Robin sent her MRI, and like all persons interested in The Bonati Spine Procedures, received a free MRI review by a surgeon. They drove to Hudson and found that “… everybody was really awesome. They’re professional but they’re friendly. Dr. Bonati looked at my MRI and then touched me on the leg and pointed out exactly where the pain was and where it was going.”
Dr. Bonati informed her that he would first operate on the area that was causing the most pain and that was all it took. The Bonati Spine Institute performs its surgeries incrementally, one level at a time, to avoid performing any unnecessary surgeries. One hour after surgery Robin stood up, felt greater strength in her legs and walked to her car. Her friends joked that she grew two inches because prior to surgery she would lean two inches lower, being unable to stand up straight.
Robin says that she is “walking proof that it works. I’m free of pain. I can walk. I can bend over. A lot of people from this area have gone down there. It’s like a network of friends.” Matt and Robin were able then to enjoy one of their favorite activities, attending University of West Virginia footballs games in Morgantown. Matt adds that he’s “… rarin’ to go so (he) can be pain free.”
In discussing the case Dr. Bonati added that “… the pathology of patients that we see is very diverse. Some are simple problems, some are complicated. Yet, we have such experience that we can usually correct the problems of patients that come to see us.”
