Dr. Caputo found and fixed the source of 55 years of pain. I have lost count of how many others had tried and failed; he has changed my life and, more importantly, my enjoyment of life with my wife Deborah! Ray Herrmann

Dr Adam Caputo is an excellent doctor. Besides being a great surgeon, he has a wonderful “bedside manner.” He explains in detail procedures, etc. He is very kind and makes you feel good about your situation. I would recommend him to anyone.

This dr is a lifesaver. After a botched back operation he took me on as a patient and fixed me. After seeing 3 different doctors he was the only one to correctly diagnose my issues. A phenomenal Christian doctor. Highly, highly recommend!

I was a little apprehensive going into this procedure but after meeting with Dr. Caputo he explained what the surgery was going to entail and my fears faded away. The surgery was successful just as he explained. I am so thankful that my Heavenly Father along with my family doctor directed me to this group.

My journey with Dr. Caputo and his practice started on 7/26/2019 with my first consult for his professional opinion on a very damaged spine after I fell 22 years ago at age 46, I am now 68. I fell outside my home in the yard when my foot slipped and really hit the ground hard on my bottom. I knew I was injured pretty bad. own, many doctors told me they could not operate and assure me I would not be paralyzed. So with that being the situation, I obtained all the information I could about my injuries, went to Physical Therapy, they worked out a routine of exercise for me and living with my condition began. My Spiritual Strength and beliefs were my strongest Hope. Then I met Dr. Adam Caputo at Spine Surgery Associates, I know he was Spiritually sent to me and my prayers had been answered the day he said he could repair my back and I had not doubt that he could repair it and I told him so. So we scheduled surgery. The knowledge and affirmation that I could be better was noted & I am

The staff was very professional, and saw me in a timely manner. My appointment was with Derrick who answered any question I might have. Dr Caputo also came in to see me that day even though I had already seen Derrick. Both of them covered my issues with care and concern.

Outstanding Dr. who is not only proficient but very friendly. I have been seen by quite a few doctors during my 30+ years in the U.S. military. Dr. Adam Caputo is the best. He listens and he asks questions. I was up and around after the procedure and have not had a bad day yet. Thank you Dr. Caputo.

It is often the case that doctors don't listen well to elderly women. That was definitely not the case here. I was listened to, encouraged to ask questions, and given every opportunity to make my own treatment decisions. I was also pleased that the least invasive options were presented first with no push for surgical intervention.

I visited Dr. Caputo in October of 19' referred from my chiropractor . The first visit was very informal, Dr. Caputo was very knowledgeable about my options and the best choices for me. I decided to do a Microdiscectomy, we did my procedure at Parkridge. Everyone was so nice and very helpful. Dr. Caputo went and spoke with my family while I was in recovery.. the surgery was very successful. And I wont have a scar thankful and my pain is gone! I will recommend Dr. Caputo every chance I get! He and his staff are very friendly and he is an amazing doctor!

My PCP wanted to refer me to a spine surgeon. I chose Dr. Caputo because of the reputation of the practice (from a medical standpoint and reputation for integrity), his educational background, his medical philosophy (conservative treatment) and his medical interests. He and his PA talked with me, did additional imaging, listened to me carefully, talked with me some more, gave the list of treatment options, reassured me, and allowed me to make the choice for treatment. Good people.
