Dr. Vanni explained the surgery, the pros and cons and did not sugar coat anything. He has great bedside manner and his staff was not only professional but friendly and comforting. Dr. Vanni took his time with me and my husband, explaining step by step.

After receiving conflicting medical opinions I was referred to Dr. Steven Vanni. From the first I was impressed. He was highly professional, knowledgeable and succinct in his review of my condition and he impressed upon me the need for surgery. He and his staff moved quickly and efficiently and 10 days later I was operated on. I had immediate relief from pain and a return of strength to my right arm. At 8 weeks I feel so much better and you can hardly see the scar. Dr. Vanni is the best!
in Delray Beach, FL |
I had a very positive experience with Dr Vanni! He is so knowledgeable, and helpful, as a patient I've never questioned anything in me that he was telling and recommending me. My surgery (ACDF) surgery got rid of 95% of my complains and pains, and I'm only a bit over then a month and half past surgery! Just follow his instructions, and trust his experience! Even his surgical team coordinator (Alina) is doing an outstanding job!

I was referred to Dr. Vanni by a friend, after two other surgeons would not even consider doing my cervical surgery, due to its difficulty. Dr. Vanni made me feel comfortable right away. He explained my condition very well. He was confident about the surgery that I needed. That made me feel that I made the right decision even though Miami was not geographically desirable. It was well worth it. His staff was pleasant and knowledgeable. Two months later, I am on my feet!

In 2012 I was recommended to Dr. Vanni for my back pain. He recommended a neuro-stim be implanted in my back to disrupt the pain sensors in my back. HE DID NOT EVEN DO A FLEXION or EXTENSION X-ray. He installed the stim machine and did a lamenectomy in my T9/10 to hold a "paddle". The stim did not work because my L4/ 5/S1 were unstable. The machine& paddle were removed 4 months later.Ihave been & still am suffering in great pain from the area he put the paddle. Of course,"pain" not his fault.

in Wellington, FL |
Dr. Vanni and all of his staff, from my initial visit, through my surgery, and then post op, were kind, knowledgeable, and professional. He is a top notch surgeon, and I absolutely feel that i was given the best advice and the best care possible. I would recommend him with 100% confidence to anybody that is in need of a neurosurgeon!! I am so grateful that he was my doctor.

Dr Vanni performed a Cervical lemonectomy procedure to correct damage spine thorax 1-6 if left untreated would lead to paralyses. Dr. Vanni explained my options. Treated with kindness and patience . Before January 8,2016 i was unable to walk ten steps due to immense pain i felt. Now five months after the procedure i now walk more longer without the pain i was feeling. This transformation came about through Dr. Vanni's skill and successful procedure. My name is Evelyn Chea. thanks to Dr. Vanni.
