Orland’s Laminectomy Story
I started with a pain in my right leg in October of 2016. I was treated with pain medication (Gabapentin), followed with physical therapy and four epidural shots in my spine without good results. I got in touch with Dr. Federico Girardi, through Dr. Jonas Sanguineti (Argentina) in May 2021. My surgery was performed by Dr. Girardi at HSS in July of 2021 during the COVID lockdown. My hospital stay consisted of only 2 days. After the surgery, I have received physical therapy and I have had a great recovery. I am 71 years old and back to my complete activities.
