Procedure: Spinal Fusion
What was your initial medical issue?
I had low back pain and foot pain for five years. I never felt normal.
What did this issue prevent you doing?
I couldn’t function. I used to run marathons, but couldn’t anymore because of the pain.
What made you decide to do something about your problem?
I tried chiropractic, spinal injections, pain medication, and several other surgeries before I finally found Dr. Sinicropi.
Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?
I was referred to Dr. Sinicropi for a second opinion by my neurologist. His positive attitude towards a full recovery along with his confidence, assured me that he was the surgeon who could make a difference.
What treatment/procedure did you have done?
Lumbar fusion surgery.
How did you feel after treatment?
When I woke up I was a little groggy, but my back pain was gone. The surgery was a complete success and I’m very satisfied with the results.
What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?
To other patients I would say find a surgeon who is willing to spend extra time ensuring the surgery is done to best possible results.
