For over a year, I suffered strong back and leg pain due to two herniated disks and spinal stenosis. I was treated by Dr. Semih Gungor and despite his efforts my pain continued. While traveling in Japan with my nephew, my back and leg pain became too much to bare. All of the photos of me during the trip was while I was sitting down which alleviated the pain. The day after returning, I was in Dr. Gungor's office discussing our next step, surgery. He recommended Dr. Alexander Hughes and a date was set. Dr. Hughes performed the surgery in July and now in early September, I am pain free and able to walk my daily 2-4 miles. I am now able to return to work, plan travel trips with my wife and very simply, resume my life. I cannot thank both Drs. Gungor and Hughes for giving me my life and freedom back. I also wish to thank the amazing Nursing Staff at HSS, especially those in recovery and on the 6th Floor. Thank you HSS! Sincerely, Chris Forte, Bayside, NY
