I experienced nerve pain in my right lower back and leg for 10 years and tried many temporary approaches to reduce pain from chiropractors, massage and pain management until they no longer helped. I eventually struggled through my daily activities even though I’m athletic, fit and have always been an active person, but the pain made it increasingly difficult to do things that were once easy. When it became hard for me to carry my son following his birth in 2020, I knew I needed surgery, but had to search for the best surgeon for the job.
I went to five consultations which didn’t impress me before finding Dr. Cammisa. After my initial consultation appointment with Dr. Cammisa I instantly knew that he would be the one I wanted to perform my surgery. I was incredibly impressed with Dr. Cammisa’s consultation visit approach and the experience I had in his office was what clearly presented his extensive knowledge and expertise.
Dr. Cammisa was always patient with me during my decision-making period. He always made himself available and happy to address any questions and concerns I had. He would personally call me by phone to discuss my concerns, which made me feel comfortable since we both agreed this was a serious procedure.
Throughout the entire process Dr. Cammisa was extremely meticulous, thorough, and I appreciated his attention to detail. My surgery was a year ago in the summer of 2022 and it truly feels like my life has been renewed… I feel like I am 25 years old again! I am now able to walk, jog, bike and swim as much as I want, carry my son and workout at the gym without any pain or restrictions, which has been amazing.
If anyone is experiencing the severe nerve root stenosis pain I was and considering surgery, I can assure you Dr. Frank Cammisa Jr. can help and it’s going to be worth getting your life back to that comfort zone.
