Procedure: Anterior / Posterior Lumbar Fusion

 

What was your initial medical issue?

I had constant nerve pain in my left leg. There was no particular accident or injury that caused it, just ordinary wear-and-tear over time.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

I couldn’t be on my feet for very long or walk far at all. I had a constant throbbing pain in my leg. All the time.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

My family doctor told me that if I didn’t do something about my problem I’d end up in a wheelchair. I definitely did not want that!

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi? 

He came highly recommended by my primary care doctor.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

Anterior / Posterior Lumbar Fusion

How did you feel after treatment?

My leg pain was gone and I was out of the hospital in less than a week. I didn’t take a single pain pill. 

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

Everyone’s situation is different and you have to make your own decisions. Find a long-term solution to your pain.
