“I was referred to Dr. Kurtom by my family doctor. The pain I was having in my right lower back at that time was unbearable. When I woke up after surgery I had no pain. After five other back surgeries I was a little leary of this surgery. But I can truly say I do not have any pain and this is the first time in 30 years I have not had back pain! Thank you.”

Patient Name:Dr. John Arroyo
After suffering for well over a year with debilitating lower back and leg pain and getting little help from local physicians, I was referred to Dr. Kurtom. Best hour and a half drive I ever made. I had TLIF surgery soon thereafter and was up and walking the next day virtually pain free. A week or so later I was back at work. I am 62 years old and am back playing golf and tennis like the old days. I am so thankful for Dr Kurtom and his whole team.
Patient Name:Peggy Lee Anderson
Both my husband and I can’t find words to say how wonderful Rochalla Higdon was. She was there for us every step of the way, answering all of our questions and reassuring us all would be fine. Dr Kurtom was great as well, as all of his staff in the office.

At first consultation regarding my low back pain, Dr. Kurtom was appropriately conservative regarding surgery. When I decided to go ahead with the surgery because of increasingly debilitating pain, all went smoothly. With minimally invasive surgery, my recovery was only a week or two and I was soon back to normal activities and virtually pain free. Dr Kurtom understood my particular profile and did not have a “carved” response. He is an extremely skilled surgeon and I am very happy with the results, now two months later.

Patient Name: Antoinette Micheliche
It was a little stressful in the beginning, my neck surgery was scheduled, then right before surgery my primary doctor found something wrong with my carotid arteries. I thought I needed another surgery before this original one, it was a mess, but Dr Kurtom and his staff were fabulous, they reassured me everything was fine and comforted me and just made me feel special, cleared up all the misunderstanding and surgery was as scheduled. Thank you so much.

I have lumbar stenosis and Dr Kurtom performed surgery on three levels of my spine. After one night in the hospital I was up walking and able to do the stairs. It’s been 12 days and I am amazed at how good I feel. Thank you.

"Pictured left to right are Jim Carter of Easton, local neurosurgeon Khalid Kurtom, MD, of Chesapeake Neurological Surgery in Easton; and Lois Krum of Easton. Carter and Krum recently had spinal surgeries which have improved their quality of life and mobility."
Jim Carter, a retired corporate attorney, and Lois Krum, a retired respiratory therapist, of Easton met through an online dating service and married later in life. The Easton couple planned an active retirement focused on volunteerism in their community. Instead, they found themselves suffering from severe spinal issues that were affecting the quality of life they had worked so hard to attain.
Patient Name: Debra Mende
Surgery: Tumor Surgery
"Dr. Kurtom was very confident in how he approached my surgery, which gave me confidence in fighting this disease."
When Debra Mende, age 59, started experiencing short episodes when she could not speak, she knew something was wrong. Dr. Kurtom performed an awake craniotomy to examine a lesion on the left side of her brain around her speech area. Information obtained during the procedure enabled Mende's physicians to determine the best treatment options for her brain tumor. READ MORE...

"Dr. Kurtom's straightforward manner and can-do attitude helped me decide to do the surgery. He conveyed to me that he knew he could be successful. It was important to me not to leave the community I love and the hospital I knew and had confidence in, to have this surgery. I consider myself blessed to have such a phenomenal doctor."
