This note is in continuing appreciation of Dr. Mark Camel’s skills (communication, bedside and surgical). He completely resolved acute, incapacitating pain with a very successful microdiscectomy. He and his team at the surgery center – and all of the team at ONS were extraordinary. From diagnoses, to exploring options, second opinions, the surgery and the recovery were highly professional, suitably quick and a good as new result. Thank you.

I just had to check in with you all…I am doing so well! I have truly not felt this well in as long as I can remember. Having the spinal fusion surgery has changed my life in so many ways. I have lost 50 pounds since my surgery and resuming normal activity. I have ZERO pain whatsoever. I haven’t even had so much as a headache since my surgery in July. I feel about 10-15 years younger, minimally. I can never thank Dr. Camel, physical therapist Fey and all of the associates at ONS who helped me to return to a “better than normal” state of health and well-being. I know you guys do this every day; but to me, this was a once-in-a-lifetime “event” that has permanently changed my life for the better in myriad ways. THANK YOU ALL, once again! – CM (Spinal Fusion)
