    - in Blairsville, PA |

    It was more than I expected. I had several bulging disc's that were crushing my spinal cord causing my right side to have no mobility and my left side to be numb. I had made an appointment to see the surgeon and to hopefully set up and appointment after the holidays to have surgery. Dr. Rutigliano sent me straight to the hospital for emergency surgery the following morning. This was on 12/17/15, today (12/23/15) I'm already walking 85% better than I have been since my surgery!
