On 9/23/2017, our son returned to play D1 college football after having minimally invasive microdiscectomy surgery on 6/10/2017. To our family this is the best testament to the professionalism, trustworthiness and quality of care he received from Dr. Gatto. We are so grateful and highly recommend Dr. Gatto and his staff at The Advanced Spine Center.

“Had a severely degenerated L5S1 that was pretty much bone on bone and causing chronic pain. I had been monitoring it for some time with Dr Gatto and was under no pressure to have it surgically remediated, although I knew it was inevitable. Finally in August of 2016 I decided to have a fusion of the L5S1 level to stabilize the spine and decrease pain. I made sure to have enough recovery time post surgery and followed Dr Gatto's post surgical instructions to the letter. The first week was tough,

He is excellent, caring and produces outstanding results!

Dr. Gatto performed back surgery on me a little over 10 years ago and he will also perform another surgery in June. He is a consummate professional. He is patient and answered all of my questions. I never feel like he is not paying attention or in a rush. Surgery was never the first recommendation, instead he carefully and thoroughly went through various medical test results and provided all of the options for my consideration.

As an RN for over 20 years, I unfortunately was hurt on the job. Workers Compensation gave me no choice but to go to Dr. Gatto. That was over 2 Years ago and I have been unable to work since the surgery. I had just worked hard to get my B.S. N. for 2 1/2 years prior to the surgery. He took that all away from me by doing what most people would recognize as a Botch Job. I now walk with a limp, as before surgery I was working and running up/down stairs to Code Blues. My career and life is ruined!
