PATIENT TESTIMONIAL:

“When I woke up, I literally jumped from the table. I had no pain. I know that I would be in a wheelchair by now if this procedure didn’t exist,” Loretta said. “My children could hardly believe my outcomes. Sometimes people are leery of undergoing a procedure like this, and I understand that. I’m going to be 84,” Loretta said. “The thing is there’s no recovery. It’s instant. I was back to myself again, only pain-free.”
