I had a left L4-5 microdiscectomy and foraminotomy on 05-13-2019 with Dr. Chambi. I had a very successful surgery. I had severe lumbar pain, and after surgery I have no pain. I was not able to sit for prolong periods of time, but but I can sit comfortably. I have been with dr. Chambi for the past 4 years, and have had 4 surgeries with dr. Chambi. Every surgery has been a success. I would highly recommended dr. Chambi for any spine problem, Carpal tunnel syndrome, or Thoracic outlet syndrome.
