Dr. Zitnay did surgery on my neck. He did a great job! I can't say enough good things about him. My pain is totally gone. After surgery there was no need for pain medication. I am so glad that I chose a local doctor and didn't listen to all that said I should go to Pittsburgh. I can't say enough...more

Dr. Zitnay operated on both my neck and back. I had chronic pain for over 10 years and tried everything. After two surgeries I have a nearly pain free life. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Zitnay.
