My surgery for reflux disease by Dr. Rovito was a disaster. Shortly after, my stomach stopped contracting, which required hospitalization for decompression. For 5 months, I was unable to eat, had severe gastroparesis, lost 20 pounds, and half my hair fell out. I got no answers from Rovito. A specialist from Pittsburgh took an x-ray and saw the procedure was done incorrectly. Redo surgery took 10 hours and a lengthy ICU stay. They found my vagus nerve had been severed. Not recommended.

Dr. Rovito did my bariatric sleeve surgery on March 5, 2015. When I was told he was very personable and caring, I was shocked and surprised to find that he was all that and more. Not only an excellent surgeon, he is a REAL and compassionate individual. He actually LISTENS to you. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for either weight loss surgery or a general surgical procedure. He is the best. 5 Stars for me...
