WELCOME BACK, DR. FUSCO ! I am glad to see that you are now at Aria Health as Director of the Trauma Program. In 1991, Dr. Diane Paladino performed my Spleenectomy, by doing Lapo, and you were one of the doctors who took care of me during that time. Dr. Paladino said it was the first time that she removed a spleen by Lapo. It was your care and concern that made my recovery much easier. I still remember you saying when you entered my room, that you thought you were in the wrong room, as I looked so great and was recovering very well. You did not believe that I was 71 years old. I wish you well and Thanks for your care. Anna Bane
