Patient Comments (2)

It was as though other docs were looking at different parts of an elephant and making different diagnoses. By looking at past & current x-rays and ordering 2 MRIs, he put the whole picture together, and a diagnosis which considered everything. He is a GREAT diagnostician, a kind man...more

I could barely walk when I went to Dr. Arena. I had severe spinal stenosis and bulging discs. The surgery took 14 hours. Best decision I have ever made. My book has been good now for 15 years.
