I had back pain for over 20 years. In 2017, after a second injury, it became debilitating at times. I was very nervous about surgery, but had exhausted all other options. Dr. Thambuswamy listened to my concerns, reassured me (but wasn’t pushy), and performed my fusion in October 2019. My pain is 100% gone! No more tensing up when I sneeze, no more lifting my behind off of the car seat before I drive over a bump, I can bend over and stand up without pulling myself up on the nearest object, I have no pain from sleeping on my back, etc. I could go on and on. I cannot recommend him enough. I will be forever grateful. I finally have my life back!
