Adam


Spine Surgery Patient

Procedure: Spinal Discectomy

 

What was your initial medical issue?

I went to the ER with severe leg pain.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

I was unable to perform my duties at work. I could not bend over to put on my socks or tie my shoes.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

I was pretty much immobile. The day I went to the ER I could not put on my work boots because I was in so much pain.

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?

I was referred by a St Francis Emergency Room doctor.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

I had a discectomy.

How did you feel after treatment?

I was sore for a few days but the pain was pretty much gone. I could stand up straight.  I could walk better than  I had in a long time the same day after surgery.

What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?

Don’t wait for your pain to get so bad you can’t stand or sit comfortably.
