I was having increased low back pain and difficulty with my legs, causing balance and gait problems. I had been to two other orthopedic surgeons, who stated the required surgery would mean possibly 3-6 months out of work.
I was referred to Dr. Jeffrey Carlson, who, after several rounds of x-rays, determined I had a problem that was missed by the other surgeons. The required surgery was a lumbar 3 to 4 fusion, completed as an outpatient.
My recovery has been quick, and I am pain free in my lower back, and, with the help of physical therapy, increasing mobility and strength returning to my legs. I would highly recommend Dr. Carlson for orthopedic spinal concerns.
