Lumbar Fusion

DR. Kruger was kind and compassionate. He lets you know exactly what is going on and guides you how to proceed. He looks you eye to eye and gives his honest recommendation. I felt very comfortable Dr Kruger and treated me as patient with that was in horrible pain from scaitica herniated disc. I had severe sciatica pain starting from my lower back to calf and down to my foot. I could not walk more than 10 minutes with this pain and had to rest each and every time. I had a huge herniation on L4/L5 that almost closed my spinal cord. He is an amazing doctor and I thank each day for giving my walking back. This is the day after surgery and I am walking with no problem and my limping went away and I am walking straight and good posture. I am only taking Tylenol and that is all I need. My son came along with me and he said Dr Kruger was an excellent doctor and he was impressed with Dr. Kruger's style, and truthfulness. He is a very talented doctor and way up on the charts with knowledge and expertise. Saint Francis has a wonderful doctor on their team. Dr Kruger got me walking again, I could not walk for three months and fixed me up. now i can walk all over now. God Bless Him.

Office Visit / Follow-up

I am a visual learner so I asked to have my x rays displayed. It helped me to better understand the surgery I will need to have. Was disappointed not to see Dr. Kruger himself, however his PA spent considerable time with me to try to explain the surgeries I will need.

Dr Kruger and his staff are experts in their field and although Dr Kruger did not believe that my condition was surgical, he offered advice that has been helpful. His PA Marci, gave me a referral to Intergrated Medicine at St Francis Hospital, which has been extremely helpful! Thank you!

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF)

New what had to be done. And explained it to me

Treatment / Procedure

Good conversation. Yes! My appointment was at 3:30PM and I was in and out before 4PM

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr Kruger was very professional and customer friendly. After my examination he asked if there were any questions or concerns. He shows that he cares for his patients and not just for money. To me I felt reassured as a patient.

Office Visit / Follow-up

The doctor didn't show me, and go over my X-ray's with me. I expected the Doctor to go over my X-ray's with me so I would understand my medical problem, and understand the condition of the Discs in my back and why I had so much pain. But, Now, in order to get a proper diagnosis I need to see another Orthopedic Doctor.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr. Kruger is smart.
