Patient Comments (33)

I haven't felt this good in 7 years. I had emergency lumbar surgery, at Sky Ridge, that Dr. Rauzzino performed. I am eternally grateful for him being there and taking care of me. I would recommend him to anyone needing an honest opinion with a no nonsense doctor.

I had broke my T7 back in 2006, was told by many doctors that nothing could be done. I broke my T6, T9 and T12, when he repaired my T6 he also repaired my T7. Great doctor and great chair side manner, always made me feel important and comfortable.

I had chronic debilitating pain from sciatica. Dr. Rauzzino saw me in a timely manner, identified the problem corrected it with a laminectomy. Throughout the process he and his staff were very helpful and worked to see that I got the treatment that I needed.

I had a L5 S1 Lumbar fusion done by Dr. Rauzzino six months ago. He is an amazing surgeon with a great bedside manner. He made sure he answered all my questions and that I was comfortable with his plan of action. I was in pain for almost 5 years from my back issues and I feel fantastic now! Not...more

He performed a C6-7 ADR for me. I woke up from surgery pain free for the first time in 7 months. I went home 6 hours after surgery and walked nearly 2 miles the next day. Great Dr and friendly staff.
