Laminectomy Surgery PatientProcedure: Spinal Laminectomy & Decompression

 

What was your initial medical issue?

I had been having pain in my lower back and down my legs for over a year.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

Walking over 100 feet, standing for more than 10 minutes and lifting anything over 5 Ibs.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

I finally decided I needed to improve my quality of life so I could do the things I wanted to do.

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?

Dr. Sinicropi did my 4 level fusion in my neck and I was pleased with the results of that procedure.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

I had a laminectomy and decompression done at L3-4 level.

How did you feel after treatment?

The pain down the legs was gone immediately. The back soreness is getting better by the day as I am only 3 weeks removed from my surgery. I am back to working full days already.

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

Get X-rays and a MRI done by your family physician. Then call Midwest Spine & Brain Institute to set up an appointment with Dr. Sinicropi.
