Mike & Jill’s Story

“We had our grandkids and too much life to live. We knew something was out there and we didn’t want to settle. So we kept searching. The day that Mike came home and said he got in touch with North American Spine, it was like ‘hope’. Hope – that we could have a life and just not have any pain.” – Mike’s wife Jill

After 10 years of failed back surgery and doing everything under the sun to treat his back pain, Mike turned to North American Spine to relieve pain from sciatica, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

With a team of experts behind him, Mike underwent an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) and a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) at our Minneapolis location.

“You knew they were always there for you. We’ve never experienced that with physicians, or surgeons, or hospitals, or anything like that before.”

  • Life Before Surgery with North American Spine

    "I experienced so much pain where eventually it got where even standing was hard. I could not stand or walk for very long and sleep was limited."

  • Life After Surgery with North American Spine

    “Since Mike’s surgeries he has had zero nerve pain. We went through for 10 years of failed surgery and doing everything under the sun. North American Spine was a God send. They did major neck surgery first and what they discovered when they got in there was unreal. No other doctor had found out things that had impacted his ability to even swallow. He had his back surgery three weeks after that. It was quite a ride but the day after both surgeries his nerve pain was completely gone. We praise God for that! We are just grateful that Mike can now function and we can lead a normal life together. We are extremely grateful.”

  • Experience with the Patient Care Manager

    “The relationship we had with the patient care manager was absolutely phenomenal. I was just grateful for her. She was really on top of things. She was quick to get back to me when I called and always keeping me apprised of everything I needed to know. ”

  • Experience with the North American Spine Surgeon

    "He told me what was wrong, what he was going to do, and he did it. They did what they said they would do. Dr. Sinicropi's team was incredible."

“I was having surgery in another town, but it was amazing because you knew those people were there for you.”
