Andree Kropf, RN

Clinical Nurse Educator

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Kropf in his spine practice for over 20 years. As his nurse educator, I’m often the first person to welcome the patient and their families. I enjoy guiding them through the process, educating them about their surgery and aftercare, and getting the patient back to the life they once knew.

Going to work every day holds something new and is another opportunity to ensure that Dr. Kropf’s patients feel comfortable going into surgery. There’s nothing more gratifying than to receive calls and emails from patients who are out of pain after their procedure.

He looks out for his patient’s well-being, treats them as if they were members of his own family. He listens carefully, answers questions completely, and has the greatest empathy for his patient’s position, feelings, and fears.

Thank you to all those who helped me during my recovery, especially Sakura, and Trisha! You are all Angels on Earth! God Bless you!"

“Dr. Kropf is a very knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. He is just as straight forward and honest as I remember him from 19 years ago. He did an amazing job with my back then, that I flew across the country to discuss the second surgery with him!”
"Dr. Kropf is literally a miracle worker. I have suffered with horrible pain for years from herniation at L4/5 & L5/S1. Had a prior micro-surgery from another surgeon which did not work. Dr. Kropf performed a double fusion through the stomach and back. Had my 7 month follow up yesterday and got a clean bill of health. Honestly, after about 5 months I was totally pain free. He completely nailed it!!! I also just referred one of my good friends who also feel in love with Dr.Kropf. I had interviewed 7 surgeons with my wife and we both agreed that there was no one better to do my surgery. This was not a fun thing to go through, but so worth it. Katie, Sakura, and Trisha also were awesome to deal with and super responsive."
