Dr. Anthony Guanciale has the following 2 specialties
- Orthopedic Surgery
An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.
In addition to treating trauma to the musculoskeletal system, these doctors also deal with sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.
- Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine
If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.

My husband was referred to this doctor for neck, shoulder and arm pain the doctor therefore told my husband that he needed L4 and L5 surgery on his neck, my husband and I arrived at the hospital for his scheduled surgery after being prepped for surgery Dr. Guanaciale came into room with a demeanor as if this was an inconvenience he was very distant, unfriendly with a terrible bedside manor. He barely said hello, took a marker and made 5 dots on my husbands neck telling him this is where the incision would be made. I proceeded to ask the doctor some questions which I think offended him and made him uncomfortable he stumbled over his words almost like he didn't know my husbands case or file he got very defensive with my questions about the procedure and what to expect after the surgery, asking if my husband would be free of pain my line of questions made him so uncomfortable he therefore turned and walked out of the room leaving my husband and myself in a disbelief of the events that had just unfolded we just looked at each other lost for words with our mouths dropped to the floor! Upon returning a few minutes later he said that he didn't find this surgery to be necessary at this time and again turned and left the room. Had I not done some research and ask questions my husband would of had an unnecessary surgery that would have probably left him crippled because he doesn't have mobility in his arms to have done the physical therapy that would have been required to heal his neck post surgery. I have never in my life experienced such behavior from a professional of his status. Anthony Guanaciale was cold, rude, contradictory, and down right mean! Anthony Guanaciale is a person that has become detached from having any sympathy for others well being. I would by all cost AVOID THIS DOCTOR! It scares me to think, had I not been there what the outcome of my husbands future health would be like. This has definitely been an eye opener we will never put our full trust in a medical professional without doing extensive research. We trusted our PCP who referred us to this "doctor" so now I'm in question to myself wether or not our PCP has our best interest at heart. Don't assume all is good just because your PCP referred you. Do your homework!
