Raj Kakarlapudi, M.D.

Orthopedic Spine Surgeon

Profile Overview

At the age of 10, Dr. Raj Kakarlapudi knew he wanted to work in the medical field. He witnessed firsthand the positive impact his aunt and uncle, who were doctors, had on their patients. And that’s when he knew he wanted to help people in the very same way.

Dr. Kakarlapudi’s desire to build strong, understanding relationships, coupled with his kind and caring disposition with his patients, makes him a perfect fit for Laser Spine Institute. Here, he can integrate two of his favorite elements of medicine: patient care and minimally invasive spine surgery.

When not caring for patients, Dr. Kakarlapudi enjoys taking trips with his family, golfing and playing tennis. He, his wife and two sons are excited to welcome a baby girl to their family.
