Claudia: I feel that it was a blessing that I was
able to find you to do the surgery and I am so happy that I chose the CED procedure
instead of a fusion... This fall, my husband, Bob, and I took our Harleys
and we rode all the way to Branson, Missouri and back! All
total was 5,500 miles! Read more...
Richard:I was eventually diagnosed as having a herniated disc which
was confirmed as a left L4-5 bulge on an MRI exam... Now,
I seldom think about my back, I am pain free, all lower extremity symptoms
have resolved, and I am able to participate in all physical activities without
discomfort just as I did before the herniated discs occurred. Read more...
Phil: It’s been almost 1 year
since my CED procedure and
am very pleased with the results. Improvement was evident immediately
post op, allowing me to spend the entire next day sightseeing with my wife.
Avoiding the use of narcotic pain meds was a huge plus since I do not tolerate
their side effects. I still cannot believe that this much simpler procedure
saved me from the more invasive level 2 cervical fusion that appeared to
be my only option before learning of your CED procedure. Read more...
