Johnny - Spinal Surgery

Johnny presented with a complaint of intermittent painful episodes, initial X-rays revealed no osteoarthritis. An MRI was performed and a prolapsed intervertebral disc was seen between lumbar vertebrae number 7 and his sacrum. This condition is called cauda equina and is the reason for his painful episodes. A dorsal laminectomy was performed over the prolapsed disc space to relieve the pressure off the spinal cord, thus reducing the amount of pain Johnny was experiencing.

Johnny is recovering well and has a long road of recovery ahead.
