“I was so frightened, I couldn’t even think straight, but I believed in Dr. Qasim Husain’s expertise. Today, I’m mobile—walking unassisted, driving a car, walking the stairs without holding onto the railing. I’m so grateful. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and my entire care team at Hackensack Meridian Health.” — Gina Petillo, Little Silver, N.J.
“Dr. Robert Heary saved my life. I can’t imagine what would have happened had I not chosen him to perform my spinal fusion surgery.” — Laura Messina, Bloomfield, N.J
