“I had severe Sciatic pain and was on continuous pain meds that never worked. I decided to give a call to Dr. Valente. After my surgery I woke up pain free! I would highly recommend Dr. Valente to anyone who has sciatic pain. He is a very good doctor and a very nice man who was never too busy to talk to me. I never felt rushed. Pain is no longer an issue in life”

“I had a lot of numbness in my left arm and hand. Like needles in my fingers. It was constant and it extended even into my left leg. I woke up from the surgery and the numbness was gone. I thought something was wrong because I was so used to the discomfort. None of it has come back since the surgery.”

“The most amazing thing is I’ve had no pain from the surgery for my neck. I am amazed at how every thing has gone.”

“If I ever had to have another surgery or knew someone who needed it I wouldn’t go to anyone but him!”

“I feel privileged to have Dr. Valente as my doctor and believe his hands are gifts from God. He told me to expect less pain after surgery, but I honestly didn’t expect I’d have zero pain! I can dance and ride my bike again. In fact, both my husband and I have started living a more active, healthier lifestyle.”

“It doesn’t even feel like I had surgey. I have had no pain since surgery. Before surgery I could not walk very far without being in too much pain. It’s like a miracle!”

“I thought Dr. Valente was wonderful. He took away my pain, what more could I have asked for? It’s been a blessing. Dr. Valente saved me, he fixed me right up!”

“I had severe problems with my legs being numb…almost like they weren’t there or I lost my legs. After having surgery with Dr. Valente my legs are fantastic! Dr Valente took the time to explain and was never in a hurry with me. I loved his bedside manner”

“The difference is HUGE!”

“I’m feeling fantastic. I can’t even describe the difference in my life.”

“The outcome is more important and focus on the long-term results.”

“Surgery can be difficult but if you focus on the long-term goals, the outcome is TOTALLY worth it. I am 2 1/2 months post a four level fusion, and feeling fantastic. Every week of recovery, I am finding something more and new I can do that I couldn’t do before.”
