Dr. Tormenti took care of me as recommended by my WC Lawyer Greg Boles. Dr. Tormenti did a wonderful job discussing and working over everything with my case of my back injury to fix what was neglected on my back by previous doctors. He's extremely intelligent, and compassionate for his patients. He did a Decompression on my L5 disc and relieved the pressure that was causing severe pain and losing feeling in my right leg. After the surgery I could basically immediately feel my right leg again. I literately can't thank him enough for everything he has done and will make sure to always recommend him and his team to anyone who needs a hero. The one thing is to definitely trust his word. I almost doubted things after the surgery but things really do just need time to get better at Physical Therapy as well. He kept me educated and motivated to keep going along with my other doctors he worked with as well to make sure everything was ok. Thank you so much Dr. Tormenti.

Unfortunately my back surgery was a failed one. Herniated L4, L5 occurred in 2018. I’ve tried nerve stimulator have seen several doctors and have not been the same. My life has changed dramatically with severe pain daily and forced to take pain medication. I am not the same person and miss doing daily activities and unable to work. I am only 60 years old and can’t imagine going the rest of my life like this. I went from extremely physical to sleeping and laying down often due to the stabbing pain in my back and legs. I was told there was a lot of blood and the surgery took longer than planned. A recent MRI has shown I am the same as it was a few years ago but with more compression on my root nerve making everything I do very painful. I researched the dr we chose and hoped for better results. No therapy, injections or stimulator has helped.

After years of suffering with low back pain I came to Princeton Brain and Spine and met with Dr. Tormenti. He performed fusion surgery. After 6 week my back feels so much better than it has in decades. Dr. Tormenti is an excellent surgeon and an all around great guy. Thank you Dr. Tormenti

I had a pleasant experience with Dr. Tormenti. The staff, Doctor and hospital were all very kind and professional . If you are a surgical candidate Dr. Tormenti is highly recommended. He was very honest and truthful about the process and if needed I would go through the process with Dr. Tormenti again.
