Dr. Dev Sharma Patient Story - Transcript

I think the back problems started about maybe 4 years back, I talked to Dr. Bellotte because a lot of my friends whom I knew in Pittsburgh they talked very, very high of him as a surgeon.

Many people would think it would be a straightforward problem it’s something we see and treat every day. It’s a small slip of the bones with a herniated disc. However if you took 15 neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons and asked them their approach to this relatively simple problem you will get 15 different answers. So Dr. Sharma wisely searched around and got many opinions about the treatment for his back and settled on his treatment here at UPMC Hamot.

When I woke up after anesthesia I walked to the bathroom with help and the pain I used to have was gone.
