in Mesa, AZ |
My surgery was 30 years ago last month. I was a child. All these years later any doctor that has had to look into my spinal fusion is in awe. I have lived a normal fantastic life. With no spinal issues. Most of my spine was fused. I was left with 4 good vertebrae. I just had to have L5S1 fused due to fractures. I am so thankful for the skilled hands of Dr. Slack so many years ago.
