My son suffered back pain for 3 years to many orthopaedics and spine specialists that all said the same thing... "you have to stretch, you're too young for surgery, you'll be fine." At 16 The Lord led us to find Dr. Blanco who told us surgery is a no brainer. Right after his 17th birthday, he had L5S1 fusion. Dr. Cunningham also performed surgery with Dr. Blanco. We couldn't be happier with the outcome! Both Doctors have amazing staff! Lisa at Dr. Blanco's office helped us many times. Also Dr. Cunningham's staff Tina, Brenda and Mickey are all awesome at what they do and can answer questions before they are asked!
