The Decision to Have Back Surgery Could Change Your Life for the Better

There’s no denying the fact that the decision to have back surgery is intimidating. Even if you know it’s the best decision for you and your long-term health, you may have some reservations.

By consulting with an experienced surgeon, you’ll learn more about your options, the finer details of surgery, and what to expect in regards to recovery.

We recently heard from a patient who was uncertain if they wanted to proceed with surgery. Fortunately, they decided in favor of it, and now, he’s living a better life.

Here’s what he had to say:

I do not have any scheduled follow ups with you, but I wanted to let you how I am doing. The decision to move forward with back surgery was a hard decision especially with the knowledge recovery would take at least 6 months. But once I met you, I knew I had chosen the best surgeon to help me. Recovery was exactly as you predicted. I had great help at home and I followed all your post op instructions and the outcome was much better than I expected.

Back surgery is a big decision, but it may be just what you need to improve your health and get back to the life you enjoy. Don’t hesitate to learn more about the benefits, as they pertain to your situation, as that’ll help you decide what to do next.
