"I lived in nearly constant pain for more than 20 years. I couldn’t imagine life without back pain. When the team at the Gundersen Lutheran Spine Clinic told me they could help, I was elated.
My doctor replaced two discs in my back during a surgery called disc arthroplasty that only a few places in the country are doing. I was amazed the technology was available here in La Crosse.
What impressed me as much as the technology at Gundersen Lutheran was the level of care and concern everyone showed for me. They saw my pain, got to know me as a person and did everything they could to help me.
Before I went into surgery, my husband said, ‘Your life is going to change today.’ He was right. My back pain is gone. Gundersen Lutheran gave me my life back."
