Dr. Nigro has done all of my daughters surgeries who was born with HRHS. He is nothing short of amazing. It is a testament to me that he is capable of going from one case to another with such professionalism and compassion. He even puts so much effort to minimize scaring. That being said, his whole team at Rady children hospital staff are welcoming and amazing with kids.
