Procedure: Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery

 

What was your initial medical issue?

I had pain in my back and legs that developed over time.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

I had a hard time sleeping and walking.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

The pain had been bothering me for a long time. I tried physical therapy and injections – but nothing helped.

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?

I was referred by my primary care doctor.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

Lumbar Fusion.

How did you feel after treatment?

When I work up after surgery, my leg pain was gone. The second day after the procedure, I was up doing physical therapy exercises.

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

Don’t wait and suffer in pain. Seek help from Dr. Sinicropi. I’m 75 years old now and I feel better than I have since I was 40!
