I have been suffering with stabbing lower back pain that radiated down my R leg into my foot. I was receiving pain management for approx 2 years with some relief from injections and low dose opioids. I know they get a bad wrap but with strict supervision and not abusing them they do help dramatically with controlling pain. After 2 years I went to Dr Faunce. He reviewed my mri's and said he would be able to help relieve my pain. We scheduled surgery for Dec. 26th 2018. Great relief! Thank you!
