For most of my adult life I suffered from undiagnosed or misdiagnosed "back pain." As a young adult I was very active - football, wrestling, track, skiing. Later in life I started to enjoy golfing. The pain I was experiencing about 2 years ago was seriously affecting the condition of my life - I had stopped golfing, I was taking far too much pain medication, monthly epidurals and myriad other treatments.
The time had come to do something about my life, not just my back pain. After meeting with Dr. Cammisa, it was determined that surgery was the best option. Thanks to the enormous talents of Dr. Cammisa, the operation was flawless and my recovery pain and infection free,
As I tell my story, I am standing at my desk without pain, without any back discomfort. Just two hours ago I completed 18 holes of golf - enjoyed myself like I had not in many years.
My story if very simple: surgery performed by Dr. Frank Cammisa at HSS changed my life. I am pain free which makes my outlook on life much more positive. I now work, golf, garden all without pain. For this I am very grateful.
