“I firmly believe that positive attitude contributes a huge part to recovery. This surgery has been a blessing and has given me my life back!”

Life Prior To Surgery:

Jill’s struggle with leg and back pain began after her leg “gave out” while walking in the parking lot one afternoon after work. After this incidence, her leg was extremely weak which made driving exceedingly difficult. Jill tried chiropractic treatments which failed to provide long term relief from the numbness and tingling sensation radiating down her legs. Additionally, Jill struggled with back pain at night which made it difficult to sleep and get up from her bed in the morning. Jill’s constant discomfort in her legs took a toll on her personal and professional life and her chiropractor eventually referred her to Dr. Guy Fogel. When Dr. Fogel explained the severity of Jill’s condition and recommended surgery, Jill felt confident in his surgical expertise and didn’t hesitate to schedule a surgery date.

Situation Today:

After undergoing a successful XLIF surgery followed by a laminectomy, Jill was walking immediately. When she was discharged from the hospital, she volunteered to go to a rehab center where she started physical therapy. Soon, Jill had resumed grocery shopping, household chores and fulltime work after only 5 weeks! Although she struggled with some post-op leg pain that radiated from her upper thigh down to her foot, it eventually subsided and she now walks about 100 stairs every day

Important Note: As with any spine surgery, there are potential benefits and possible risks associated with the XLIF procedure. Individual results will vary. It is important that you discuss the possible risks and potential benefits of XLIF with your doctor prior to receiving treatment, and that you rely on your physician’s judgment. Only your doctor can determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
