We are praising God for Dr. Kropf and all of his excellent staff at the Spine Center!! Due to a very late diagnosis of tumors in and around my spine, we came to Dr. Kropf with an urgent, critical need for surgery ASAP. Dr..Kropf and Katie did an excellent job going over the imaging and the detailed plan for surgery with compassion and a genuine caring response to our questions. Sammy was also amazing in helping us through the process!!! My husband and I will be forever grateful!!

In February 2016 Dr. Kropf rebuilt my lumbar. The outcome was excellent. Ergo, based on my personal experience, I recommend Dr. Kropf to anyone who requires spinal surgery.

Dr. Kropf is wonderful. He is a very good listener and won't rush you. Sometimes as patients you have to explain in detail or read your list of questions. ?? He has never rushed me with my questions. He's very calm. You want a calm patient doctor operating on you. He has preformed surgery on me & it was a success! He's operated on my daughter and my son in law. I feel he is the best! The only trouble I have run into is my insurance company. when this is resolved, I will have surgery. ????

Dr. Kropf performed the removal of previously required dynasis surgery which was required for the correction of spondiolesthesis/facet syndrome/decompression/& replacement of a disc between L4 & L5 nine years earlier by another well respected surgeon. This surgery by Dr. Kropf was for additional damage caused by other progressive arthritic damage fr. L1 through and including L5/laminectomy/decompression/stabilization via 5 lumbar titanium screws & rods. Out of 5 rating. He gets a 10. Excelent

Dr. Kropf left me with spondylosis, tilted forward and to the right. He left me with a single disc to support my entire spine and now I am facing a full spine fusion, including iliac screws due to his inadequate ability. I would not go to him unless it was a very simple procedure.
