What people have to say
I wish I could leave a gazillion “likes” for Dr. Ciccarelli. He diagnosed a pinched sciatic nerve on my left side originating from my lower back, resulting in unbearable pain that prevented me from standing for more than a few seconds at a time. I tried other treatments — chiropractic, spinal injections, medications — nothing worked. He scheduled a laminotomy. The procedure was over before I knew it. The sciatic nerve pain was GONE. His professionalism and bedside manner was beyond incredible.

I went to the Overland Park location to see Dr. Ciccarelli. Before seeing him, I was having severe pain down the left side of my leg going to my left big toe. Nobody could help me until I saw Dr. Ciccarelli. For the first time in 10 months, I am pain-free. I can’t think him enough for everything he has done for me. I also have to mention Heather and Jason. They were so nice and helpful.

My husband was referred to Dr. Ciccarelli for a herniated disc. He was in a lot of pain and discomfort and Jason & Dr Ciccarelli made sure to help and right away! They took very good care to get him into surgery asap and did an excellent job. They were very personable and explained everything prior to surgery and took great care of him. I was very impressed how they treated patients and families. Couldn’t say enough great things about Jason and Dr. Ciccarelli and his entire staff!!

Dr. Ciccarelli and his staff were great. I had a discectomy of my L4-L5 and L5-S1 to alleviate sciatica pain in my right leg. Every aspect of my experience was excellent from initial scheduling of consultation visit, scheduling surgery and completing surgery. Surgery was successful and recovery has been good. I have already recommended Dr. Ciccarelli to others and will continue to send referrals to his office. Really good experience.
