At the age of 82, I felt so fortunate to be able to enjoy my Golden Years, especially my garden and crabbing and clamming on Barnegat Bay. Suddenly I started experiencing low back pain and severe pain in my lower body, legs and feet. I saw two orthopedic doctors and also a pain management physician. An MRI showed a fractured vertebrae and degenerated lower back were causing my spinal stenosis. My pain was devastating. I was no longer able to take care of myself. Both physicians said I was not a good candidate for surgery (because of my age) and could not operate on me. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.
My family had heard of Dr. Antonacci. After viewing his website we immediately made an appointment. When I met with Dr. Antonacci and told him of my situation, he said “Yes, I can fix your problems.” He gave me hope! I looked at him and said, “I’m ready.”
It is 3 months since my surgery and I am pain free. I am so grateful to Dr. Antonacci. He gave me my life back. Words cannot convey what I feel. Thank You from the bottom of my heart. God Bless you.
My thanks to Joel for his help and patience with our phone calls and his encouragement through this experience. Also my thanks to Christine and the Office Staff. Their expertise made the whole process go so smoothly.
