Spinal Fusion Brings Patient Relief

Surgery team in the operating room .After many years of pain and suffering, a patient visited our practice to better understand the cause of his back and neck pain.

Upon learning more about the patient’s situation, we determined that a spinal fusion was the best way to treat the problem once and for all.

While the patient was concerned about the procedure, we were able to put his mind at ease by providing a clear idea of what to expect both before and after the surgery. He shared the following with our staff:

“After surgery, I had tons and tons of questions about the way I was feeling, how the incisions looked, etc. Kami was there to help me with everything. She truly treated me as if I was a family member not just a patient. It has been a very long time since I have been treated so well in a doctor’s office. It’s a very personal office, not just a medical practice. They know you by name and case without having to look at your chart first.”

Shortly after surgery, the patient explained that he was already feeling better. By his first follow-up appointment, he noted he was pain-free for the first time in many years.

There’s nothing simple about a spinal fusion procedure, but it’s the best way to solve a variety of serious concerns. We were glad to be able to help this patient reclaim the life he had been dreaming of for so long.
