    This guy will do surgery on you if you have a pulse and probably even if you don't just to make a quick buck. He pushed a surgery on me that he should of never done released me from his surgery center with a staph infection. tore the lining of my spinal cord also performed a fusion without my knowledge. The Dr that has done my revision surgery said he's amazed he didn't kill me with all he was doing

    Dr. Pettine's Care Philosophy

    As a board certified orthopedic spine surgeon, I believe in conservative spinal care that utilizes many forms of therapy before resorting to surgery. I am also an advocate of motion preservation and am known worldwide for leading the medical community in advancing the latest procedures for optimum spinal health. Currently I also offer stem cell therapy for joint, neck and low back arthritis and other medical conditions and have extensive research to support my treatments.
