To Whom It May Concern:,
Following is a brief description of my experience with disabling back
problems, and the success I had with Dr. Schiffer’s minimally invasive
I had experienced chronic low back pain for many years, but about a year
ago I was further injured while lifting weight I had no business lifting. I
have always been very active, independent, and lead a very busy life with my
job, and raising two grandchildren. After the lifting injury, I had several
episodes of severely painful days, which had very limited response to PT and
injections. The response was very short lived and the condition deteriorated
with each passing day. My legs became increasingly weak and painful and the
low back pain was horrific. I had numerous tests, injections in the spine,
a discogram, and visits to doctors near my hometown. I was told I would require
fusions to correct the situation. The injections did not relieve the pain at
all. My investigation of fusions and alternatives led me to Dr. Schiffer’s
web site. That was the best discovery I have ever made. The web site is very
informative. All of the investigation I did on fusion made me strongly desire
to find some other alternative for sure. I sent my reports and films to Dr.
Schiffer and he recommended a three level LED/TA. By that time I was barely
able to navigate using a walker, and could not accept that this would have
to be permanent way of life..
I made the trip to California in June of 2003. I had surgery and was able
to walk out to the car following my hour and a half in recovery. As you can
imagine, I was so thrilled. I would hardly believe what had happened. The leg
weakness and pain was the first to go away, and I was so thrilled to put the
walker up and out of sight. My recovery went very well considering the number
of levels that had to be worked on. It has now been almost five months since
surgery, and I am pretty much back to normal. This was the best decision I
have ever made, and if I have any other disc herniations, I will be looking
for Dr. Schiffer, so he can again perform his miracles. He is a wonderful person,
has a wonderful staff, and the staff at the surgery center were great too.
I am so grateful that Dr. Schiffer has set up the web site as he has. My outcome
would not have been so successful if the fusions had been performed instead..
