Bob’s Spinal Revision Surgery Story

Posted on: May 10th, 2022 by Our Team

I came to Dr. Girardi 1 year after a failed L4-L5-S1 fusion. I was terrible pain, and several Orthopedic Surgeons were unwilling or unable to help. Dr. Girardi, after a long consult and film study, performed revision surgery on L5-S1. He removed scar tissue and broken hardware.

It was a 4–5-hour procedure and when I woke up in recovery the terrible nerve pain was gone. One year of 7-10 pain was gone. The 12-week recovery period with restrictions went well as the bone properly hardened/fused.

I have been able to resume playing golf and returning to the gym.

I had been to many Doctors and began to think that I would have to live my life in terrible pain. Dr. Girardi saw the problem and looking me straight in the eye said he could fix it and did.
