I have had two partial knee replacements from Dr. Keppler. My knees are wonderful now. He explained everything each time. His staff is very friendly and very helpful. I recommend Dr. Keppler.
Mansfield, OH |
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.
Columbus, OH |
An excellent surgeon. Explained various procedures that were available for my condition. I felt very confident with him. I will recommend him
Ft Worth, TX |
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

Great Doctor ! I am pain free now after my surgery. I have no metal in my back and never felt better.
Brunswick, OH |
Very knowledgeable and good bedside manner. Have had 5 surgeries to fuse my back and full knee replacement. Have always recommended him to ask of my friends and family.
in Navarre, OH |
Outstanding surgeon. Up-to-date with latest medical technology. Highly recommended.
