Lumbar Decompression and Fusion: AQ’s Story

R.Y. - Testimonial - (Lowback and Leg Pain)

What a lucky day it was for me to meet Dr. Mark R. McLaughlin. I had been in pain from my back and legs for almost three years, and after exhausting many avenues in trying to alleviate this pain, I found this wonderful doctor. In May, Dr. McLaughlin performed a fusion and decompression on my spine and back. The intense leg pains I was suffering from disappeared almost immediately post surgery, and the tremendous improvement in my back has made my life livable again.

I must comment that not only is Mark McLaughlin a skilled surgeon, but a truly gentle man filled with warmth, kindness, understanding and compassion. RY

AQ - Testimonial

Dear Dr. McLaughlin,

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me my life back. When I came to you that first day, I had almost decided to give up, the pain was so horrible. I did not want to live like that any longer. You gave me hope. Now the pain is gone and I am free. I truly believe God has blessed your brain, your heart, and your hands. I pray you will continue to heal other people as you did me. I am a very happy and thankful lady.

Bless you always,
