My husband who is 81, had a recent laminectomy, because he was experiencing numbness in both legs, which resulting in falling. Dr. Henderson has given him a higher quality of his remaining years, because he is free of pain. standing taller, and enjoying walking with our dog twice a day. Thank you!!
in Gustavus, AK |
Dr. Henderson did an amazingly successful job correcting the serious spinal stenosis in my lower back. I currently lead a very active physical life in Alaska and I'm able to do all the activities I could not do without serious pain before the surgery by Dr. Henderson. My lower back does get tired sooner with some mild ache, but I no longer have the severe sciatica that I had before the surgery. And after a brief rest, the ache disappears and I can resume my activities pain free.
