Dr. Matthew Maserati comes to WellSpan from Altoona, Pa. He completed his residency at The University of Pittsburgh and has fellowship training in spinal deformity.
"When you come to an appointment with me, you can expect that your concerns will be heard, that you will be treated with respect, and that you will undergo a thorough evaluation of your neurological symptoms," said Dr. Maserati. "I work with my patients to establish a detailed plan for diagnosis and treatment."
Dr. Maserati also brings expertise in computer-assisted surgical navigation, minimally invasive spinal surgery and total disc replacement in the neck and spine.
