Janet


Procedure: Spinal Fusion

 

What was your initial medical issue?

I had excruciating back pain to the point where I could barely walk. I went to my doctor, and he told me that I had serious issues with my lumbar vertebrae – it was basically bone rubbing on bone.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

A lot. It pretty much shut everything down.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

It just got to be too much. I couldn’t take the pain.

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?

I was referred from my primary care doctor. Dr. Sinicropi was his top recommendation. I ultimately went with Dr. Sinicropi because of his professionalism and warmth. I trusted him.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

Lumbar Spinal Fusion.

How did you feel after treatment?

I didn’t experience much pain at all. Regaining my strength was the hardest, but the pain was never out of control.

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

Act quickly, don’t delay. Research to make sure you have someone like Dr. Sinicropi. He wanted the surgery as minimal as possible rather than making it more complicated than it needed to be. I highly recommend him and his team.
