My name is Charles. I’m a regional vice president for our property management firm. I’m active with the volleyball team and I also go bicycling. The pain that I experienced when I prior to my surgery was extremely painful. It was a sharp shooting pain down my left leg. Apparently I had ruptured and bulging discs that I had to have surgically removed. Prior to that, it was very difficult to do anything. I couldn’t walk more than 10 feet at a time before having to sit. Then eventually sitting got very difficult. I ended up getting on my search engine Google and I actually Googled five-star surgeons and the Florida Orthopaedic Institute popped up with Dr.
Finally, the day of my surgery, I walked in. It was about four 30 in the morning. Uh, the hospital I went to was Tampa General. The staff there was absolutely amazing. Once I headed back to the room, they gave me the good juice and I don’t even remember leaving pre-op. Once I woke up after surgery, I immediately had the best relief of my life. That pain that I was just in agony for four months over, ended up completely going away. Like it doesn’t, didn’t even exist. There wasn’t, you know, you’re sore afterwards. There was nothing. That nerve pain was just instantly gone. Now that, you know, it’s been a couple of months post-surgery. I’m Playing volleyball again with my volleyball team, doing our volleyball games, I’m able to enjoy life.
I would definitely recommend Florida Orthopaedic Institute to my friends, family, strangers, anybody that has any type of pain or anguish. It’s a five-star rating all the way across the board. You go in, you’re, you’re not just somebody, a number. They know you by name. The staff is extremely friendly. Um, they’re very passionate and very understanding and, and Dr. is very passionate with his craft and what he does and all he wants to see is his patients get better. The way he explains things makes me feel extremely comfortable. I hope to never have to see him and the circumstances again, but I would definitely, definitely just like to thank him from the bottom of my heart because I finally am Charles again. I’m whole again and I have my life back.
