Patient Stories

Steven S. Hughes, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I have resumed virtually all of my past physical activities! On March 27th, 2017 I had a spinal fusion (L1 to L4) and a laminectomy. I resumed my organized swimming activities 4 weeks after my procedure. Also, I started going to physical therapy 5 weeks after my procedure.

At 11 weeks post-procedure; I am about 75% of my previous physical condition; and at 11 weeks post procedure I have NO pain or swelling.

I would recommend Dr. Hughes to patients that are having pain or limited physical activity (motor such as legs, arms, etc.) and want to regain 100%+ use of their limbs.

The fusion and laminectomy is working quite well for me. And I am expecting a 100% total recovery in mobility, flexibility, strength, and endurance over the next 9-18 months!

Thank you very much, Dr. Hughes and team (Meghan, Heather, Carol, Eschery, etc.)
