"Six weeks ago, I underwent lower back surgery. I was having pain and numbness in my lower back that was running down my left leg. Dr. Pasia of Orthopedic Associates performed the surgery. By the end of the first day, I was up walking short distances with a walker. The second day, I was walking on my own. After a short recovery in Port Huron Hospital, I was released to go home. Recovery has been very positive and moving forward. It was a very positive experience from the start to the point I'm at. My goal is to return to work, as it has been from the start and I'm well on the way." -- Randy M.
