“Quite a few times, I’d go outside to play with my kids, and if I took a wrong step, I’d be on the ground, not able to get up. Dr. Gordon was like ‘I can fix you. I can fix it.’ He didn’t even hesitate about it. […] Dr. Gordon did amazing.”
Dr. Gordon describes how the minimally-invasive OLIF25™ procedure provides a faster recovery with less post-operative pain for patients – patients just like Steve Schwartzer.
“It got to a point where I physically couldn’t turn and it just continued on and the pain was intensifying. It was hard to walk; it was hard to sit – I just had to say, ‘This is not going to work. I gotta find something that will cure it.’ And that is when I found Dr. Gordon.”
“When I came out of surgery, I reached down to my left leg and I looked at Deb. I said, ‘There’s no pain. This feels great!” And it did. You know for it being less than 24 hours out of surgery. And to be straight and to walk without any pain? I’m telling you what, I still can’t describe it.”
“Dr. Gordon, he did the surgery and the pain is gone. And I can walk. I’m really glad I had that surgery. It gave me the ability to really get my life back to where it was before. You don’t realize until you have difficulties what mobility is.”
