Dr. Kainth was great in all aspects. I got 4 opinions prior to surgery and Dr. Kainth was the best at explaining the entire process and working with me on my after care plan. Surgery went great and I felt immediate relief from the pain I was in prior to the surgery.

Dr. Kainth has given me a new lease on life. With humility and grace, knowledge and expertise. He has a gentle bedside manner and listens carefully. When he is consulting with you or seeing you in surgery, he makes you feel as if nothing is more important than your well-being. My surgery was amazing. I haven't felt this well in five years. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have Dr. Kainth as their surgeon is most fortunate indeed! Thank you, Dr. Kainth!

Kind, compassionate and really caring. Dr. Kainth spent time explaining the procedure and all the steps after surgery. I had seen many other spine surgery docs but he was the only one that spent the time with me. I had minimally invasive surgery on my back and all my leg pain disappeared. I even went home the same day. He is the best. Thanks Dr. Kainth!!

I am a health care provider (nurse) and work with many surgeons. I can say without a doubt that Dr. Kainth is kind, compassionate and an excellent surgeon. He specializes in spine surgery and does the most cervical spine surgeries in our hospital and in the area. I was having very bad arm pain and we attempted every nonsurgery step. I ended up having 2 level ACDF and so happy I did. He treated me like family. And his staff is amazing as well.

Dr. Kainth recently performed a very successful 4 segment cervical spine surgery on my husband. He is an amazing doctor. He shows he cares when making sure to take whatever time needed to explain, asking multiple times if you have any additional questions. I also have seen Dr. kainth for neck pain and herniated disks. We highly recommend Dr. kainth.

Dr. Kainth was absolutely amazing! I had completed consults with a couple other neurosurgeons before a friend recommended Dr. Kainth to me, and I'm so glad he did! Dr. Kainth's calm, kind demeanor before and after my surgical procedures put me and my family at ease. He took the time to listen to and understand my concerns and situational limitations, and was extremely thorough in his explanations, especially in terms of what I should expect before and after. Highly recommend him to all!

Dr. Kainth is amazing! I would highly recommend. After a year of pain & discomfort, injections and several doctors ... I'm free from pain, thank you! Dr. Kainth performed a right-side laminectomy & I have zero pain. I went in for out patient procedure, we in/out of hospital in about 6 hours total ... woke up pain free & have taken zero pain medication since the procedure.

FOLLOWUP TO MY 1ST REVIEW ON DEC 16, 2017. 4 months after my surgery (laminectomy, removal of cyst in spinal cord and fusion of L3-L4), on Nov. 30th, 2017, I was back to playing golf! Zero pain since recovery from anesthesia and back to playing golf twice a week. Dr. Kainth has transformed my life! It never crossed my mind until I met Dr. Kainth this past November but I now know that I'd NEVER consider back surgery from an orthopedic surgeon who was not ALSO a neurosurgeon....

Dr. Kainth is amazing. He did an awesome fixing my neck. I have absolutely no complaints. I healed quickly and couldn't be happier with the level of service I received. He is very caring toward his patients and his staff is wonderful. He did surgery on myself and my cousin within 2 weeks of each other. We are both doing exceptionally well and I would recommend him to everyone. There is no need to live in pain anymore when you have someone as good as Dr. Kainth to do your surgery.

My first impression of Dr Kainth was positive. He listened to me and discussed possible options pending an MRI. We reviewed the MRI together and he showed me the areas that needed attention. He offered me 2 surgical procedures. I had already had injections in my back. I opted for L4-L5 Laminectomy. . I could barely walk up and down stairs without considerable pain before surgery. Afterward I walked up stairs with no pain. I did not need any pain meds. and 8 wks later I am doing great!

I had sudden onset of constant and severe pain in my right leg x 2 mos. My diagnosis was L4/L5 arthritis with protruding disc. When I saw Dr Kainth, he was so kind and patient, answering all my pre-op questions. I asked him how soon the pain would go away post-op. He told me it would be gone the next day. He did a great job on my back. I would never choose anyone else but him. He was correct, no pain the next day! 100% better. I trust him completely. He is a very good surgeon & so caring .
