I’m Dorothy and this is my story. With chronic back pain, despair can set in when you think the pain will never end. I chose surgery, and the results have brought back my hope.
Chronic back pain was something I thought I would have to live with forever. For years, I dismissed the persistent ache in my back until it started to interfere with my everyday life. After my consultation at Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, I was advised that surgery was the best option for me. I was encouraged that they could help alleviate my pain. They told me that back pain didn’t have to control my life anymore. I had other options.
The surgeons at Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas have extensive experience with advanced surgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques. Every part of my treatment was coordinated from the diagnosis to post-surgical care and physical therapy.
I didn’t really realize how bad my back pain was until the pain was gone. I thought I would have to learn how to adapt to life with chronic back pain, but thankfully I found a treatment that worked for me. I'm very glad I had the surgery. Today I feel great, and I'm back to doing the things I love, free from my back pain.
