Dr Traina saved my husbands life in 2001. There are no words adequately express my heartfelt gratitude. Without Dr Traina I would have lost my soul mate, and my beloved children would never have been born. Thank you Dr Traina.

My experience with Dr. Traina was excellent. He was highly recommended by my primary care and neurologist. On the first visit he explained the problem with my spine and agreed with the neurologist that the only fix was surgery, which he was able to schedule within days. Surgery was successful, pain...more
