I would not recommend surgery with this Dr. This place is a factory, and you will only see the surgeon 3 times. Once for consult, once before surgery to make sure he has all the tests and paperwork then 3 months post surgery. Your in the hands of PA's. Go to someone who actually cares about your outcome. My main issue was undiagnosed, it was a Spine issue, however I continue in severe pain. And the doctor does not collaborate with other doctors to solve problems, he's onto the next patient.

Recently, I had a Surgical Consult with both Dr. Cammisa as well as his PA - Heather. Both were empirically driven, no non-sense, and highly disciplined in their examination of my records and person. Presently scheduled for next round of imaging diagnostics and will await 'Next Steps' in the process. As a "mature" patient, I immediately recognized that Dr. Camissa's office is a high demand medical facility and that, given the comparatively astronomical leap in incidences of Back & Neck issues within our population over the last few decades, garnering the professional attention of a powerfully skilled physician the likes of Dr. Cammisa should not be expected to be a 'Cake Walk.' Rather, becoming [his] patient should be understood and likened to a "Process" that is based on tried and proven principles of both the hard (Medicine) and soft (Behaviorial) sciences intermixed. What's more important to you, Character or Personality? Character is principle based. Personality is "popularism."

Dr. Cammisa operated on me twice. The first operation was for spinal stenosis and a year later he fuzed L2-3 and L3-4. I had degenerative disc decease. I am now completely mobile and can participate in Cardio three times a week. I don't use a pain killers. Dr. Cammisa gave me my life back.

Dr. Cammisa successfully performed a spinal fusion surgery on my cervical spine. Outstanding! Simply the BEST. The team is fantastic and his PA, Heather is also 5-stars!

I endured 2 years of back pain while exploring alts to surgery, but once I came to the realization that I needed surgery, Dr Cammisa's name continued to come up in recommendations. I was not disappointed! I required major surgery (laminectomy and fusion with instrumentation). Time with Dr Cammisa was limited, but I was 100% comfortable with that, as he's supported by a great team, and where I wanted and needed him, and where he was present, was during surgery. He restored quality to my life!

I had back surgery in 1999 for a microdiscectomy between L4 and L5. I had severe pain for many years. Zero pain after the surgery and no more opioids since 1999. I ski, I run and I go to the gym regularly. Dr. Cammisa is a very talented surgeon! I Highly recommend!

I can't get in touch with anyone to schedule my surgery, otherwise I'm ok , he made me feel very comfortable at the consultation, not arrogant was a gentleman. Just wish they knew what to do with the paperwork & a response would be nice.

Upon learning of my original diagnosis from another doctor: spinal stenosis, partially herniated disc and foot drop, in late May 2015, Dr. Cammisa cleared his calendar, examined me, put me through pre-op processing and operated on June 19th. I went home two days later (Fathers Day). Before I went in I could barely walk, let alone stand up. In 60 days I was back racing my sailboat and now, a year later, I'm still doing great!
