My Story:
Born with congenital central canal stenosis. Disc herniations began at age 17. Three disc herniations and four failed surgeries forced me into retirement at age 51. Osteophytes, osteoarthritis, advanced fibrosis, collapsed vertebra, bone damage, multiple areas of radiculopathy, nerve root impingement and nerve necrosis. Participated in two comprehensive pain management programs. Conduct research into alternative treatments, including molecular pharmacology and interventional techniques in the management of chronic spinal pain.
