As a result of a fall, I was admitted to Evanston Hospital with a complicated fracture at the top of my left femur. Dr. Karaikovic was the orthopedic surgeon on duty, and he performed surgery the next day. This proceeded smoothly, involving the insertion of a rod and 2 pins. The surgery was just the beginning - I spent 6 weeks in rehab, unable to bear weight on my left leg, PT twice a day. It's now a year post-surgery, and my leg has healed well. I really think that sessions of physical therapy, exercises at home, walking and aqua exercise have all helped me regain excellent mobility. From the beginning, Dr. K was clear about the dangers of NOT doing all this "work", and he was right. He certainly motivated me to get moving! His manner is very direct, which I appreciate. Thanks, Dr. K! Jane T.
My mother age 86 needed to have a T10 Fusion. After a short stint in Rehab, she has gained her old life back with NO pain whatsoever. Dr. K did a Fantastic Job and I would recommend him to everyone that might need back surgery. Thank-you. Jeffrey Lamm
During an appointment with Dr. Karaikovic, I was given two options to heal my compression fracture: a brace which I would wear for possibly months or Balloon Kyphoplasty. I chose the Balloon Kyphoplasty and I'm glad that I did. The minimally invasive surgery was done as an outpatient and I was pain free within a week.
I had extreme pain in my lower back which radiated through my left hip down my left leg. Just prior to surgery, I could not walk or stand for more than 10 minutes. I would walk and have to sit down for a couple of minutes which would calm the pain, but would again flair up when I continued to walk. When I took the necessary MRIs, etc it was determined my spine was now pressing against nerves that caused my pain. I was at the time in a situation that would have normally prevented me from getting surgery, but I was in so much pain I literally pleaded to have the surgery no matter what. I was desperate. The approval to have the surgery came with Dr Karaikovic's approval/recommendation upon looking at all the results. His agreement on my condition got the approval to have surgery. To summarize, I can now walk miles without pain. I totally believe in Dr Karaikovic's abilities as a surgeon, and I wouldn't be in the condition I'm in now without him, but everybody's situation is different and you have to weigh the options. I was in so much pain I knew my condition wouldn't get any better so I opted for the surgery. For me, it was the best decision I could have made.
I had my first major back surgery 12 years ago wiht Dr. Karaikovic and realized about 10 months ago that I probably needed another surgery. I waited 6 months to make an appointment with Dr. Karaikovic and my second major spinal fusion surgery took place on 8/4/16. I realized one day while washing dishes and crying that I had to find the courage to have this second surgery. With the help of Dr. Karaikovic, I faced my surgery and four months later am pain free and getting ready to start a new life with my husband in Texas at age 65 years old. I wll forever grateful to Dr. Karaikovic for giving me my life back.
