"After suffering for many years I decided that my only course of action would be surgery. I researched many doctors and hospitals before choosing the hospital for special surgery and Dr. Alexander Hughes as my physician. I had bulging discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and arthritis. These conditions prevented me from standing for more than a few minutes and not being able to walk one block without severe pain."
"In order to keep my appointments I take a two hour train ride and then two subways uptown. Sometimes I spend more time traveling than seeing the doctor, but I feel it is a good time investment and don’t mind at all. And since I became a grandma for the first time in September, I need my joints and body to function properly to keep up with her!"
