Specialties

Robert Kimber has the following 3 specialties

  • Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine

    If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
    However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.
    In addition to treating trauma to the musculoskeletal system, these doctors also deal with sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.

  • Neurological Surgery

    A neurological surgeon is a physician who surgically treats disorders of the nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
    In addition to treating trauma of the head and spine, these doctors also treat disorders like epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    Neurological surgeons can perform surgical procedures on the brain, such as stereotactic surgery, microsurgery, endoscopic surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular image guided methods.

He is all about the patient

Dr. Kimber explained my problem to me and what needed to be done. I was impressed by the fact that he seemed honest and in it for the patient. I have no more pain in my hips and legs after my surgery and I am still healing. Shirley W Sims Gulfport MS

He has a big smile for you every day

Elizabeth Ann O'Neal I had trouble with laundry cooking and household chores before I came to Dr. Kimber due to the pain in my back arms and legs. He always has a big smile for you when you come in and he is very thorough and cares about your comfort. He has great attention to detail. Everyone in the office is very friendly and offers assistance. I would recommend him to all.

Pain free! Thank You Dr Kimber

Since Dr. Kimber did my surgery I no longer am on any pain meds, no longer need to use my walker and I am feeling just great! Dr. Kimber didn't give me false hope. Everything healed just as he said it would and I am very grateful.
