Dr. Alexander R. Vaccaro's Ratings
From the moment I met Dr. Vaccaro and his assistant Mila Furman, I knew I was in GREAT hands at the Rothman Institute (I found out I not only had a herniated disc, I also had arthritis in my cervical spine that was compromising my legs). I had to have the BEST specialist in this field and Dr. Vaccaro was and is that doctor. Dr. Vaccaro went into great detail, walking me through my MRI films and discussing having cervical spine fusion surgery. I know I made the right decision not only with just picking the Rothman Institute, but to be blessed enough to have Dr. Alexander Vaccaro as "my" surgeon who performed it. Thank You Dr. Vaccaro and Mila Furman for being "You!"
Dr, Vaccaro displayed genuine concern for me as a patient and a human being. I WAS AMAZED at the amount of spinal curvature that he was able to correct. I will always be grateful for his compassion and expertise. In my eyes, he's a miracle worker!
Back pain is debilitating , so you go to the best to decide on a course of treatment. My surgery was done April 2013 and I've never looked back. Yes. I was scared...so scared that I didn't read the report Dr. Vaccaro sent to me describing his surgical plan. Guess I had my head in the sand, but I just couldn't read the words. Of course, he explained all of this on my visit to him in Oct. 2012. Yes. it took me over four months to make the decision. Once made, moving forward was paramount to me. My overall experience was positive. Pain, of course, but what's pain without gain. I went to PT a month later and have never looked back.
Thank you Dr. Vaccaro for giving me back my life. You are in my prayers daily.
One of the best Doctors in the U.S.! I was fortunate to have Dr. Vaccaro perform my surgery in May 2014 and I am now pain free, after months of excruciating, disabling pain! The best there is for any kind of back pain!
Had emergency surgery for cauda equinas syndrome and third discectomy. Dr. Vaccaro did not need to perform fusion due to expertise level, even though it was recommended prior to emergent situation by several surgeons. Excellent care provided by doctor and nursing staff at Jefferson. Follow-up appointment was on-time and he was personable.
Over night surgery ended in 5days in ICU.From IUC released to street with no rehab. Information will be posted on rothmanmistakes.net
