Great dr. Very pleasant to deal with. He found problem with nerves and vertibrae in my neck, did the surgery and replaced vertabrea.. I came out of it very coherent and in no pain. Healed very well and would recommend him to anyone who needs a neurosurgeon.

My Husband was having severe Sciatic pain and had been to 2 chiropractors in 6 months and tried everything to make it better upon getting an MRI we discovered he had 2 hurrnaited discs and needed surgery. Dr Ferraro was an excellent choice and came highly recommended and we were not disappointed in his skills or professionalism , we would refer him to anyone who is having back pain.

I was extremely pleased with my surgery and experience.

I consulted with Dr. Ferraro to review my back condition and prior medical records. His approach was one of a no nonsense approach and subsequently directed me on the surgical procedure he would perform to alleviate my issues. I am now pain free and able to pursue all of my prior outdoor passions. Many thanks go out to his staff and nurses at the Spine Center. They were excellent and I would highly recommend them.

Successful results with my laminectomy and L4 &L5 surgery Sept. 15th. Explained everything very well. Did not rush at appointments and made me feel very comfortable. Answered all my questions. He was present at every appointment and followed up with checking on my recovery with x-rays at each appt. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I am so glad to have DR. Ferraro in Johnstown. I was very afraid of back surgery. He explained everything to me , was very professional, has a great bedside manner, and is a very good surgeon. I am now able to function again since having my surgery.

My husband and I both recently had microdiscetomy performed by Dr. Ferraro. He is superb. He has an excellent bedside manner. He was easy to talk to. He was very understanding of the pain that we were both experiencing and he did whatever he could to help with that. We were able to get an appointment with him in just a few days after MRI was performed and then only a couple days after that he was able to perform the surgery. He is wonderful. What an excellent benefit to city of Johnstown!
