Lou-Ellen’s Minimally Invasive Fusion Surgery

I was suffering from back pain. I had a crushed disc that put pressure on my lower back and kept me in constant pain from the waist down. I tried pain medicine, rehab, even neurology, but nothing seemed to work.

Edna’s Kyphoplasty Procedure

My mother was really comfortable with the people and atmosphere at the Spine Center and Dr. Patel made my wife and I as comfortable as possible when we ultimately decided to choose surgery. My mother was in so much pain that waiting to see if the injury healed itself was not an option. So Dr. Patel performed a kyphoplasty procedure and we waited eagerly for the results.

Mr. M's Spine Surgery

After three years almost since the auto accident of 3/98, I have endured leg pain and low back pain. Tried to live with it but it only got worse. Through fate or design I came to know and have Dr. Patel as my doctor. I am now able to lay on my right side, sounds simple but have been unable to for so long.

Ms. V’s Kyphoplasty Procedure

I have osteoporosis, but I have always been able to walk comfortably and get around on my own. I do my errands and things around the house without a significant problem.

Joan’s Lower Lumbar Spine Surgery

When Joan started experiencing numbness in her toes, she visited The Spine Health Institute to find out what could be causing the problem. After meeting with Dr. Patel, Joan found out that all four of her lower lumbar vertebrae were in need of serious attention. Within one week Dr. Patel performed a life-changing surgery on Joan, effectively eliminating her pain and numbness. Joan says she walks farther now than she ever has in 30 years. Watch Joan’s Story.

Louis’ Mini-Access Fusion Surgery

After three years of dealing with numbness in his feet and legs, Louis decided enough was enough. He visited The Spine Health Institute, where Dr. Patel suggested a Mini-Access Fusion surgery for Louis. Before his life-altering treatment, Louis could only walk for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. The morning after his surgery, Louis was able to walk freely, without pain. Watch Louis’ story.

Bill’s Minimally Invasive Fusion Surgery

With his family’s support, Bill underwent surgery to fuse his vertebrae together, allowing the fracture to heal. After the procedure, Bill was able to get up and walk around, even encouraging his fellow hospital patients to do the same. With Dr. Patel’s help, Bill and his wife are back to their normal exercise routines. Watch Bill’s Story.

Diana’s Spine Surgery
