Sophie came to BVNS Richmond after experiencing weakness in all four limbs and persistent cervical pain. Dr. Higginbotham performed an MRI which revealed two separate disk herniations. Sophie underwent ventral slot surgery in order to remove compressive material from each side of the spinal cord.
The surgery was a success and Sophie is looking great! She continues to improve every time we see her and remains very comfortable. We look forward to more positive updates on Sophie in the future!
