Carla, a chronic pain warrior, had suffered from chronic back pain for decades. She underwent 3 spinal fusions and 10 back surgeries total. The pain was still unbearable, forcing her to be bed ridden and live in a retirement community. After a consult with Dr. Spiegel, he decided that the spinal cord stimulator would be viable option for treating her back pain.  Since receiving the implant, Carla says, “I’ve been able to get my life back.” Today, she lives in her own apartment on the second floor, enjoys morning walks with her dog McGraw, and has recently been approved to play golf again. “It’s like my life is back after 10-15 years in bed.”
