After attempting multiple conservative treatments including injections and physical therapy, Sherrill turned to North American Spine to relieve pain from Degenerative Disc Disease.
Sherrill underwent the Lumbar Intellispine procedure at our Houston location to help relieve her spine pain.
“Don’t put it off. The entire staff is supportive, kind, patient, and the recovery is easy. This was by the far one of the best health care experiences I have had.”
Life Before Surgery with North American Spine
"My quality of life was poor. I was in constant pain everybody. I didn't sleep well, I couldn't play with my kids or do fun activities like skating, basketball, hiking. I was always in pain and grouchy. I couldn't work out and had gained a lot of weight from the steroids. I was depressed. I couldn't sit, stand, or walk for long periods without being in pain."
Life After Surgery with North American Spine
“I can sleep through the night and wake up without pain. I am more productive at work because I'm not in pain. I can exercise again, but most importantly I'm having fun and enjoying life and creating memories with my husband and kids.”
Experience with the Patient Care Manager
Catherine M, my patient care manager was attentive. She helped me to work through some financial issues that would have delayed my procedure. She consistently followed up and kept me in the loop on what was going on during the insurance review process and scheduling.
Experience with the North American Spine Surgeon
“The doctor's bed-side manner was excellent. He was very calming, explained the entire procedure, what I should expect and how I would feel after the procedure.”
