Dominick P Ready to Roll

"The surgery was life changing ... It's almost indescribable, the joy you feel from finding the solution and getting rid of the pain."

Dominick Pace had a partial discectomy to help soothe the pain caused by a herniated disc in 2014. But that surgery provided only temporary relief for his decade-long battle with back pain. Dominick then turned to Gino Chiappetta, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, for a more permanent solution. Dr. Chiappetta performed an artificial disc replacement and soon after the surgery, Dominick was back to his favorite activities — pain free.
