Immediately following the surgery the pain I had suffered with before my surgery was GONE. I was hospitalized for one week and after recuperating at home for another week I was able to return to work part-time. I am able to do things that I haven’t been able to do for a long time. I still have some occasional achiness but the chronic pain is gone. I am now walking miles which I was not even able to walk for 10 minutes before my surgery. I have one regret and that is that I didn’t contact ZimSpine from the beginning. I finally got my wish to be pain free and I have this team to thank for it. I would highly recommend to anyone suffering with back pain to visit ZimSpine... it’s the place to go.
