This is Angel- He came to see us at BVNS Atlanta in September for being acutely paralyzed in the back end. Dr. Akin performed a neurologic exam and suspected disc disease. An MRI was performed and confirmed a disc herniation at T13-L1 causing mild-moderate spinal cord compression.
A right sided T13-L1 hemilaminectomy was performed and Angel went home two days later. This is Angel pictured at his six-week post-operative exam appointment. He is back to his happy energetic self and has been showing much improvement since his surgery! He has been working hard at rehabilitation and swimming and continues to use his back legs more each day. Today Angel is pain free and getting back to his normal life with his family!
