Testimonial – Rebecca Walser – Microdiscectomy for Severe Sciatica

Rebecca Walser suffered from severe sciatica and a herniated disc so she underwent a microdiscectomy, a minimally invasive back surgery. This is her story.

REBECCA'S STORY: Rebecca Walser, 40, is an active mother of 4 and a large animal veterinarian who suffered from an excruciatingly painful herniated disc at the L5/S1 level of her back. The herniation caused her severe sciatica pain in her right lower back and buttocks and the pain radiates down her leg, calf and foot. Rebecca underwent a L5-S1 microdiscectomy and her back pain was immediately gone following surgery.
