I went into the hospital barely able to walk and came out pain free.

Lumbar Fusion

I received in-depth information on my status regarding my spinal fusion that had been conducted three months prior to this visit.

Results were uniformly positive and indicated that I was progressing in accordance with Dr. Kruger's expectations.

Under the care of Dr. Kruger (with great advices and motivation), I had lost around 40 pounds. Now I think that I could be ready to reach the next step and confirm how good is Dr. Kruger with his hands. Him and his office staff are a very efficient group of professionals working through this pandemic helping people like me under massive pain to get better lifestyle on our circumstances. His office staff are very good and fast with reports and paperwork. I'm glad that I count with Dr. Kruger to fix my back condition.
