Patient Comments (1)
in West Jefferson, Oh |
I am a 37 yr old male that came in with extreme pain and was struggling to walk from a upper thoracic herniation.3 other neurosurgeons and 2 neurologist that had all recommended surgery.He was on track for surgery but then canced everything and just told me I had chronic pain syndrome and wasn't a text book case.I just got out of Mayo Clinic and I have had improvement of symptom.Upper leasions do cause lower motor neuron problems! Mayo will be writing a paper on me and the less invasive approach
