Camden Whitaker M.D.
Back, Neck, Spine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Whitaker.
“I have seen over ten surgeons, and Dr. Whitaker is the only one I have and would refer to a friend. He and I will never be fishing buddies, but as far as surgeons go, he is as good as they get. Surgeons are not God, and although they may be able to fix some people, they cannot set us all. Far as what he did, it's as good as it is going to get. I need to see him again, but I'm waiting till I have to be carried in and or hardware or a bone sticks out of the skin. I wished I had found him before the other four surgeons made my condition worse than it ever was. Bottom line pain is my middle name!”
– Elliott R.
“I am pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Working with the staff has also been great. They were helpful and answered all my questions.”
– Janet B.
“It was a very professional visit. Thank you for listening and caring.”
– Glenn A.
– Barbara M.
“It has been a while since my back surgery, and I am 100% pain-free. The recovery seemed long and hard (especially wearing the "stylish" back brace) but understand that it was essential for my recovery. My therapy afterward went so smoothly that I was released a week ahead of time. My procedure went great and as planned; however, I do realize how important it is not to be overweight and a non-smoker. When others are contemplating back surgery and are afraid because of horror stories, I can tell them how grateful I am that I went through with it and how full my life is now to do anything physical that I want to do. Golf, exercising, walking an hour a day. Oh, and by the way, I am 72 years old. Thank you!”

“I had been having problems with my back for over 18 yrs. In just one visit and a look of my MRI, Dr. Whitaker knew what to do and presented to the option to me. I immediately accepted his offer. I had my surgery and was doing as expected. I had a minor complication that was very rare, and he went in quickly and fixed the problem. He is a very patient Dr., and I could not ask for a better Dr.”

“Dr. Whitaker is very respectful to his patients. He sees you on each office visit. I really feel comfortable with the major surgery he did on my back. Melissa Bailey is so easy to talk too. She listens to what you have to say and makes notes of all your questions and concerns, and gets the answers before you leave. Valerie is an AWESOME member of Dr. Whitaker's team. She follows through with the patient and makes you feel comfortable. Not sure what her hours are, but she was on the phone with me after 5:30 pm resolving a medication issue. Ida, at the front desk, is caring and makes you feel most welcome! She always has a smile on her face and willing to help with any concerns. Every office needs a front desk person like Ida! I will recommend Kansas Joint and Spine Specialists!”
– Beverly M.
“Informative and plesant.”
– Erma G.
“I was treated very well by my provider. Before surgery, I was given information that was clear and understandable. Other non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, injections, and pain control were required and tried before going straight to surgery. When those treatments were not found to be effective, then surgery was decided upon during a discussion between myself and my provided. Service was exceptional during pre-surgery, surgery, and post surgery.”
– Rozanne H.
“I was to see Dr. Camden Whitaker and his staff was very polite, helpful and I got in a little before my appointment. My wife and I was taken to a room to meet with Dr. Whitaker and we didn't even have to wait for him. Dr. Whitaker was polite, honest, and really knew what he's talking about. All I can say is that Dr. Whitaker and his staff are awesome, I am presently awaiting back surgery and with Dr. Whitaker and his staff I am very confident that all will go well.”
– Robert F.
“Both Dr. Whitaker and his PA have been easy to work with. They are very attentive to me and any questions I may have. I had a very successful surgery so far and hope to continue to heal well. The ladies at the front desk have always been pleasant and helpful. I hope that I don’t have to have another surgery myself but when I hear of other people suffering with pain similar to mine I have recommended they see your practice”
– Kevin S.

“With 2 damaged spine sections complicated by arthritis, I am fortunate disabling events are infrequent. However, when they malfunction, they are crippling. Dr. Whitaker has identified the extent of the damage and arthritis factors compounding problems. He has managed pain and relieved pressures in critical locations permitting me to be mobile again. I've been dealing with this for 30 years, and I am confident Dr. Whitaker will again work wonders.”
