Case Summary | Degenerative Disc Disease
|Condition||Back Lower (Lumbar) Osteoarthritis - Degenerative disc disease|
I had huge back problems for years, up to the point where it left me unable to do anything. After seeing many doctors who all told me I had a compressed disk and told me to go to therapy I finally self diagnosed myseld with degenerative disc disease. I went to Lenox Hill hospital in NYC and met my new doctor. A discography and many other test later my diagnosis was confirmed. I went through a disc replacement surgery where I was implanted with a charite disc and my life has been a million times better since.
