I have never felt more confident in a health care provider or more comfortable. Dr Greene immediately understood my condition, my solution and executed complete relief quickly and efficiently. After months of suffering it all seemed too easy and I attribute every piece of that ease to Dr Karl A Greene and his entire team.

I came in with nerve issues in my neck, it turned out I had two bulged disks and the pain was pretty bad at times. I came to the Neurologist Spine Center of Wisconsin Appleton for help and after trying a cortisone injection in my neck, that only helped for 2 days, I started to look into surgical options. That’s when I met with Dr. Greene and with in 5 minutes of meeting him I knew I wanted him to do the surgery. He was confident in his skills as a surgeon with out being arrogant, he talked to my parents and I like regular people and even took the time to get to know each of us a little bit on a personal level. My disk replacement surgery went smoothly and my recovery was really easy. I was back to work in 2 weeks and could have gown back sooner if I had needed too. Now 3 months removed from my surgery I am back to 100% and back to doing all the things I love and I have Dr. Greene and the great staff at Neuro Spine Center of Wisconsin Appleton to thank for it.

Dr. Greene was very personable and took the time to explain everything related to my surgery. He and his assistant, Anthony, both treated me with respect and took the time to answer my questions. I felt very confident in Dr. Greene's knowledge. My surgery was well needed and he saw the urgency to make sure it was performed quickly before things progressed. I would highly reccomend Dr. Greene

I have now had 2 different surgeries with Dr. Greene. I could not ask for better care. Not only did he explain everything before surgery, he went over my test results with me, and showed me on the model what we were looking at on my MRI's. He then showed me every piece that would be used for my fusion. Dr. Greene and Anthony Lee, are tremendous. Anthony actually called me himself the day before my surgeries to check in. Following surgeries, they would check in just to see how I was doing. This is in addition to the office visits. They both listened to what I was saying and asked me questions on terms I understood. I will never go anywhere else.

Dr. Greene performed surgery to correct lumbar L2-L3 stenosis. Dr. Greene is excellent not only with his surgical skills but also his diagnostic skills. His communication of the issue along with his confidence on fixing the problem helps eliminate anxiety. Follow up with he and the staff at Neurospine Center of Wisconsin is also excellent. This is the place to go if you have back issues.

Dr. Hendricks performed an E.M.G which indicated carpal tunnel issues. He recommended Dr. Greene for surgery. From our first visit to our last, I felt totally comfortable with him and Anthony, his PA. Dr. Greene explained everything in detail prior to the surgery, and was very caring after, asking if I had any questions and wanted to be sure I knew what my limits were. The operation was done at Aurora in Oshkosh. All involved were incredibly caring and really made me feel like family. I will be having the other hand done as well. A+ for all.

After pinching a nerve in my back, I saw Dr. Greene for a surgical consult. He and his PA were very unprofessional. They both said that what I was saying didn't make sense to them and therefore wouldn't do surgery. I'm not sure what didn't make sense as I had severe back pain with pain radiating down my leg and feet numbness. I then seen Dr. DeWitt, also from NeuroSpine, and he had no problem performing the ALIF surgery that I much needed. And it was amazing, he literally gave me my life back. All the pain and almost all of the numbness went away immediately after surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. DeWitt by far over Dr. Greene.

Dr. Greene was fantastic...!!! I was suffering from terrible shooting sciatica pain in both legs, and after Dr. Greene performed surgery, the pain was gone. It was the greatest feeling I had in months. He has a great personality and a good sense of humor. He explains things in detail and will answer all your questions. Also, his assistant Anthony, and everyone who works with or for him are very courteous and friendly. I would recommend them to anyone...!!!

Suffered chronic pain from 2006 until January 2nd, 2019. under the advice of Dr Joseph from integrated pain management, Dr. Green removed a piece of hardware in my body that nobody would remove or listen to me that it was causing pain. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on treatments 3 other physicians recommended that would supposedly help. I spent 13 years of being flat out told no we will not remove that. Dr Greene and Dr Joseph gave me my life back.

Dr. Karl A. Greene saved my career as a law enforcement officer. Outstanding care from onset to post op. After suffering a herniation in my L4 that was pinching a nerve causing substantial pain and loss of use, Dr. Greene did a microdiscectomy saving me. I love him.

When Dr Sellers said I needed to see the surgeon I was scared. Met with Dr Greene and we both agreed I needed this done. Honestly my MRI scared me. The surgery great, I feel so much better. II have already recommended him to a friend.
