June of 2014 I had posterior cervical fusion surgery (C3-T3) by Dr. Patrick O'Leary due to severe arthritis in my joints. While it was a challenging recovery, and I have limited range of motion, it has helped lessen the severe pain. I'm very grateful to Dr. O'Leary and everyone at HSS. I turned 60 last August and once again, I received a gift to go on. Life is good!
