My experience with Dr. Kelkar was excellent in every way. I was referred to Dr. Kelkar when my symptoms of Trigemenial Neuralgia worsened. T.N. is a condition which causes severe facial pain , associated with shooting and jabbing pain through the tooth and jaw that may feel like an electric shock . At 1 zoom meeting with Dr. Kelkar , he was empathetic as he explained to me his knowledge of my condition, his experiences or prior surgeries performed, and his ability to help me. Surgery was performed within weeks, and I returned home pain-free. Dr. Kelkar gave me back my Quality of life back .I will be forever thankful for the successful surgery performed at the skilled and gifted hands of Dr. Kelkar . Many Thanks .

Referred and seen the same week. Offered conservative treatment first. Ended up with worsening symptoms-surgery inevitable either way. Dr Kelkar and his tram listened explained everything more than once prior to surgery. Respectful and compassionate care by his entire team.His NP Becky is wonderful!

I had a procedure done by dr Kelkar and everything went extremely well. He is engaged and has an extremely competent support staff, which is just as important. I will recommend dr Kelkar to others in the future.

Dr. Kelkar is absolutely the BEST hands down! I never thought I would say this, but having my ACDF with fusion L5-6 was the best decision I have ever made. Dr Kelkar did a phenomenal job and he gave me back my life!!! I thank God for sending me to Dr. Kelkar and I thank him very much for everything!!!

Dr. Kelkar performed a two-level cervical fusion on my cervical spine (C4-C6). Home from surgery in 24 hours and back to work in a month. My numbness/pain is gone. He is a personable, knowledgeable professional with an incredible bedside manner. I couldn't be more pleased with him or my results. See him!

Dr. Kelkar is an intelligent, thoughtful, quick to laughter and down to earth individual. He carefully explains the procedure he is going to perform in a manner that you can understand. He talks to you, not at you. I was diagnosed with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. And two hours after my surgery I could raise my left leg. That sounds pretty simple. However I couldn’t do that for 8 months before my surgery. Thanks again doctor.

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!!!

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.
