Dave Patten is a 46-year-old who suffered from lower lumbar pain from sitting in a chair all day while working as a programmer for over 30 years.
Before his back surgery, he experienced burning sensations down his legs and crippling spasms.
Dave had a 2-level spine fusion procedure.
Two months after his surgery, Dave feels “better and better” and “stronger and stronger. “ He describes his life now as “happier” – he can do more, take long walks, climb stairs, and perform general day-to-day things he could not do before.
Now he can be more active, be with his children, and not be bedridden all the time.
Of Dr. Kamson he says, “(He) is a great people person, very knowledgeable, and spot-on” in addressing all his concerns about his back procedure.
He recommends that his colleagues with similar back problems get help at Spine Institute Northwest.
