Lower back pain is a common problem that severely impacts the quality of your life. Nearly 80 percent of adults will experience low back pain at some point in their life. Chronic low back pain is defined as pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer. This type of back pain can limit your ability to be active, and affect the quality of your daily life.
PATRICK M. ~ LOW BACK PAIN/MUSCLE STRAIN
I made an appointment based on hours of searching Google for a spine specialist. At 28 I was getting around like a grandpa and was in tremendous pain. I saw Dr. Giuffrida the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and he prescribed me an anti-inflammatory medication. The next day I was doing laundry and cleaning my place with no pain, amazingly I could bend down and touch my toes again. When I visited my parents on Thursday for Thanksgiving they were happy to see me walking with my back straight and able to get up off the couch without a struggle or pain! No injections or surgery were needed, and I wish I would have discovered Cantor Spine Institute earlier. After waiting 8 years to address my back pain, I feel I am living a way more active life. The entire staff from receptionist, to assistants to doctor were friendly and most importantly the problem I had with my back was fixed. If you’re looking to fix your back problem I highly recommend starting by making an appoint here.
ARTHUR M. ~ LOW BACK PAIN/RADICULAPATHY
About six weeks ago I developed a searing constant pain up and down my left leg. At the time, I was also having tremendous stress in my life as my hubby was in and out of hospital and rehab. I visited him every day in absolute agony. Finally was recommended to Dr. Anthony Giuffrida by my son, Rob, who was seeing an orthopedist at Holy Cross. After viewing the MRIs that I brought it was recommended that I try a pain medication. Took it for 10 days, pain abated a little but the searing pain was still in my lower foot and ankle. All this time I maintained an active life due to my situation. It was not fun. Dr. Giuffrida saw me for a second visit on Dec7, 2018. At that time he recommended further treatment which hopefully would alleviate the pain entirely. Believe it or not, am writing this the day after treatment, practically pain free which to me is a MIRACLE. The DR. and his ENTIRE STAFF are people of extraordinary know how, integrity, friendliness and caring. It is possible to fall in love with all of them! Now you know the rest of the story! Love you guys!
KELLY B. - LOWER BACK PAIN/RADICULOPATHY
My husband is in the medical field and did his due diligence before my spinal fusion in 2011 to find the very best physician. Every doctor he knew said that Dr. Cantor is the best. And they were right. I am so thankful he was my surgeon. Not only did my surgery go flawlessly, the results exceeded my expectations. I have recently gone back for stenosis/bulging disc/compressed nerve at another location in my back. Rather than recommending immediate surgery, Dr. Cantor suggested we try a spinal epidural, performed by Dr. Giuffrida, in his office. Two injections later, I am almost pain free. I just can’t recommend Cantor Spine Institute highly enough.
STANLEY E. ~ LOWER BACK PAIN/KYPHOPLASTY
Can't say enough good things about this office. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable & efficient. Dr. Cantor diagnosed my spine problem correctly, and recommended a minimally invasive surgery, whereas other physicians wanted to do extensive back surgery. The surgery was performed by Dr. Anthony Giuffrida. After 7 months of constant pain, Dr. Giuffrida gave me back my life. A wonderful physician who takes the time to explain everything in detail. One of the best and nicest doctors I have ever been to.
RICHARD G. ~ LOWER BACK PAIN/DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE/NECK PAIN/SPINAL STENOSIS
Dr. Giuffrida and his staff are a refreshing change from another pain management provider. There is a wonderful ambience in his office indicated by warm and friendly interactions...in fact I have never been greeted with so many SMILES at a doctor's office before!. Dr. Giuffrida was ON TIME and very personable and methodical in his interactions and investigation into my chronic condition. His initial diagnosis and treatment was 100% spot on and I'm working and fishing again!
