Procedure: Spinal Decompression
What was your initial medical issue?
Left leg sciatic nerve pain. I do a lot of physical labor, which overworked my back over the years. In May, I was doing some yardwork and I herniated a disc in my low back. Within a week I was using a walker and couldn’t put any weight on my left leg at all. I went to my primary physician and got an MRI. After that he recommended I see a spine specialist. I did an internet search and found Dr. Sinicropi online.
What did this issue prevent you doing?
Just about everything. I couldn’t put any weight at all on my leg. It was so bad that I couldn’t sleep and couldn’t sit down without pain.
What made you decide to do something about your problem?
It got so bad I just couldn’t function.
Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?
We found Midwest Spine & Brain Institute online and made an appointment right away.
What treatment/procedure did you have done?
How did you feel after treatment?
No pain at all when I woke up from the anesthetic. My leg was initially weak but with rehabilitation I soon was back to 100%. I feel better now than I did 5 years before this happened.
What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?
Call Midwest Spine & Brain Institute as fast as you can. You’ve only got one back, so take care of it. Dr. Sinicropi is a class act.
