    "I had always had some occasional pain in my back. However, one year ago in June, I began having numbness in my legs. My pain intensified and by December, I couldn't walk without the help of a walker. I consulted several different orthopedic physicians, but selected Dr. Orndorff because he and his staff treated me like family. Since having surgery at Mercy, I have signed up at a local fitness center and am walking up to four miles a day. It feels like a miracle!"

    "Before my surgery I could hardly walk across the street or hold my grandson. My pain was 24-7. Since my surgery, I'm back to working full time, enjoying golf and racquetball, and I hope to return to skiing this season. I'm pain free for the first time in many years. The Mercy Spine Center of Excellence couldn't have been better; the staff was fabulous, professional, and did their job well from start to finish."
