Patient: James Turner
Diagnosis: Spinal Stenosis of the Thoracic Spine
Procedure: T1-2 Laminectomy and Fusion
I am James Turner and I am a patient of Dr. Jonathan Gottlieb. I came here about a month and half ago with difficulty walking and numbness from my abdomen down to my toes. I had a slip and fall about three months ago, and did not have a lot of pain in my back or anywhere else but I had trouble walking. I was using a cane and after about a month of treatment, MRIs, and those kind of things, we determined that I needed to have a thoracic decompression laminectomy and I had it on February 24, 2016 at Jackson South and today is March 14, 2016 and I am walking without a cane or walker and pain free. I had a great experience, so I would definitely recommend Dr. Gottlieb to anybody with back issues especially if they require surgery.
