Dave Ball Had Lumbar Microdiscectomy with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

The problems with my back kept nudging at me and I kept trying to find various solutions. After I have consulted with Dr. Robert Watkins, I knew it had to be done. He explained to me the entire process and addressed my issues. I was worried, sure, but their team was the best.

Dave Ball

I was visibly making progress and that mattered a lot to me. Nobody in their right mind enjoys surgery and all that comes with it. One of the first things I asked Dr. Robert Watkins was for him to estimate how long would the recovery last. He took me seriously though. He understood where I was coming from and he said that it would most likely be about four months. I had to trust the process and I am glad that I did.

I have to give credit to the entire staff. They were there to assist me through pretty much any request that I had. I think it is important to be as comfortable as possible in these kinds of situations and I appreciate them greatly for having my back. Literally.
