Patient Experiences

“When I was suffering with intense back pain I researched the best surgeon in the NY area and Dr. Petrucci’s name kept coming up, not only from those that had been in her care, but especially from other experts in the field. My experience with Dr. Petrucci was amazing! She cares, is clear, has a great bedside manner and thankfully, as of today, I am 6 years pain free. I’m forever in debt to her and I strongly recommend her as a surgeon.” – Mike K.
