Specialties

Dr. Thomas Mango has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

falling asleep

First time AND last time for me. Went to see Dr. Mango for the first time. First of all he had a hard time with the computer. Second, he sat down beside me to talk about why I was there. Noticed his eyes were VERY red and blood shot. During the course of our conversation he keep closing his eyes. Speech was not slurred and he carried on a descent conversation. BUT the man was literally falling asleep. At one point his head nodded down, I asked him if he was tired. He said " No I was just looking at your sandals, they look very comfortable." Right,the man was falling asleep. I don't know if he was tired, hung over, on something or what. I really don't know. BUT what I do know he WAS falling asleep. Do you think I want a doctor falling asleep and preforming surgery on me. NO WAY IN H---! I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE EVER AGAIN!!! EVER!
