Susan’s Spinal Fusion at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center: Susan Robinson shares her incredible journey from chronic spine pain to a seamless and effective surgery to a full recovery 10 days later. Dr. Alexandros D. Powers, MD, performed Susan's Spinal Fusion at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center.
Before back pain, Susan was always active—hiking, skiing or playing tennis. But the pain got so bad, it forced her to walk hunched over—for five years. She tried cortisone shots, acupuncture and physical therapy, but nothing worked for long. A friend referred Susan to MedStar Montgomery , where they performed a spinal fusion that immediately relieved her pain. Today, she’s standing tall and looking forward to restarting her active life. With a focus on all areas of health care, MedStar Montgomery has the skillful, caring specialists to help you through it all.
