A Doctor who listens

My wife has a degenerative cervical spine with neuropathy (severe numbness) in both arms from her elbows down to her fingertips 24/7. This has worsened for the better part of fifteen years and drove her crazy at times. Doctors have told her that she needed neck surgery that requires going through the front of the neck. Because of a glowing review given to me from one of my customers that had Dr. Marciano do this surgery we traveled from out of state with the intent of him preforming the same surgery on her. When seeing him he asked many questions and listened intently, preforming general strength and reflex testing. He said “I know you came to me with the intention of having neck surgery but first I think we need to delve into this further.” He said “you have to listen to the story, there’s always a story”. Then he showed us her MRI explaining the problems in detail. Afterwards he stated “All that being said, I don't think your trouble is in your neck, I think it’s in your elbows.” He did say that he couldn't rule it out in the future. Well, to put it mildly we were thunderstruck. He said to confirm it he asked us to go to another doctor for an Electromyogram (EMG) test. After testing it was confirmed, she needed Ulnar nerve surgery. A minimal evasive elbow surgery with a two-week recovery compared to three months for the neck surgery. Dr. Marciano does not do this surgery. Well so much for doctors just in it for the money. I have no words that can express our appreciation. We thank our lucky stars for meeting him. The absolute worst that would have happened if not for him, someone doing that neck surgery and having no improvement for what was ailing her. I can only imagined how she would have felt. Sincerely, Boyd & Gayle Battrell

Dr. Marciano Saved My Life

I was in a car accident at age 18 and suffered a cervical injury to my neck. Over the years, my neck slowly eroded and I dealt with sporadic pain, weakness and numbness. In the fall of 2014 (32 years later), I began experiencing the feeling of difficulty swallowing, and pain and numbness in my face and arms. I was terrified. After visiting my family doctor, I asked to be referred to Barrow Neurosurgical Associates and Dr. Frederick Marciano in particular (after noting his designation as a "Top Doc"). Dr. Marciano reviewed my MRI's and recommended Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion (ACDF) due to bone spurs, deterioration of the discs and marked impingement on the spinal cord. I was very frightened and nervous going into the surgery. I just want to say that Dr. Marciano is kind, compassionate and wonderful! He is a great listener. He allayed my fears and we proceeded with the surgery. I am at 15 weeks post op and feeling very good. I am still healing but am doing great. I was treated very well at all of the post-op visits and he is always patient and kind. I feel that he saved my life and I am so fortunate that he was my doctor. Thank you again, Dr. Marciano.

I am the husband of a surgery nurse with experience of over 30 years experience. I needed Disc surgery. The surgery staff at her hospital overwhelmingly recommended Dr. Marciano. He did not even work at her particular hospital. But physicians and nurses there recommended Dr. Marciano.The Surgery was done at Scottsdale Healthcare at Osborn, instead. Very greatful and haven't had any related problems since my microdiscectemy. Sciatic pain is gone after enduring 18 months pain. I'm writing this 4 or 5 years later
