While Dr Kris is a highly skilled and experienced surgeon, he is also an expert in less invasive technologies. For example, he specializes in orthopedic regenerative medicine, including stem cells and PRP for joint treatment, radio-frequency ablation (RFA) for the spine, as well as nerve blocks and epidurals. This is particularly beneficial for patients who are not medically fit to undergo surgery.
