Dr. Karl treats most types of pain syndromes, including back, limb, neck, and joint pain. He focuses on non-surgical treatment options for Pain Management using a multidisciplinary approach.

Physical therapy and exercise also are used for patients who would benefit from those treatments.

Dr. Karl grew up in the Western Chicago suburbs, and attended Benedictine University. He and his wife both attended St. George's University for medical school.
