By the time Alfred Gatti came to the Spine Institute Northwest, he remembers, “I wasn’t able to go walking or anything like that.” By the end of each day, the burning pain he felt in his feet became so unbearable, “it got to the point where it felt like somebody was using a blowtorch on it.”
Following lumbar region decompression through a minimally invasive procedure at the Spine Institute Northwest, Al says, “there’s good days, there’s bad days,” but “the burning is virtually all gone.” In fact, within a few weeks of the surgery Al was not just more comfortable, “I went for a half a mile walk!” he says.
Al’s pain has substantially diminished since his procedure, and his quality of life has been able to return. “Some days,” he says, “I don’t even take the pain pill.”
He credits the doctors and staff of the Spine Institute Northwest, paying them the highest compliment. When asked if he would recommend Dr. Solomon Kamson and the Spine Institute Northwest to anybody else, Al laughs. “I have already! To about ten different people.”
