Ratings for Dr. Federico C. Vinas
My name is Marcus I was in a Life changing car accident a few years ago (less than 5 years) and I had to undergo a craniotomy operation due to blood clotting in my brain. It is now 2015 and at the age of 20 feel better than ever. Not sure how to contact me vinas but I can honestly say if it would not have been for you and your team I would not be alive right now. Thank you
I saw Dr. Vinas several times over a period of 10 years for degenerative disc disease. He took a cautious approach, and helped refer me to other specialists to treat my pain until things got bad enough that surgery was required. When I finally needed a double cervical fusion he did a great job and I recovered very well. In addition to being a widely researcher in his field and great surgeon, he has a warm, patient demeanor. His staff is also top notch.
Dr.Vinas was on call at the Halifax Hospital ER when I came in. With excruciating thigh pain from a disc pinching my right L3 nerve root.He gave me many options other than surgery.I had dealt with the problem to the point of desperation so I begged him to fix my L3/L4 disc. I had already had a Laminectomy and spinal fusion from L4 to S1. I have never been treated SO kindly or more competently than by Dr.Vinas. My surgery was a 100% success with total pain relief. I had no complications or post op problems. He is the BEST! Also I will add that the staff at HOME were awesome.
Looked at my MRI and said I had arthritis which I already knew. Dismissed most of what I said and asked me to walk 3 feet in 2 directions and said I didn't have a limp. " shorter than the other and I do have a discernible limp. I spent more time with his assistant being examined and questioned than with him. Not helpful at all. Told me to try PT for a few weeks to see if I felt better.
My name really is Charlie Brown and I met Dr. Vinas and his staff a couple of yrs ago after I had a motorcycle accident. 5/6-6/7 & T1 were causing a lot if discomfort and the X-rays and other tests showed why and Dr Vinas and his staff did not push me but I pretty much knew the surgery was the only way it would get any better....Dr Vinas told me that I could wait but I didn't want to... Like a lot of the blogs I have read, He and the people with him are THE BEST !!!! I'm 63yrs young, workout 5days a week, ride my bike over 100 miles a week, bicycle that is and I'm loving life by the grace of God, I survived another tradegy...I'm a Vietnam Vet and proud of it and I'm proud for Dr Vinas and his staff.....Down to earth people that truly care about you.... Thanks again Dr Vinas and hello staff, you all were great....CB
