Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kiester "While Dr. Kiester has been on the forefront for developing new surgical devices and is a technical consultant to industry, he is very conservative and will often choose not to implant any device, if he feels that is what is best for the patient. Microsurgery is very effective in some cases, and in others it should be avoided. He is very excited by the new fusion technology has almost completely eliminated the need for taking bone graft. This eliminates a major source of pain for the patient."

in Wildomar, CA |
8 weeks post spine surgery and couldn't be happier with the results. He did a beautiful job on my scar, my posture has greatly improved, and I'm told I look more youthful (bonus!). He's a excellent doctor, and I'm extremely pleased.
in Riverside, CA |
Dr. Kiester repaired a pathological fracture of my C3 vertebra. The operation was extremely difficult and many bad things could have happened to me during the operation. The operation was a complete success; he gave me my life back. On top of everything, he showed a good, dry, sense of humor that I appreciated greatly.
in Sunset Beach, CA |
Dr Keister and his team ultimately saved my life by giving me my life back ! After 5 years of hell after an injury which included 2 previous unsuccesfull surgeries. He found major issues on top of the ones I knew about. The thing about these injuries he found is that the 10 other surgeons I had seen before him did not see these huge issues ! After surgery I looked forward to seeing his smiling face every morning. That's very rare with surgeons. You saved my life. FOREVER GRATEFUL Melinda
Anaheim, CA |
I was required to have a range of motion test performed to present to a Naval Medical Board, relating to an injury resulting in degenerative disc disease and nerve damage. I showed (and explained the importance of the wording) to Dr. Keister the wording required containing the key phrases needed for the letter to be received by the Naval Medical Board. He ignored my request and his resultant write-up ignored key phrasing resulting in loss of all my retirement pay, benefits, and insurance.
in Irvine, Ca. |
This Dr. has put my mind at ease. I'm so grateful that we met. OMG he is the greatest.
