      I really don't know the words to express my respect & appreciation for Dr. Ciccarelli, his PA Jason Douglas and his entire staff. They are wonderful and caring people. I was to the point of not being able to walk a block w/o sitting down. I now walk 1 1/2 mi. in 30 mins. w/o stopping. Had been told by another Dr. that nothing could be done for me. Was taking the max dose of Gabapentin & Percocet with no relief, now I take nothing since my spinal fusion. Would do it again with no reservations.

      I was referred to Dr Ciccarelli by another Orthopedic Surgeon who is the head of a different group. He said if he would need spinal surgery that either Dr Ciccarelli for the lumbar or Dr Jackson for the cervical were the very best. The reason is that they have the least amount of infection rate in the state of Kansas. WOW another ortho saying this made me want to see Dr Ciccarelli for my lumbar spine condition. From the first apt toafter surgery his office staff, Jason his PA & MD were A+!
      in Kansas City, MO |
      My low back pain increased over the last 12 years to the point that my quality of life was greatly diminished. I went to Dr. Ciccarelli for a consultation to determine what could be done. My condition is spondylolisthesis. Dr. Ciccarelli perfomed a posterior lumbar fusion. I wish I could have had this done years sooner. My quality of life has been restored and I am totally pain free. Dr. Ciccarelli and his staff were awesome through the whole experience!
      in Lawrence KS |
      I thought Dr Ciccarelli and his P.A. Jason were wonderful! I'm 5 months out from fusion surgery on 2 vertebrae's. I tried everything from epidural's, physical therapy and acupuncture. Nothing worked! They helped me and I believe that I probably wouldn't be able to walked now if it wasn't for them. I also need to add that his Assistant Laura is wonderful also! Marsha of Lawrence

      Back surgery is a scary thing. Dr. Ciccarelli came recommended to me by another physician. He was very straight forward and from my untrained eye very skilled. I am very happy with the results of my surgery.
      in Leavenworth, KS |
      I had a very herniated disc in my lumbar and never having had surgery before I did everything I could to avoid having this procedure. I wasted my time doing injections that if my case had been milder, there would of been a chance for it to improve on its own. Dr. Ciccarelli was very highly recommended by friends and family. Despite my terror going in, knowing the capable hands of Dr. C my only regret is that I did not see him sooner. He is very conservative and will only operate if neccesary.
      in Gardner, KS |
      I spent 10 mths trying to find a diagnosis with zero actual relief. The day I met Dr. C, I broke down in tears. The pain was so bad I was living on Hydrocodone & couldn't find relief in any position. I'd wake up multiple times at night feeling like a bolt of lightning had struck me. Within a week of meeting him, Dr. C had performed surgery at L5S1 and I'm now 8 wks post op and back to living an active life again. I cannot thank him enough! He literally saved me and gave me joy in life again
      in Cameron Mo. 64429 |
      Wonderful Doctor. Kind & compassionate . He gave me my life back! I couldn't walk very far at all & he was the only doctor that said he could help me. He was honest & said it might not be perfect but he thought he could help me. I respect that. I was so happy to hear someone would even try. I felt I had already lost a year of my life seeing Doctor after Doctor. He performed surgery on my lower back cleaning an area out around my nerve & guess what?!?! I can walk again. Contact me for more info!

      After 3 not so successful back surgery's with different doctors, Dr. Ciccarelli was the first one that didn't just dismiss my issues, and listened to me. The spinal fusion Dr. Ciccarelli performed on my back was six month ago, and for the first time in 5 years I feel that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks also goes to his assistant Jason who always was there for me and Laura who made me feel special every time I came to the office.

      I was very fearful of having back surgery. After meeting with Dr. Ciccarelli and his excellent staff, my fears quickly dissipated. I had an allover informative, calming and caring experience with everyone at Premier before, during and after surgery. Absolutely the best care in the City!
      in Kansas City, MO |
      I was very hesitant to have back surgery having read a number of negative outcomes on the Internet. Eventually, however, my pain worsened to where I had no choice. My family physician and my pain doctor both recommended Dr. Ciccarrelli. I was impressed with him the minute I met him. He operated on me for a slipped disk (fusion surgery) and for spinal stenosis. Not only did I heal up quickly, but I had an excellent outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Ciccarelli to anyone contemplating back surgery.
      in Kansas City, MO |
      Very personable. Cared about what I was going through, and how I felt. Very confident that he could help me. And I feel great. I tell everybody I talk to that has back problems to go to Premier Spine Care. Ann.

      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.
