Dr. Kahmann changed my life. After 20 years of chronic pain, he diagnosed & was able to repair my thoroughly messed up back. He treated me like an adult, listened to my concerns, and best of all, fixed the problem. I never felt dismissed or stupid like I have sometimes felt with other surgeons. Dr. Kahmann is a 5 Star surgeon! I give him the highest recommendation.
