Dr. Kern performed surgery on me after I experienced a debilitating cervical radiculopathy for unknown reasons at 47 years of age. I am a female medical professional with many years of experience working with cervical and lumbar pain patients. I knew what the future looked like for me with and without the surgery. I opted to have the surgery as Dr. Kern took a lot of time with me reviewing my MRI and EMG findings concluding that this may be my best option. I was convinced that my weakness and numbness in my arm was not going to resolve on it's own with or without physical therapy. He performed an artificial disc arthroplasty procedure resulting in complete resolution of my symptoms with fast recovery of function in my left shoulder and no numbness in my left anterior chest wall or shoulder. I am very pleased with his skill and his decision making regarding the best options for treatment. I highly recommend this surgeon!
Both my husband and I have now been treated by Dr Kern. He has done one surgery on me with great results. My husband has had two brain surgeries by him. He was the one physician thst I knew I could trust and always gave it to me straight. During this long and difficult period he was always there , even before he was officially on the case, at my request. His concern was always genuine and concerns. I have complete confidence in him and appreciate him so much
