Washington police officer Garrett Baxter lived with a bad back for years. He was told to do physical therapy and to avoid surgery at all costs. No matter what he did, the pain would flair up again and again.
Then, on Valentine’s Day, Garrett found he couldn’t even walk.
“I was in pain 24 hours a day… it didn’t matter if I laid down, it didn’t matter if I did my physical therapy exercises, nothing worked,” Garrett remembers. “I knew I needed to do something special. I was scared of surgery, so I looked up minimally invasive surgery, and all the reviews were great for Dr. Kamson and the Spine Institute Northwest.”
After seeing Dr. Solomon Kamson at the Spine Institute Northwest, Garrett describes the result as “one of the best experiences” of his life.
“I didn’t know what to expect on how well I would be after surgery. After the way it’s turned out, I’m better than I’ve been in years. There was an immediate relief from pain.”
Thanks to the surgery, Garrett was able to go back to work as a deputy sheriff. Part of his job involved riding mountain bikes on patrol.
“I would have lost my job if I didn’t have this surgery,” Garrett says.
Today, Garrett’s pain level is a 0, compared to probably a 10. He recommends that you do your research and talk to experts.
“Dr. Kamson is one of the best people I’ve ever met and he truly cares… talk to him, and if you need the surgery, get it.”
