I had to get an emergency microdiscectomy (L5S1) with Dr Kazan. He’s an amazing surgeon and very knowledgeable. I was back up and better than ever afterwards. I ride horses for a living (jumpers) so my back takes a beating. Still going strong 1.5 Years later!

I found Dr. Kazan to be very personable and explained the procedure in layman's terms so my husband and I could understand the procedure that would be performed. Experienced and confident without being arrogant. Answered all our questions to the fullest.

Also, 15 years before that he was the only doctor to diagnose a rare brain condition in my sister when not even the Mayo Clinic,...Read More
