Dr. Kelkar did great things for me. He's very direct and very personable. My procedure on the L4/L5 region on my spine was quick and painless (In fact, my procedure is one he performs regularly, even among his family and friends). Thank you, Doctor! P.S. For you Star Wars fans, he's had Facetime with THE Mark Hamill!!!

Dr. Kelkar is a wonderful surgeon with an excellent support staff! He performed a spinal fusion on me in March. I have been impressed with his professional expertise and his honesty. Thanks to him and his staff I have known what to expect every step of the way!

April 16 2019 was the second time I was seen by Dr. Kelkar. He amazed me with what he accomplished that day. Because of the excruciating pain I was in he admitted me into the hospital, consulted with other specialists and performed a 5 hour surgery that evening. He is an amazing surgeon with impeccable bedside manner. He literally gave me my life back!

I had two spinal surgeries and Dr. Kelkar was the Best. He is an Excellent Surgeon with a wonderful, friendly personality. Dr. Kelkar staff is very friendly, professional and patient with everyone. The most impressive thing I remember other than the Wonderful surgery I received was his friendly smile before surgery. I was in a lot of pain before my surgery but after the surgery No Pain with not a scar where the incision was. Dr. Kelkar is the Best Spinal and Brain surgeon you could have in your time of need. F.

I was referred to Dr. Kelkar by my primary care doctor. At every visit, I have been pleased by the friendliness, care, and professionalism of the staff. Dr. Kelkar was exceptionally attentive in accessing my situation, patient to thoroughly answer my questions and concerns, and definitely skillful and genuine in his care. I was given a prompt date for surgery and am very pleased with the result! The microdiscectomy eliminated the severe pain I had been experiencing.
