Glad our friend recommended Dr. Clavenna. He was never rushed through the examination and made sure I understood my back condition as well as the course of treatment. Ended up having surgery and his skills are amazing haven't even had to take pain pills post op. His staff is caring, accomodating and responsive, couldn't be happier.

My initial visit was with his PA Clare Roberts who was excellent, asked questions and did a thorough hands-on assessment. I didn’t know if I was going to see Dr. Clavenna but he came in and introduced himself saying hello Donna, I’m Andrew. He sat down and acted as if he had all the time to talk about my X-Rays, the scoliosis and subsequent nerve pain I’m experiencing. Surgery was not an option at my age, however he discussed all options available and tends to go with a lesser approach and go from there. I was so relaxed and comfortable with Dr. C. He examined me , felt the area of nerve pain and said he was surprised I was never aware of the Scoliosis. After 12 weeks of PT, Dr. Clavenna is recommending I see a Pain Mgmt Dr. for steroid shots for pain relief. I really like his down to earth attitude and more cautious approach rather than most Surgeons who practice “Cut to Cure” approach. Highly recommend Dr. Clavenna.

Dr Clavenna performed a lumbar spine fusion on me December 2018. One year later I am pain free, have all of the strength in my leg restored and am back to 100%. His knowledge, skill and manor with patients is exceptional. Thank you, Dr Clavenna for allowing me to live pain free and participate in all of the activities that I love.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Clavenna for close to 2 years..He is one of the most caring and considerate physicians I’ve ever encountered..I suffered many years with an extended neck..after he did surgery on the area I can truly say that my neck is completely back to normal..anyone considering spinal surgery I highly recommended that you have him review your problems..you won’t be sorry and pleasantly surprised!!!

Had difficulty reaching office staff (they said they were having phone problems) once I got in touch with staff, they quickly fitted me in. Dr Clavenna was very easy to talk to and clearly explained the next course of action.

Though I am only three weeks post-op from a TLIF of L5/S1, I am doing well and have seen phenominal improvement of the pain I was experiencing prior to surgery. Dr. Clavenna & his staff have been very kind, informative, and thorough during the course of my treatment. Prior to surgery, less invasive procedures were tried, including injections, but my condition continued to deteriorate. When surgery became the best option, I went in feeling secure I was in the best of hands. From the office to the operating room, the entire team never rushed through any phase of my treatment-providing personal care and attention rarely found these days in the medical community. I would highly recommend Dr. Clavenna and his staff for anyone plagued with orthopaedic needs. This has been a life-changing experience for me and I feel I am well on my way to getting my life back, free of pain. Thank you Dr. Clavenna!

Dr. Clavenna is great. Honest approach to the care of my back. He takes to listen to your questions and gives honest answers. He’s very conservative. If it’s not time for surgery, he tells you that. Additionally, Dr. Clavenna suggested pain management and rehabilitation first. Eventually, if and when the time comes I will look to have Dr. Clavenna perform the surgery on my back.
