Standing Without Spinal Surgery
"After my consultation with Dr. Fortin, I was so at ease with his knowledge and expertise"
I came to STAR because of severe pain that made it so I could hardly stand up. An MRI showed I had a compound fracture to my L3, so my son located several doctors who could treat my pain without spinal surgery. After my consultation with Dr. Fortin, I was so at ease with his knowledge and expertise that I ended up canceling my consultation with the other doctor since I felt I didn’t need a second opinion. Within a week of my appointment I was able to come back in for a kyphoplasty and have my fracture repaired with bone cement. By the time I was in recovery the bone cement already hardened, and I felt immediate relief and had no difficulties standing afterwards.
