I had a lot of pain and numbness before my surgery. I am amazed how quickly the pain was gone. The surgery, hospital, staff were all excellent. Dr. gallo has mad my life wonderful again. I am a master gardener and help run a community garden. It was getting more and more difficult to garden with the pain. Now I am well and so very happy. Thank you Dr. Gallo!

Brilliant surgeon - broke neck C2-5 she is amazing I am mobile and living. Dr Gallo saved my life 10-24-1996.
She's is so confident that I was sure she'd do an excellent job and I'd receive the best care. I have been in the dark through the whole process, being told only minimal information sometimes just prior to needing to know it. I.e. EKG wasn't ordered until the day before my actual surgery so I had to return, just a day after being there for my blood work, for the EKG. I was not notified they would be taking a bone graft from my hip and it wasn't until awakening from surgery that I realized it
