Juanita is a very pleasant female who was having such severe back and leg pain, that even simple activities for her were “miserable”. She tried medications, chiropractic, bracing, and injections. She steadily was getting worse and worse. She saw several spine surgeons who informed her that there was nothing wrong with her back. She continued to suffer.
She was then referred to Dr. Anagnost by her doctor. Dr. Anagnost found that she had a defect in her back and disc, that was causing excessive motion and grinding to back and her nerves.
She underwent Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery by Dr. Anagnost. “I woke up after my surgery and my pain was literally gone !” She was able to begin walking immediately and went home the next morning after her surgery. “Not only that, my incision was so small, I could hardly even see it. Dr. Anagnost did an amazing job, and he gave me my life back, when no one else would.”
