Had severely herniated disc and was able to quickly get appointment to see Dr Cairone. MRI confirmed surgery required to alleviate pain which at times was on 8 to 9 scale. Had surgery within week to remove thumbnail sized herniation. Was up walking later that day and recovery has been remarkable. Three weeks later I’m back to normal activities. Dr Cairone can be direct at times. Personally I’m fine with this and valued our discussions. More importantly he’s an exceptional surgeon. I’m an active 67 year old and Dr Cairone has me enjoying life again for which I’m most appreciative.

I had back and leg pain for a little over a year. After one visit with Dr. Cairone he explained in length what exactly was going on and answered all of my questions. Shortly after the visit I had surgery and wow. I feel better than I did 10 years ago. He visited with me before and after the surgery and again took the time explained everything. I'm forever grateful for everything he's done. I would recommend Dr. Cairone and his staff to anyone who has back pain and wants relief.

I was unable to walk without severe pain from a herniated disc from years ago that became chronic a few months ago. I was going to work 1 day per week and coming back to writhe in pain on my bed. Dr. Cairone and his team got the MRI and the surgery approved in a short time, and I had surgery at their surgery center in Lawrenceville. I had immediate relief after I woke up from surgery and 2 weeks post-op I will start PT, and return to work (teach HS) next week. Thank you Dr. Cairone and staff!

Prior to having surgery I came to this website to read the reviews of Dr. Cairone to confirm that I made the right decision. Some of the reviews said that his bedside manner was not the best, however I found that not to be true if anything he exudes confidence. My surgery went better than expected I would highly recommend him to anybody that’s considering back surgery.

How was your experience with Dr. Cairone?

About Me

I believe in doing surgery only when needed and only after all conservative measures have been exhausted. I pride myself on being up to date surgically with the most current minimally invasive technology for spine surgery. The fields of disc replacement and minimally invasive lumbar surgery are making recovery much faster and less painful, with excellent results.
