Procedure: ACDF Spinal Surgery

 

What was your initial medical issue?

Pain in my shoulder and neck, numbness in my arm, and a constant tingling in my fingers.

What did this issue prevent you doing?

I had trouble sleeping, and I could barely carry anything – even a purse or a bag of groceries was difficult.

What made you decide to do something about your problem?

The pain got worse and worse to the point that it was unbearable.

Why did you choose Dr. Sinicropi?

I was referred by my family doctor.

What treatment/procedure did you have done?

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion.

How did you feel after treatment?

Right after the procedure, I felt great. The numbness, tingling, and pain was completely gone. It’s now a year after my surgery and I feel fantastic.

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

Don’t wait. Surgery is worth it if you’re in pain.
