      I had a nerve block and ablation done after sustaining a neck injury in college. Thanks to Dr Kulkarni I was able to play basketball again less than a year later after almost 2 years or suffering. That was the best decision I ever made and I thank him and Dr Jenkinson for seeing me through it all. I think about them often and bless them both!

      Dr. Kulkarni and Tasha Bowers his assistant are great. I am 33 and have had 2 seperate cervical fusions, and suffer from chronic pain. Dr. Kulkarni has given me 3 nerve blocks and medication. I would like other alternatives than pain meds but nothing else can help me. He listens to me and cares about my wellbeing. I would love to have a brand new neck, but that isn't an option, unfortunately. If it wasn't for him and Tasha I don't know what I would do.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
