Charles R. Collins
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.
