Dr. Maulucci was WONDERFUL. He fused L3 to S1, and did a laminectomy, AND de-tethered my spinal cord in the same procedure. I'm still hurting (almost 10 weeks post-op) but it's a different kind of pain, and I can already tell the surgery did what we wanted it to do. After having dealt with the folks at Ochsner, among other places, I will never go anywhere else for ANYTHING neurosurgical.

I went to Dr. Maulucci for my severe scoliosis/deformed spine. He told me not to do anything because it could make my back even worse. He did not seem to care much about my pain. However, I respect his honesty. He was not in a hurry to operate like some other doctors were and I trust his opinion.. I will be going back each year just to make sure my curve isn't getting any worse. The staff is very friendly.

I had the worst experience with him. If you don’t need surgery, you are of no interest to him. He is nonchalant about constant pain. He was cold and flippant. Saw him for about 30 seconds. Condescending and no bedside manner. I would never ever recommend anyone to see him if they want someone empathetic and proactive about your pain

Dr Maulucci and staff has helped me so much with my years of back pain. He operated on me and continues to over see my care through recovery. I highly recommend this doctor and staff for anyone who is in need of back surgery.

Dr. Maulucci is exceptional. Months of alternative treatments couldn't relieve the pain I experienced from a spinal canal cyst at L4-5. My husband & I both immediately felt comfortable with Dr. M. He addressed all of our questions & concerns, providing detailed explanations. He is a highly skilled surgeon & the leg pain I had suffered was gone the morning after surgery; the cyst & disc were removed and I had a spinal fusion. Follow-up care was exceptional. I am pain free & enjoying life!

My husband was in so much pain. He was losing feeling in his hands and legs. The primary care doc referred us to Dr. Maulucci and he had the surgery the next morning.. hours after the surgery my husband had 80% of his motion back. He is still in the healing process but he is 90% better. Thanks to Dr. maulucci!!
