Patient Stories

Tushar Ch. Patel, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can... Live my life to the fullest!

After years of chronic back pain, which had increased substantially in the past year to the point of near debilitation, not being able to stand or sit for any length without pain, and sleep was broken at best. While surgery was the final outcome, Dr. Patel tried conservative approaches, including Physical Therapy and epidural injections, before making that final decision. Surgery brought me immediate relief, and now 2 months later I've returned to work & about to return to my hobbies of being a volunteer Paramedic and playing hockey with no restrictions. This has truly been life-changing, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
