Susan’s Lumbar Fusion with Bone Graft Story
When I first saw Dr. Federico Girardi, I was suffering from complete left foot drop and excruciating sciatica. I had a severe herniated disc and scoliosis. Fortunately, I was seen and evaluated by Dr. Girardi. He clearly explained the issues I had and the need to fix my problems. Dr. Girardi arranged to schedule an emergency surgery for me. Dr. Girardi’s calm and compassionate demeanor helped me through my pre-operative and post-operative experience. His expertise and skill as a spine surgeon helped to immediately heal my pain and foot drop. The surgery he performed was a lumbar fusion with bone graft. Dr. Girardi always made sure that I was taken care of before, during and after my surgery. He truly cares about his patients. I have healed very well with Dr. Girardi’s guidance and support. I am so very grateful that Dr. Girardi performed my surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Girardi to anyone who needs a spine surgeon. His knowledge and surgical expertise is of the highest level. Dr. Girardi is an amazing surgeon and person of great integrity. In addition, his team is helpful and very supportive.
