I am 61, active and all of my passions involve movement, including my two grand children. I chose to ignore symptoms until my activities were impaired, then a few rabbit holes were followed and I asked for an MRI of my back. A diagnosis with numerous issues, none good but options of PT, injections, medications. I progressively worsened and at one point I could not stand still for over 2 minutes without pain dropping me to the ground and tears to my eyes. I could sit and lay but I began tripping over nothing, I couldn't hide it anymore. I tried a chiropractor combined with a massage therapist trained for athletic injuries and for the first time I felt relief, but I knew it was temporary, I still dealt with pain and intermittent loss of standing ability so I knew surgery was inevitable. My one last Hail Mary was acupuncture, no relief. After interviewing 5 surgeons I meant with Dr. Dumonski and within 10 minutes I knew he was the right one for me. He listened and welcomed my questions with answers I understood. He showed me compassion but not pity and he gave me hope. He made the negative possibilities understood but did not over dramatize them or treat me like I was clueless. My husband had questions and he answered without hesitation. My search was over, I trusted my instincts and I am 6 weeks post op with all of my original symptoms and problems gone. I have less pain then expected and although it may be a few more months of restrictions and then rehab, I am walking on my treadmill, traveling to see the grandchildren and living a normal life without twisting, bending and lifting over 10 lbs., life is great! I not only recommend Dr. Dumonski but I encourage anyone that is searching for a surgeon that can give them their quality of life back, someone they can trust and who will treat you with respect then call his office and use your judgement. There are never guarantees in life but I think Dr. Dumonski's skill tipped the scale my way when he was faced with an unexpected abnormality that I had apparently had from birth. He found it, made his adjustments and here I am.
Professional, trustworthy and a master at his craft. These are the words that I would use to define Dr. Mark Dumonski, his PA-C Kayla McKenzie and the staff at Guilford Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center. Let me explain why I feel so strongly about Dr. Dumonski. I am now 36 years old and had been living with severe lower back pain since I was in high school. I have been to chiropractors, physical therapists and other orthopedic centers from New York to North Carolina and have always been told that I just needed to âstrengthen my coreâ. I was never taken seriously until my first consultation with Dr. Dumonski a few years back. Dr. Dumonski took the time to patiently listen to yearsâ worth of my pain stories and failed attempts to get them corrected. Without hesitation he ordered tests and within a week I was given my first real diagnosis, degenerative disk and joint disease. With his experience he put a plan in place which started with lumbar injections. These injections worked great and gave me my first experience of pain relief in years. By the way, kudos to Dr. Wang for taking good care of me during this time! When the injections stopped working as we understood they would, Dr. Dumonski gave me a few options which included surgery (L4, L5 to S1 fusion). He explained to me the pros and cons of each option so that I was fully informed when I made my decision which was to have the surgery. The surgery was a success story for me and my family. For the first time I was able to go through my daily life without the back pain that made me feel so miserable. A few months out of surgery I noticed I was starting to have a different type of pain and immediately set up an appointment with Dr. Dumonski. He was very professional and again took the time to listen with an open mind. It was quickly diagnosed that my Sacroiliac Joints were now the culprit of my newly discovered pain. Again, Dr. Dumonski came up with a plan and a few months later I now have both Sacroiliac joints fused and I FEEL GREAT. I can easily say that for the first time since my teen years I am pain free. Although it was a difficult year with having the 3 surgeries, my quality of life has increased dramatically. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Dumonski, Kayla McKenzie and the whole staff at Guilford Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center for their dedication and persistence to making my life healthy and pain free.
