Christopher Kepler, M.D., MBA
Dr. Kepler is an ABOS Board Certified Spine Surgeon. He completed a two year fellowship in spine surgery and spine research at Rothman Institute and Thomas Jefferson University. Prior to fellowship, Dr. Kepler completed his residency at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

He received his M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 2005 and also attended business school at Columbia, receiving an MBA.

He has published more than a hundred peer-reviewed articles and presents regularly at national and international spine meetings. He has multiple ongoing research interests including a strong interest in basic research where he studies the molecular biology of disc degeneration and strategies to prevent postoperative infection, research which is funded by the NIH.  Dr. Kepler has a faculty appointment at Thomas Jefferson University where he directs a basic science lab and is heavily involved in clinical research.
