Procedure: Spinal Laminotomy
What was your initial medical issue?
I had a burning sensation in my shoulders, numbness that extended down my arm, and a sort of electric ‘twang’ feeling when I moved a certain way. These symptoms were relentless for nearly 12 years.
What did this issue prevent you doing?
I had trouble working and even doing everyday tasks.
What made you decide to do something about your problem?
Eventually it got so bad that I had an MRI, which revealed herniated discs and spinal stenosis.
Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?
Once I knew I needed surgery, I started doing my research online. Dr. Sinicropi was very highly regarded and reviewed. I could tell that he really cares about his patients.
What treatment/procedure did you have done?
How did you feel after treatment?
Right away my previous symptoms were gone. I was on pain meds for only three days after surgery and I started to sleep well for the first time in years.
What advice would you give other patients in a similar situation to you?
If you need surgery, don’t wait – go see Dr. Sinicropi. I was so pleased with his care that I have since referred a good friend to him as well.
