Testimonial: Surgery Gets Claudiu Back On His Feet

Claudiu D. Taking Dog For A Walk After Spine Surgery with VA Neurosurgeons

Before my surgery with Dr. Chandela my life was miserable, absolutely miserable. I had a pain in my right leg which stretched from from the base of my spine all the way down to the toes. The only way I can describe it was that it felt like someone was constantly trying to break my bones. The pain grew progressively worse over several months and before I knew it, I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t play sports, I couldn’t walk the dog, travel, work or do anything that required me to get out of bed. It was an absolute nightmare and one of the lowest times of my life. One day, when the pain got particularly bad, I went to the emergency room where the physician referred me to Dr. Chandela and his office. I knew Dr. Chandela from a previous procedure and I very much trusted him and his abilities.

Though I’m still on the road to recovery, I can say with absolute certainty that I have my life back. Now that the surgery is complete I can walk, work, travel and get back into the activities I love and enjoy. I’m very optimistic and confident that in a couple months I’ll be back to 100% and for that I’m incredibly grateful.

There are hundreds of thousands of surgeons in the U.S. who I could have gone to for this procedure, but Dr. Chandela offers something unique. On a scale from 1 to 100, he is 150 and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to someone else who’s suffering from back or spinal pain. Dr. Chandela is a professional, he doesn’t treat you like a disabled person but works with you to find solutions to your particular problem. On top of this he exhibits a tremendous amount of confidence, which transferred to me as a patient and gave me hope for a successful operation. But more more importantly than all of that is the fact that he gets the job done. Dr. Chandela gave my life back to me and I’m incredibly grateful for him and his work.
