When Spokane resident Margo Witters found the Spine Institute Northwest, her intractable back pain was so intense that she could no longer get around on her own. Despite being just in her 60s, “I was to the point where I had to use a walker. Lots of times I was in a wheelchair,” she remembers. Calling the Spine Institute Northwest was Margo’s first step to being able to once again stand on her own two feet.
“Dr. Kamson got right on top of it,” Margo recalls. “You come in [to the Spine Institute Northwest] and you know that they want to help you, and they make you feel glad that you came. And you just have a sense of peace of knowing that you’re going to get help that you need.” Margo underwent a minimally invasive lumbar fusion procedure. She remembers that she felt “really good” even right after her surgery. She and her husband returned to Spokane the next day, taking a photo with Dr. Kamson before they got on the road.
Coming back a year after her minimally invasive spine surgery, “it’s a fun visit this time,” Margo says. She’s regained her mobility and her independence. “I just feel amazing now, I’m able to do things I haven’t done for four or five years.” It’s a world of difference from when Margo first came through our doors.
Constant back or neck pain can be truly insidious, robbing you bit by bit of the everyday things you have to do (like sitting behind a desk or picking up groceries) and the things you want to do (like playing with your grandkids or hitting the back nine). Don’t let pain hold you back from living the life that you want. Get started by calling the Spine Institute Northwest today at 425-486-1000 to set up a consultation with one of our specialists.
