Dr. Lovecchio's reputation is that of a skilled orthopedic spine surgeon who is unafraid of a complicated case and dedicated to his patient's care. I experienced that and more - he is smart, proactive and thoughtful.

I was referred to Dr. Francis Lovecchio by two physicians who understood my condition. I have an advanced movement disorder (early-onset Parkinson's disease), a large spinal synovial cyst and severe stenosis that necessitated lumbar fusion surgery.

I am six months post-surgery and it has been a complete and total success. I could not have had a better experience. At times I will have some discomfort and find relief wearing the back brace I was given or icing the area.

I was blessed and extremely lucky to have met Dr. Lovecchio and his very capable team. The hospital care is specialized, impeccable and in abundance. Every single person employed at HSS anticipated what I needed and was extremely supportive in seeing me recover.

In overhearing Dr. Lovecchio's visit with me, my hospital roommate was so impressed with his bedside manner she asked for his name. Another day, although away for the holiday, he called to see how I was.

The administration of his office and the hospital is first rate. All pre- and post-surgery testing is arranged in house, thorough and easy. Records and bill paying is streamlined and simple. I commute from DC to NYC for my visits and will continue to do so. I have no doubt if you seek his expertise you will be pleased with the outcome.

With every good wish,

Patient Kathy (KJT)
