazing too.

I was referred to Dr. Kralick by a fellow nurse after she had been very happy with the surgery he did on her back. He is very personable and was willing to answer all my questions about my surgery. He is very experienced and thorough. I was glad that I did not have to drive very far for my surgery.

Dr. Kralick was extremely affable and easy to talk to. He explained everything in depth to me and ordered the appropriate tests. He made me feel very comfortable with our plan of action. I liked that he did not go down the "what if this happens road" as this was my first visit and not the appropriate time to discuss those scenarios. His credentials are impressive, which is important when choosing a surgeon. I believe anyone would be well served in seeking him out for an initial consult.
