      Had sciatica surgery about seven years ago with Dr. Kleiner. After seven years, I don't really remember much regarding the questions below, except that Dr Kleiner was a very compassionate and friendly doctor. My sciatica has never bothered me since, and isn't that what matters the most? Being able to go on with your life without pain and drugs? I'm very happy with the results, still.

      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.

      Dr. Kleiner's Care Philosophy

      The critical avenue in my practice is diagnosis. Since this process is so important in determinng a pain generator, my philosophy is to perform the history and physical myself. The patients see me every clinic visit. One of my professors told me that is you listen to a patient long enough, they'll tell you what's wrong, and if you listen to them longer, they tell you how to treat them. Studies have shown that a careful history gives the doctor the diagnosis in 80% of cases. That being said, I rely on a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. I utilize a diagnostic injection specialist, therapists in chiropractic, acupuncture or PT and pain psychology who are skilled in their approach. If surgery is necessary, my patients have the benefit of the correct diagnosis, an opportunity to have attempted all non-operative avenues and to have the most precise and minimally invasive surgical (MIS) strategies available anywhere in the country.
