After a crushed vertebrae had to be vacummed out and rebuilt Dr. V Kumar did such an excellent job rebuilding my c-4 vertebrae. I am fused from c-4 to c-5 but don't have much restrictions.

Dr kumar saved my life. As a 17 year kid he was exactly what I needed. Because of him I am going into medicine and healthcare administration. He is a little to the point, however, he explains everything very throughly and is someone I trust.
