Dr. Vitale and his team are amazing! My 13 year old daughter just had spinal fusion surgery (T-4- L-3) on January 8, 2020 to correct her scoliosis and her pain. She is feeling great and has no pain. Her posture is terrific! I would recommend him to anyone!!

Dr. Vitale performed spinal surgery to correct my 15 year old son's scoliosis in July, 2019. The surgery was a success and my son is already playing basketball! It's incredible. Dr. Vitale is an outstanding and talented surgeon, who is caring, patient and thorough. His excellent bedside manner relieves all the stress and anxiety for both his pediatric patients and their parents. I highly recommend him and outstanding staff. They don't leave any stone unturned. Dr. Vitale is a first class surgeon and man. As a patient researching many doctors for such a delicate surgery, you have many choices, but stop your search with Dr. Vitale. You will not regret your decision

I found Dr. Vitale to be amazing! My daughters Spinal Fusion surgery went wonderfully and her curvature has been corrected to almost perfect. He is knowledgeable and experienced and we have recommended him to at least two other patients.

Dr. Vitale is an amazing human being and an incredibly talented surgeon. He really cares about his patients, their feelings and apprehensions. My daughter, Zara, is one of his patients. She was very against the surgery that she desperately needed for scoliosis. After meeting with Dr. Vitale she felt at ease and said to me on the way out of his office, "Dad, is it weird that I am looking forward to having this surgery?" The surgery was a great success and she has no limitations at all. Amazing!

We have been patients of Dr. Vitale for the past 8 yrs. Our experience in the office, whether it be to schedule appointments, checking in w Isabelle, meeting w Anne for our initial office check and notes, conferring with Amber about our current situation and for follow-ups, scheduling surgeries with Aida or consulting with Dr. Vitale, has been nothing but stellar. Dr. Vitale is an expert in his field yet remains conservative with treatment. He spends as much time as needed with us each visit.
