Dr. Valente Says:

Doctor Valente returned to clinical practice full time 10 days after a reconstruction of his hip and a revision of a total hip replacement in December of 2014.  He was required to use crutches to ambulate, yet continued to evaluate patients and perform pain management procedures.  His dedication to patient care is evident in his determination to manage chronic pain in his patients despite his overwhelming physical limitations
