I suffered with back pain for 28 years. With no lasting relief from any other treatment, I agreed to finally see a neurosurgeon and have the procedure I needed. Dr. Woods, Samantha and the rest of the Vertrae staff were very professional, thorough, compassionate and in my opinion, are the best in the business! I am 8 months post op, bi-level ALIF, and have accomplished things I never dreamt possible. I know how back pain feels, the fear of surgery, just settling because you’re physically unable to do more, meds, shots and temporary relief from every treatment known to man, so back pain had become just a part of life for me. NO MORE! Not to be cliche’ BUT “if I had known, I would have don’t this years ago”. Dr. Woods has literally changed my life and I am eternally grateful!
