Procedure: Cervical Spine Fusion
What was your initial medical issue?
I had pain in my neck and numbness in my right arm.
What did this issue prevent you doing?
I continued to do all of my normal activities, but everything was painful. Even sitting down was painful.
What made you decide to do something about your problem?
Before surgery I tried everything – physical therapy, injections, acupuncture, you name it. Nothing worked.
Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?
I found Midwest Spine & Brain and Dr. Sinicropi through my insurance.
What treatment/procedure did you have done?
How did you feel after treatment?
I was surprised that I did not have a lot of pain right after the procedure. I didn’t need many heavy meds at all – I was able to control the pain with Tylenol. After a few weeks I was back to all my normal activities.
What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?
Don’t suffer. If you need surgery, get it done.
