Patient Comments (2)
in Carson City, NV |
Dr Vacca performed a back operation and I was pleased.... He is the best in the west.... in all ways he is the best.... I would never see another doctor again..
in Dayton, NV |
I had C3-C7 replacement. With bone spurs pressing into spinal column. Dr Vacca explained clearly what was wrong, what needed to be done and how it would fix my neck pain. At surgery he had a Nerve specialist there and my surgery was done as planned. It takes awhile to heal, but Dr Vacca was wonderful at post-op appts and I am so thankful for his abilities. A friend took me to Dr Vacca for a second opinion. If I had done what original surgeon suggested, I would have been in a world of hurt.
