      Dr Kralick gave me my life back. I had serious cervical spine compression causing me horrible pain, numbness and a very difficult time when I had to walk anywhere. On November 12, 2015 when I awoke from my two level cervical dissectomy and fusion I felt better instantly. No more pain. I'm so thankful for Dr Kralick. He was so compassionate and intelligent at the same time. So down to earth and answered all my questions. Thank you Dr Kralick.

      I knew the minute I met Dr Kralick I had found the right person to help me with my back problem. After explaining my symptoms he knew exactly what I was describing, he was able to confirm what the MRI had described and what course of action was needed. He made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision on how to proceed. I would recommend him to anyone who suffers from sciatic nerve pain.

      Dr Kralick has been the most knowlegeable & compassionate doctor I've ever seen. His ability to tackle a challenge with expert care & genuine concern is unsurpassed. He cared for me for 5 years & performed 3 surgeries, restoring my quality of life each time. He always respected my preferences & encouraged open communication. Despite the complex nature of my conditions, Dr Kralick was prepared to consult his colleagues & do research. I felt he was committed to the best solution.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
