After losing all hope that something could be done for my chronic neck and back pain, Dr. Kuklo came to the rescue and is helping me. He is a first class physician and I highly recommend him for your care.

Amazing and talented spine surgeon. After four previous spine surgeries (with other surgeons) and continued problems Dr. Kuklo did what is likely a final surgery. Almost a year later I am doing very well. At 78, I have a full life with regular travel. I highly recommend Dr. Kuklo.
