I feel very fortunate to have been treated by Dr. Tucci. I am 72 years old and have been practicing Judo for over 40 years. Having suffered an unrelated back injury that left me with a numb foot and severe weakness in my leg, I was told by a number of people that I would require back surgery. Convinced I would need surgery, I conducted extensive research for a capable neurosurgeon. On the recommendation of the ER physician, I sought out Dr. Tucci. After his examination, Dr. Tucci explained the advantages and the pitfalls of the type of surgery I would require. When I asked him what he would do if he were in my shoes, he stated very emphatically that he would NOT do the surgery as a first option. He strongly recommended that I undergo physical therapy, first. I took his recommendation and completed the PT and, at the same time vigorously performed the exercises several times a day at home. I have recovered from my injury and expect to continue living my joy of Judo.

This dr is a quack I was told that there was nothing he could do for me and to just lose weight and take ibuprofen. Well a second opinion says I have spondylolisthesis of the lumbar from a congential defect. While I do need to lose some weight to ease surgery I do in fact need surgery and have been referred to a pain specialist. Thankful I didn’t listen to this dr!

Honest, efficient, and wonderful experience with Dr. Tucci. Successful surgery for my mom. He removed a tumor from her brain and within 48 hours she was on the way home. He's amazing.
