Peyton Manning Had Cervical Microdiscectomy with Dr. Robert Watkins IV
I was so happy the surgery went well. I was burned once with a herniated disc removal and I did not want that to happen again. To make sure things were going to go just fine I went to the best surgeon I had heard of, Dr. Robert Watkins of Marina Hospital.
Dr. Watkins performed surgery on the lower part of my neck. The issue was a herniated disc. I was not happy to hear about a herniated disc problem since I have had a bad experience with such a thing in the past. I had to have surgery for it then too and it was not successful. It left me with some bitter feelings toward medical professionals, I’ll say that.
But then I met Dr. Robert Watkins and he is a wonderful person and an incredible surgeon. He fixed my herniated disc with no problems. He had to insert a bone graft and then he had to fuse the neck vertebrae. The surgery was quick but the recovery was quite a long process. We talked about it prior to the intervention and he warned me that my specific case might require a longer period of rehabilitation.
