My surgery was 7 years ago. My sister is now looking for someone to help her. As far as my experience, RESULTS are the only thing I care about. Do I remember long waits...? nope, I'm sure there were some. Do I remember staff being helpful or rude? Nothing memorable stands out. What I DO remember is: Waking up from surgery and the tingling and pain was GONE. Recovery, not fun but that as short lived. Am I better off now than I was? 100% Are there better surgeons? maybe Are there worse surgeons? I'm SURE Glad Dr. Lattuga was able to help me put my pain in the rear view mirror. Hoping my sister has an outcome as good as mine.

Please if you love yourself or family member, do not let Dr. Lattuga anywhere near them. Messed up my surgery when I was 11 years young and ruined my teenage and early adult hood life! I’m grateful my current spine surgeon saved me. I would’ve sued him if I found out within the statute of limitations. Please, stay safe!

Mi cirujia fue en el cuello y me siento mejor que antes gracias a dios. Es muy Rico poder ir a una oficina donde hay personas que lo entienden a uno, hablan el idioma y son super amables. Las niñas de cirujia todas son un Amor. Me siento feliz con mi cirujia.

Saw Dr Lattuga for a consult for both my neck and back pain and his staff was extremely courteous and helpful at the time of my visit. Dr L also took the time to listen, review my films with me and recommend a course of action. when I move forward w/my decision he will be a top candidate in my selection based on his track record in the field (his help with Ray Lucas [ex NY Jet QB] was very impressive). As for the person complaining that his office is like a DMV? - I was seen in under 15min.

For over two years I suffered with terrible back problems , I decided to see a spine surgeon, for an evaluation which clearly is something most people dont want to consider. Dr Lattuga was the best choice I could have made. I had a lumbar fusion 3 months ago and to my surprise i already feel better considering it take time to recover. He knows his stuff, very details and a total expert. I have an appreciation for what he did for me and how incredible efficient his office was with making thing
