Dr.Keiper was wonderful. He squeezed me into his schedule last minute for consult and surgery. Minimally invasive and no complications, his surgical team was top notch as well. I woke up with no pain and started to recover the feeling in my leg after about a week! Incision is healing well. I feel lucky to have had him operate on me, I flew all the way to Oregon from Wyoming specifically for his surgical abilities. No one I would trust more for a large extruded disk repair. Expecting a full recovery back to police work in 3 months.

He gave my Dad an extreme surgery when my Dad was at an advanced age, 87. We are still so shocked. My Dad struggled on for two more years. It was so evil, what Keiper did to my elderly parent, heartbreaking.

What a waste if time and money wating to see this arrogant joke of a so-called dr! Do yourself a huge favor and choose someone else...anyone else would be better than this jerk! This guy could care less about finding the cause of pain. I should have listened to my gut instinct...he is not even worthy of one star!

At seven weeks post-op, I am a walking miracle! Suffering with Spondylolisthesis, facet arthropathy, synovial cyst formation to produce severe canal stenosis.   I am so thankful I made the decision to use Dr. Glenn Keiper for my back surgery. In every connection within the medical field I came upon during this journey, Dr. Keiper was the only surgeon recommended. I wanted a surgeon on the cutting edge of technology and Dr. Keiper designed and developed the technique used on my spine.

Dr Keiper gave my almost 90 year old father a new lease on life! After my father, Mark Sterner’s 3rd back surgery with a different surgeon, he was still suffering with severe back pain. The pain was so severe that walking was difficult, but this previous surgeon offered him no hope. Dr. Keiper’s surgery was a huge success! After one week of recovery, Mark no longer has pain! He remains pain-free and has been walking further than he has in years! We are so grateful to see our father happy!

Highly recommend Dr Keiper. I am pain free, and it’s only been 4 weeks since my spinal fusion. My last 3 neurosurgeons had little hope for me and wanted to perform 3 surgeries that might work but it would take years to heal. A friend referred Dr Keiper. My first visit I hand him my MRI cds, after viewing them he calmly states, I can fix that, you will walk and be pain free, I am good at what I do. I choose the confident Dr that you may think is arrogant. He fixed me.

Kirstin Kodrack in Eugene – Dec 03, 2017
Don't know how he can still practice medicine. Spent 5 days in the hospital before he even came in. He spent more time walking in the door and back out then he did inside the room. The surgeon I had originally used was on vacation and was not available so I called home-waste of time. He refused to even look at my records and said he would just call my doctor in from vacation. Post surgery I am glad I did not let him perform the surgery after hearing about all of his botched surgeries.

Mike in Eugene, OR – Aug 23, 2016
Not only was he incredibly unfriendly, but he didn't seem to take any of my questions seriously and he made me feel like it was a waste of time for me to even be in his office. It was also very apparent that he had not looked at any of my x-rays or CT scan. He also felt it was important to remind me of how overweight I am. I left his office as confused as when I came in and with no help for my broken back, not to mention humiliated for thinking that I was going to get the help I needed.

Christie R. in Leaburg, OR – Jun 12, 2016
On the first visit, he was rather cold and stiff, but that's not at all unusual for surgeons. By the third visit he was much more relaxed and almost friendly. In the hospital, he was able to line up my spine, despite my having scoliosis, and go in and successfully clean out the nerve area that was just destroyed. It was only 2-3 days later that I was able to walk - and best of all was the enormous relief that came with no longer fearing I could fall at any moment. I highly recommend him.

What an incredibly arrogant doctor. Had to wait 3 months for a follow up appt after an MRI. Sat in waiting room for over 50 minutes. When I was finally graced with his presence, he spent all of 2 minutes talking to me and seemed completely oblivious to my case.
