    Seems like a nice enough guy, but was texting or looking at his phone almost the entire time we were in the office. I don't know that he ever even made eye contact with us during our initial visit.

    i had anterior and posterior fusion done on my L4 L5 and S1 disc. surgery went very well and i am now feeling 95% better. I would recommend Dr Valente to anyone
    in Ft Worth, TX |
    I went to see him after 22 years of back pain. He had to do a full fusion but, wasn't sure how well it would work since I was about 10 years too late for 100% recovery. HE said my nerve was mangled and we would just have to see. I am 4 months out of surgery and I feel great. I still get a little pain every once in a while but he did an amazing job and I would say 95% recovered. He is a WONDERFUL doctor and person, I would recommend him to EVERYONE!

    Dr Valente performed major back surgery(5-1/2 hours) on Dec. 7,2015 to correct my back problems. I am very pleased with the results this early after surgery. Dr Valente is very knowledable and skilled, I would recommended him to anyone needing back surgery. Dave Samstag

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Valente's Care Philosophy

    Dr. Valente believes in the human body's ability to heal itself. He utilizes a variety of treatment modalities such as anti-inflammatory medications, analgesics, physical therapy, aquatic therapy, massage, ultrasound, injection therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care when appropriate. Only when a patient has been unable to alleviate symptoms with non-surgical treatments is surgery considered as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
