Jeff Kleiner, MD
President + CEO
After becoming frustrated with existing tools in his spinal surgery practice, Jeff Kleiner, MD founded Kleiner Device Labs in 2013, and began developing a suite of tools and techniques which allow the performance of open and minimally invasive spinal surgery to be safer, easier, and more efficient.
Dr. Kleiner graduated with honors from Stanford University, received an MD from the University of Colorado, completed a surgical internship at Rush University in Chicago, and was a resident and NIH postdoctoral fellow at the University of California at San Diego. Upon returning to Colorado in 1991, Dr. Kleiner specialized in adult and pediatric reconstructive spinal surgery at the Colorado Spine Center and University of Colorado. Over 25+ years of practice he performed more than 6,000 spinal surgeries, until retiring in 2016 to focus on Kleiner Device Labs.
