Chris’ Anterior Cervical Decompression Fusion Patient Story

Posted on: November 17th, 2023 by Our Team

I am a patient of Dr. Federico P. Girardi. I was recommended to him by my wife’s friend husband, who had used Dr. Girardi in a previous surgery. In my first meeting with Dr. Gerardi, I knew that if I needed surgery, he was going to be the one to do it. I find nowadays some doctors are lacking personality and bedside manner. With him I didn’t feel that way, I felt as if I was in meeting with a family member. He took the time to explain and discuss my options. One of my doctor visits before the surgery one of his associates came out in the waiting room and told me that he was going to be a little behind because he was called in for emergency, assisting another doctor in surgery. Now at that point I felt that I had made the right decision, because of the simple fact that if other doctors are calling him for help, he must be very good.  Obviously, I did not mind waiting at all for as long as it took. Dr. Girardi is a gentleman in every sense of the word and I would recommend him to anybody. I had a fusion in my neck on the C-4-6 on April 25,2023. I had numbness in my right arm for about 2 1/2 to 3 months and loss of strength. After surgery I don’t have any pain and I regained the strength back in my hand. My surgery went great and my recovery went even better. I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome. His staff in office and in the hospital are great. All around I had a great experience.
