    Comments: “Am I ready for surgery? Am I too young for surgery? How much will my range of motion be affected by surgery?

    Having surgery is a major decision and doubts will arise in your mind no matter how prepared you think you are.

    I am a 40 year old active mom of a preschooler and can’t afford for the daily wheels of life to stop turning. However life as I knew it consisted of constant pain, daily headaches and numbness down my right arm.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Badlani’s for several years. From the moment you meet Dr. Badlani and his assistant Cheryl, you become aware that their primary goal is to significantly improve your daily life in the least invasive way possible.

    As much as I wanted to deny the reality, the years of physical therapy, steroid injections and pain medications were no longer successful and Dr. Badlani and I decided ACDF (Anterior Cervical Disc Fusion) was the solution.

    I went into surgery on a Wednesday afternoon and by the time I was out of recovery my numbness was completely gone and the pain in my neck was significantly reduced.

    Within 2 weeks of surgery I was back to my normal daily life, yet mindful of anything too strenuous.

    One month post-op, I am beyond amazed and ecstatic that my life no longer consists of numbness, headaches and pain. My mobility and range of motion has significantly improved after surgery.

    I’ve gone from 50% to 100% and am able to go toe to toe with my son’s boundless amounts of exuberance each day.

    I highly recommend and implicitly trust Dr. Badlani in treating any and all of your back and neck needs.
