Office staff was not interested in hearing the extent of my problems (Cervical and Lumbar). They were focused on only being able to look at one area and one area only. Once it was determined that I was not a candidate for the disc replacement study there was little interest in my case to the point of making me feel like I was foolish for even coming in for a visit.

I am so grateful to be the patient of this doctor! I have achondroplasia dwarfism, and am 27 years old. It is not uncommon for young people with achondroplasia to require spine surgery because of our narrow spinal columns. Dr. Sasso has taken care of me for over 2 years and I couldn't be happier to have him. He is such a skilled surgeon and has performed 6 successful procedures on me. As well, I appreciate his kindness, genuine desire to see me feel well, and attentiveness to my many questions.

Dr Sasso is simply the best in his profession. One of the best if not the best in the world I would recommend Dr Sasso to anyone who has a spine, cervical need.
in Columbus, IN |
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!
