Broken back from high fall to concrete.
Morris L.

My wife fell through the attic and landed on the garage floor 10 foot below. Luckily Dr Elia was the trauma neurosurgeon on call. He did a fantastic job and she has recovered very well. He is great at communication and even better at spine repair. I would recommend him to everyone.

Donna & Bill

I'm submitting this review on behalf of my husband. He had multi-level spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Elia was great and explained everything and answered all of our questions. Great bedside manner. Would definitely recommend Dr. Elia.

Dr. Elia examined me after I suffered years with spinal stenosis and nerve radiculopathy. Dr. Elia was straightforward, telling me that surgery was a 50-50 that I would receive any relief. He could have refused to perform the surgery, with the likelihood that it may not be successful.

Great Doctor - Highly Recommend
Jen S.

My experience with Dr. Elia and his team was absolutely wonderful. I had chronic everyday pain in my neck and opted for disc replacement surgery instead of a fusion. I am 6 weeks post-op and am happy to report I am finally pain free for the first time in 7+ years. I would highly recommend Dr. Elia.
