"Dr Trontis has helped me immensely. My spine is almost fully fused and I repeatedly had problems because the fusion was done in small sections that kept pulling apart. Dr Trontis removed the pieces and replaced them with solid rods. And the problems have stopped and he has helped to substantially decrease the pain. He is a compassionate, caring and highly professional doctor for whom I have full faith and trust. He has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent listener. I would highly recommend him as a spinal surgeon."
