TRUE STORY: MARY UNDERWENT A TLIF AND IS NOW BACK TO THE LIFE SHE LOVES
Over a period of six months, I saw numerous physicians both orthopedic and neurosurgeons discussing my situation. I used to work in medical research and grant funding, so for me (and my back), this was a research project.
Along with my many back diagnoses and because of my scoliosis, I was referred to Dr. Good. He was considerate, attentive, intelligent and highly experienced. I had been having lower back pain that radiated into my legs. After diagnostic imaging results came back; I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I was a candidate for back surgery.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my surgery. I am proud to say at my six month mark I am almost 100% recovered. I did as I was guided and worked really hard at physically recovering. I have always exercised and now I put my best foot forward (and back) to the test. Today I am swimming my normal 25-30 laps, plus water aerobics and other physical workouts. As a minor note, I am 73 years old. They say healing takes longer after age 60. I am proud to say, I pushed the limits and moved relatively quickly through my milestones.
Thank you for the wonderful care and giving me back my life. I am so thankful and blessed to have made this fantastic recovery with the help from all of your staff.
Thank you to my team!
