Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mauro "Having won the Best Bedside Manner Award 2016 at Our Health Roanoke and New River Valley, the Compassionate Doctor Award, and the Patient's Choice Award 2012, Dr. Mauro feels that it is very important for patients to be actively involved in their care. He makes sure patients understand the importance of the evaluation and diagnostic processes needed to identify the source of their pain. He then takes the extra time to double-check that his patients understand the potential benefits, alternatives, and possible risks of all treatment options."

If he doesn't feel you should do surgery he will explain all of your options first. No need in going through it if therapy or other alternatives will work. Not only has Dr. Mauro performed 2 surgeries for me but also 2 on my dad that were way worse and knowing that I woke up from surgery with no...more

I have had many surgeries but never a surgeon so thorough, kind, and understanding. He did a great job of explaining things to me in a way that I could better understand. He was a blessing to me and my family.
