Dr. Papavasiliou is an excellent surgeon and has a wonderful bedside manner. His PAC Keith is also great and very responsive to any concerns that I had/have pre- and post-surgery. I had my surgery 5 weeks ago and have felt so mush better, Previously I could not walk to the back of a grocery store without my Feet and calves being numb. Now, I am able to do so. I few days ago I had absolutely no pain in my back and legs, and now I still have some pain and weakness, but I am sure it will get better
He showed me my MRI and explained exactly what was wrong and suggested alternatives to treat it. The results of my choice of treatment has been successful.

I highly recommend Dr. Papavasiliou . After going to Chiropractic and PT, Dr. Papavasiliou knew exactly what my problem was after viewing my MRI. He made me feel at ease and confident that he could help me and HE DID. I am now pain free and able to do all the things I love doing. I feel I have my life back.
in West Harwich, MA |
I had a fracture in the bottom vertebrae of my spine and Dr. Papavsilliou performed surgery on me and corrected it. I am very leased with my results and would recommend him highly. He was most competent and knowledgeable and explained in fine detail everything that he planned to do in advance of the surgical procedure.
