We appreciate all of our patients very much and understand how helpful reading past reviews can be for our future patients. If you are a past patient and can take the time to leave us a review on one of the sites below that would be very much appreciated.
When I was around 10 years old, I first noticed that I had a mild form of pectus excavatum. As I got older, the depression in the middle of my chest became deeper. Once I started my growth spurt at the age of 14, the pectus excavatum became considerably worse. As an athlete, who actively swims on a year-round swim team and for high school during the winter season, I started to experience shortness of breath especially when diving after the turns. Once being a long-distance swimmer, I now felt out of breath soon. At this point, my parents and I knew that I needed help. We live in CT and wanted to talk to somebody who is a true expert in this field. We were excited to learn that Dr. LoSasso had recently moved his practice to the Tristate-Area. In a long and thorough consultation, Dr. LoSasso explained the option of the Nuss-procedure to us. My parents and I quickly reached a high comfort and trust level in the procedure and Dr. LoSasso’s capabilities.
Dr. LoSasso and Georgia were very helpful in getting the required medical pre-surgery visits done. I had surgery in July and everything went well. Not only Dr. LoSasso but also the staff and nurses at Valley Hospital were the best you could ask for. I always felt safe and well taken care of. I was up and walking outside for at least an hour per day after 2 weeks and did not feel sore anymore one month after surgery. I started physical therapy and easy swimming and quickly found out that I could dive longer than ever before. 3 months post-surgery, I had a follow-up appointment with Dr. LoSasso. I was very happy to hear that now I can start with full practices again just in time for High School Swim Season. Thank you, Dr. LoSasso! I should also mention that the cosmetic results are awesome. No more sunken chest and the scars are healing nicely.

“Because our son’s chest was sunken in, his lungs and heart were compromised. If he did not have the surgery, these issues would have escalated with age,” explained father David Goldsholl. “It was very important to us that we chose a surgeon with extensive experience in correcting this problem, so we spent weeks researching doctors in our region. This is not a surgery you take chances on with inexperience. We are so happy that we chose to have our son treated by Dr. LoSasso and The Valley Hospital.”

I cannot recommend Dr. Losasso enough. He is incredibly competent – a true expert in his field, and he is also warm, caring, and has wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to explain everything and we never felt rushed. He inserted my daughter’s bar in San Diego and removed it in New Jersey. Both experiences were smooth and all the nurses and assistants we worked with in both locations were friendly and excellent too. I was able to get our insurance to cover the cost as in-network as well.

We have nothing but great things to say about both surgeries. Both the California office staff and New Jersey office staff were always available to speak with and spent a lot of time working out the logistics of the surgeries. Dr LoSasso is definitely the expert in the Nuss Procedure and very attentive to both the patient and the parents. He made sure that we had a full understanding of what would happen during the insertion and removal of the bars. Although I was a bit disappointed that he moved from California to New Jersey towards the end of my son’s time with the bars, we ended up having a wonderful family vacation in New York/New Jersey to have the bars removed. I was especially thankful when Dr. LoSasso had said after the surgery that he remembered when he inserted the two bars that he placed them in such a way that he could remove them in an easier manner.

Dr. LoSasso performed the Nuss procedure on me when I was 50 years old. I am two years post-op and my health couldn’t be better. If you are an adult with PE, you need a surgeon with plenty of experience. I highly recommend Dr. LoSasso and the Center of Excellence for Pectus.

Dr Losasso’s team was incredible including Valley hospital. Everything was done perfect and very professional. I would highly recommend this team. They corrected my sons chest and with very little pain. Thank you for a great job done.

Getting the Nuss Procedure not only greatly increased my vitality, but also spurred a passion for the medical field. It completely changed my life and was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.
From the day I was diagnosed to when I had the surgery was a long tough journey for me. The surgery honestly changed my life making it so much better. Thank you all.
It was worth it! I appreciate Dr. LoSasso and his team’s efforts in making my surgery successful!
The Nuss procedure changed my life. I can breathe easy and I have a lot more endurance now. I can run and hike like never before! Dr. LoSasso is the best!
Dr. LoSasso saved my life. I originally received the Nuss Procedure from another surgeon in San Diego who claimed to know how to properly perform the Nuss Procedure. However…
Dr. LoSasso and his team are fantastic. We wanted the best and found it in them. Thank you so much for helping our son have a better quality of life.
