Valerie M.

I had disc bulging at L3-4 and more severe at L4-5 with moderate disc degeneration. I had a L4-5 microdisectomy and felt significant relief of my back pain at this level and leg pain. Unfortunately, I still have a herniation at L3-4 that isn't to the point of needing surgery. Disc degeneration that would require a fusion and given I am only 36, a fusion is something I want to avoid. Dr. DuBois was excellent and the L4-5 microdiscectomy made it possible to play with my twin girls again. If further surgery is needed at some point, I would definitely go back to see Dr. DuBois.
