Dr. Lattuga operated on my 11 years ago when I had part of my C-5 disc went into my spine. I was in constant pain and he was the only doctor who found it. Because of the seriousness of the problem he scheduled me for surgery right away at the end of Januaryi. He warned me of all the potential problems but put my mind at ease. He told me that if I did everything he told me to after surgery I would I would be able to play golf again by May. May 2nd, i was able to tee off for the first time. The surgery gave me my life back and after 11 years I am still doing fine. PS. This surgery was done when I was just going on 59, and i am now 70 and still able to play golf several times a week without any problems. I have recommended Dr. Lattuga to friends in need over the years and all have been highly satisfied.
For the guy or gal who said he should loose his license because he didn't prescribe you drugs?!?!? Really? He explained to me, as I'm sure he would have explained to you if you hadn't walked into his exam room all hot headed from having to wait is that they are NARCOTICS. He doesn't believe in them because he doesn't want to be responsible for turning you into a drug Addict, which you may already be. He is a surgeon and if your not a drug addict, he probably just saved your life! Drugs just mask the problem and create addicts. What a selfish, self centered review! He saved my back and allowed me to have a life again.
Dr Lattuga gave me my life back!! I was losing use of my hand when I came to Dr. Lattuga as well as having chronic back pain. I was happy to see that he wasn't "surgery happy" and listened to my worries and we together moved forward with my care. Following an ACDF, I quickly felt a release in my hand and the heaviness I felt constantly.Its been about 8 months and my hand is getting stronger everyday. Dr Lattuga and his excellent staffs constant care, positivity, patience and skill has put my life back on track....I smile again...i'm living again...
