Quality of Life!!!

2016 now...had my spinal fusion in 2009, at the age of 52, and never looked back. Dr. Alexander dramatically improved my quality of life. I had gone from being reasonably active to not being able to walk to the bottom of my driveway without difficulty. After the surgery my back pain was gone, and once I healed, I felt "stable" and no longer had to "guard" every movement I made. I can do a 15 mile bike ride with ease. As far as recovery, it IS a surgery, but I was walking on the same day, was able to increase my activity daily, and 2 1/2 months later I went snow tubing.
