It started with shoulder pain, that I could not put my finger on, in April. A cortisone shot in shoulder, no relief. An MRI of my shoulder showed nothing, then the pain disappeared but I could not lift my left arm. Four weeks of physical therapy, was no help. Then, an MRI of my neck showed bulging discs in my neck and I was told only surgery could fix the problem.
I researched for the best spine surgeon and found Dr. Jeffrey Carlson. I had cervical diskectomy on C-4 thru C-7, in August 2021 and have followed his direction and Physical Therapy. I am gaining strength in my arm daily and could not be happier with the results. The experience with Dr. Carlson and his staff was very good and would recommend them completely. I Never had pain after surgery, just a mighty sore throat.
