Dr Keppler is the best Orthopedic Surgeon, I have had major problems with my back for the last 20 years.. I had one surgeon in the area where I live botch up my back, I wasn't getting better in fact worse, just about to the point I couldn't walk. When my insurance changed where I was able to pick my Dr. I chose Dr. Keppler, he was highly recommended. I am glad I was referred to him it took many surgeries to correct the issue. It is corrected and I am able to walk without any problems.

Dr. Kepler performed extensive back surgery on me in May 2015 at St Vincent. Bone from my hip, fusion, rods and pins. I have had consistent pain before and after the surgery until I had another back surgery done eight weeks ago at Lutheran Hospital by Dr. Orr. Immediately upon standing after the procedure I could stand up perfectly straight with no pain except in the incision itself! I thank God for Dr Orr and being pain-free so soon after surgery! Do your homework before selecting a doctor

I wouldn't be walking if it weren't for his talent. I had a very long and complicated back surgery. 7 hours, 7 procedures. Other doctors are amazed that I came through it and am doing as well as I am thanks to him.

Terrible experience - went in for 'minor' arthroscopic knee surgery and can barely walk now. Am in constant chronic state of extreme pain all day, every day - and night. 15 months post surgery - Dr. Keppler will not even return my phone calls. Save yourself lifelong pain and see someone else!

I was concerned about a spinal fusion after hearing all the bad stories about it. But the pain had become unmanageable after a work related accident. I was referred to Dr.Keppler by my physical therapist when symptoms didn't lighten up. Dr.Keppler performed an anterior spinal fusion at L5-S1 in February of 2015 and I feel so much better now. Nerves regenerating is still an ongoing process considering the damage was hidden from me by the doctor I was forced to see by my former employer. I may nee
