Meet CJ Kleck, MD

I treat patients as I would like to be treated myself, or as I would want my family members treated. It is important that patients are informed and active in the decision making process, and I feel this is a critical part of my job. While I am a surgeon, I am interested in pursuing all non-surgical means to the treatment of various spine conditions before considering surgical options. When surgery is decided upon, I apply the fundamentals of my training and evolving technology to maximize benefit to patients.

Get to know his background

My greatest area of interest is the treatment of adult spine deformity. This includes many problems that cause issues with posture, including scoliosis and kyphosis. I am also interested in treating patients who have had previous surgery and continue to have issues.
