“After seeing several physicians in the tristate area, and still suffering from chronic back pain, I finally contacted Princeton Neurological Surgery and my experience there was life-changing. I first spoke with the office manager, who was extremely accommodating and helpful, and she actually put me on the phone with Dr. Lipani before I even arrived for my appointment. For the first time in several years, I was actually speaking to people who wanted to help me. Dr. Lipani could not have been more attentive and professional… Not only am I walking around and feeling so much better, but my faith in medicine is renewed, as it’s nice to know that there are still a few physicians who actually enjoy caring for patients and making them well.”

Revision Spine Surgery

Regardless of what’s happened before, revision spine surgery can get things right. Sometimes the previous surgery involved an inaccurate diagnosis. Sometimes the decompression wasn’t fully achieved and the nerve in question is still under some pressure. Dr. Lipani approaches these cases as if this is a first-time surgery, seeking to successfully address the patient’s ongoing pain.
