Joe Crede Had Back Surgery with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

Dr. Watkins did a wonderful job. He had to perform surgery on my back which was not exactly something I was looking forward to but he knows what he's doing as I've been told and then had the opportunity to see for myself. I fully encourage anyone to get help from him.

Joe Crede

I went to Dr. Watkins at the Marina Spine Center to figure out what I was going to have to do with my back. It was causing me a lot of pain and I was growing more and more afraid of what kind of damage I was doing to myself by not having it addressed in one way or another. I had a thorough examination with Dr. Watkins and he told me that he needed to operate on my back if I wanted things to get any better.

He said that he would basically have to drain fluid from around two herniated discs in my lower back. I had only heard good things about the practice of Dr. Watkins so there were no issues on that front. I was a bit worried about rehab. I was told I was going to have to be benched for about two months. I had to commit.
