Dr. Spatola is amazing. I've had 2 back surgeries within a year (lumbar and cervical). He provided all the necessary information prior to surgery; follow-up was great. I would recommend him for any/all back surgery.

Dr. Spatola gave my wife her life back by removing a golf ball size tumor from her brain. Although the tumor was no malignant it was wrapped around the optic nerve of her...Read More
