I had surgery with Dr. Vigna and I'm slowly but surely feeling like myself again. He took the time to explain my condition to me and made sure I understood what was going on. The whole office is very accommodating. Would definitely recommend reVive to anyone suffering from back and neck pain.

I have had 2.5 years of pain with no where to go. I saw Dr. Vigna in 2009 for my first surgery, then I came back in October for my second and my pain is totally gone! I could not have done that without Dr. Vigna.

After years of fighting with the VA system, Dr.Vigna gave my husband his life back through spinal fusion. 2 days post-op and this is the first time in years he says there is no back pain. Dr.Vigna truly cares about his patients and their well being. We just can't thank you enough for giving us our future back.

Spinal decompression went horribly wrong. First 8 sessions went good and on session 9 the spinal decompression machine malfunctioned and started to squeeze my neck so hard that I was in a lot of pain. I kept pushing emergency stop botton but it didn’t stop. There is no one watching you so you are on your own. When the session was over and they stopped the mashine I couldn’t get up and started passing out and was extremely dizzy, disoriented and in a lot of pain.

Highly recommend Dr. Vigna and his staff. Love his conservative approach and not rushing to operate immediately. Yes, wait times can be a bit much but the way I look at it, is, when it comes time for your turn, he is going to spend the time he needs with you too. It's worth the wait. Both my husband and I have been to see him. Fortunately my issue was resolved with conservative treatment while my husband's required surgery. Very very happy and we travel over 2 hours to get to his office.

Dr. Vigna did my back surgery. What a great Doctor. He explained what was going on with my back in a way that no other doctor has over the past 20 years that I have been in pain. They all told me to live with it. Not Dr. Vigna he got busy and investigated where the pain was coming from and took care of it. He is a very pleasant , down to earth doctor to talk to and he makes sure you understand what is going on. Also his staff is very friendly. Most of the time I have not had to wait very long.

Dr. Vigna gave me my life back. After being hit by a drunk driver and suffering with a huge herniated disc in my lower back, I was referred to him. I could barley stand up straight, was in so much pain and had bad sciatica in both my legs and my feet would go dead. After surgery I remember saying "I can feel my feet again". I thank him for giving me my life back and fixing me. The new office is amazing, staff always friendly, and extremely helpful. Would recommend anyone to him.

After several visits in a 6 month timeframe I keep getting put off and told to come back for another appt. I was told I clearly need surgery on my back and neck but keep putting it off and referring me to other specialists for different things. With very little mobility and pain levels through the roof my frustration level is maxed out.
