My name is Jackie. I am a very active 73 year old and have been golfing for most of my life. I began suffering with leg and back pain in 2013. It worsened to the point I had no quality of life. Dr. Traina diagnosed my condition as severe spinal stenosis. He performed surgery on my back on May 4, 2016. The type of surgery I had was an Interlaminar Lumbar Instrumented Fusion. I went into this surgery with much hope and no fear because of Dr. Traina’s expertise, confidence, and kindness. He and his staff were excellent! The afternoon following the surgery, I was up and walking with a back brace. My leg and back pain were gone! From May 4, 2016 to now, January 23, 2017 I have not experienced leg or back pain. I recently had my follow-up visit with Dr. Traina. After reviewing my recent cat scan, he told me he had three words for me. “Go Play Golf!” Dr. Traina gave me my life back! For this, I will always be thankful to him and his great staff!
