      Dr. Sasso was professional, empathetic, and explained why surgery was immediately needed. Follow up by him was excellent also. I couldn't have asked for better care than what he gave. Hopefully the office and staff issues have improved since I visited there, but I have absolutely the greatest confidence in Dr. Sasso.

      Dr. Rick Sasso truest motive helping people in pain. His true gift is his ability to accomplish that!. At the age of 54, I began to curve significantly more and surgery became necessary. In spite of the invasive nature of scoliosis surgery(and mine was bad, I needed two 9 inch rods and 26 spinal screws) I was able to actually walk 7.2 miles per day after 3 weeks. We immediately shifted our focus to pill reduction. In less than two months I am pill free and walking 3 miles a day!
