A room in Boone Hospital’s Spine Center.

I was supposed to have my back surgery in February, but I didn’t go through with it when the time got closer. I opted to do more physical therapy, and gave it until the summer to see how I felt.

Needless to say, I am at Boone for my minimally-invasive spine surgery to my L4/L5. Dr. Craig Meyer and his team were patient and understanding. Not once did I feel pressured to make any decisions.

I arrived on Wednesday, Sept. 26th, for my surgery here at Boone Hospital Center. Every doctor, nurse, assistant and secretary was very pleasant and understanding.

On the Spine floor, where I stayed from Wednesday through Friday, the nurses and techs that were assigned to me were the most caring and positive people I’ve ever met in the hospital environment.

They assisted me in any way they could, and would even suggest things if I was not comfortable. They checked on me often, and made me feel welcome.

Thank you, Spine Center, for turning a surgery full of anxiety into a wonderful experience that I will never forget.

I know that if someone I know is needed a surgery, or any care of a hospital, for that matter, I will be recommending them to Boone.
