Patient Comments (2)
Oakland, CA |
With spinal stenosis in both my cervical collar and lumbar, surgery was what all the doctors said until I met Dr. Minkowsky. She has helped me move into a relatively active life with guidance, exercises, and support. I'll never be 100% active again but I mostly work in the range of 80 %, with no surgery. Those are better odds than the surgery gave, with no downtime, stress and painful recuperation.
