Dr. Oner A. Khera, MD

Oner A. Khera, MD, practices orthopedic spine surgery and spine health at WK Spine Clinic in Shreveport. Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dr. Khera’s focus is the conservative and surgical management of spine disorders. Among them are Level I trauma involving fractures of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spines; spinal stenosis; spinal tumors; spinal infections; scoliosis and other spinal deformities.
