Dwight Howard Had Lumbar Microdiscectomy with Dr. Robert Watkins IV
Dr. Watkins took good care of my back. I had a herniated disc that was causing me a lot of unnecessary suffering so we got rid of it with a procedure that was minimally invasive. I trusted Dr. Watkins with it. Forget about traditional back surgery when you can have this.
It got to the point in which I was not even able to do a single calf-raise. It was like I lost all my strength. It was very bad and painful too. I went to see Dr. Watkins at the Marina Hospital Spine Center and I was told that it was all because of a herniated disc. That meant that I had to undergo surgery which isn’t something that someone would usually consider good news but I looked at the big picture.
My issues were finally in the hands of a specialist and I was ready to go through with anything he suggested if it’d improved my condition. Dr. Watkins performed microdiscectomy on my spine, a minimally invasive procedure that barely leaves any visible marks. He only had to make a few small incisions and in no time the surgery was done.
