Wonderful surgeon....highly recommend!

I am a 50-year old healthy female who started experiencing severe back pain. I was devastated, at first, to learn, after trying physical therapy for months, that surgery was the next option. Now, less than a year later, after a fusion and laminectomy in my lower back, I feel incredible and back to my old self! Dr. Musante explained everything, thoroughly, to me and never pressured me to do anything I didn't want to do. I just had my last visit with him, and he told me, after looking at my X-rays, that it could not have turned out better. And I agree!

Surgery changed my life for the better

Dr. Musante performed lower back surgery on me one year ago. Looking back, it was life changing for the better. Successful surgery in a great hospital. Dr. Musante's surgery skills are excellent. He gave me my life back. I think his office visits are hit and miss. I've seen him on days where he was short, and other days where he listened at length. If you want a friend to talk to, go elsewhere. If you need a surgeon, he's the guy.

He is THE best!

On Aug.2 2017 Dr. Musante performed a lumbar Laminectomy and Spinal Fusion on me. L3-4 . I had read some of his reviews before I first went to Dr. Musante but mainly I had to go in network for my insurance. How fortunate I got him! He is professional, and friendly. He explained everything in detail to me even using diagrams to show me what was happening to my spine. His care was very conservative. First X-rays, physical therapy, and when that was not helping , an MRI. After explaining the MRI results to me he said that because I am only 45 this will be a quality of life issue. That I was much to young to have to endure this pain. Can I live in constant pain? I decided no I could not. The only way to relieve the nerve was surgery. I was in shock. Never had I ever thought I would need surgery. This stuff just doesnt happen to me. I have always been healthy. When I explained to Dr. Musante I would not accept blood transfusions due to my religious beliefs, he was extremely supportive and immediately explained how he would go about the surgery to accommodate my needs without blood. He didnt even hesistate or skip a beat! How reassuring for me! He was able to really inspire confidence and trust in me and that is so important. You need to know your in good hands especially when it comes to something as important as surgery. Terri Smith his assistant is the sweetest, and when I was in tears she was very comforting. She always answered my calls when I had questions. She made me feel like I had a "friend" to support me. My surgery was 2 plus hours. The hospital staff at North Carolina Specialty Hospital were very helpful, kind and friendly. They knew how nervous I was and did everything possible to make me feel calm. Dr. Musante visited my husband after the surgery and explained how everything went. Then when I was settled in my room he came to see me. I hope he heard me say thank you. I was a bit groggy from surgery. Words can not express how grateful I was. A few hours later the physical therapist came and got me on my feet walking. I felt NO pain in my legs. No numbness, No spasms, No hip ache. I havent been able to walk like that in months. What a huge relief. Now I just deal with the incision pain, which is healing nicely. Its been 2 weeks now and I have had my follow up with Roger Ordronneau. He is great! Very knowledgeable and friendly. In fact I think the entire staff at Triangle Orthopaedic Associates is fantastic. From the waiting room to the DR. Always treated me with kindness and professionalism. I would highly reccomend Dr. Musante to anyone who needs help. Without a doubt one of the best surgeons in Raleigh. I am excited to have my life back, and thanks to him I can!
