RWJ University Hospital Somerset

Somerville, NJ

After dealing with two decades of pain from a serious car accident (hit by a drunk driver while I was a pedestrian) Dr. Chimenti performed two fusions, one cervical and one lumbar within a year of each other. The second fusion was a little more complex as it involve multiple vertebrae and a laminectomy.

Everything went as expected and I wouldn't hesitate to call him brilliant. His office staff is fantastic and he has a great personality that sets your mind at ease. Make no mistake, the recovery from two surgeries 9 months apart was brutal, but a month and a half after my second surgery I truly feel like I have my life back. If you have spine issues this is the guy to see!!!!!
