      Dr Vacca did surgery on my C2-C6. He was amazing. Explained everything. He came highly recommended from a friend who knew several others, as well, who had successful surgery. I especially appreciated he had a dr checking on the nerves while he did surgery. He gave very thorough check-ups. I recommended a friend to him who had back pain and Dr told him surgery wouldn't help his situation. So you can trust that he tells you the truth.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
