“I am a RN and work in a state prison. After 37 years of nursing, I had never so much as even strained my back and then I slip at work and hurt my back. It took a few months, but I finally got in to see Dr. Grossman. Even though it had been 5 months since my accident, I still hadn't had a MRI. Dr. Grossman ordered one immediately and when he saw it, he said I needed surgery. I said something like back surgeries don't do well, having seen many patients who had to have them redone. He responded that in cases like mine, where there was a specific area that needed surgery, they do very well.  I decided to try and be the good employee and was going to wait until I couldn't stand the pain any more. Long story short, I discovered that my Workers Comp had a deadline for me to have a surgical procedure and return to work. I went back to Dr. Grossman, had another MRI, and had surgery in April of 2009. I woke up in recovery room and my leg pain was completely gone! He later told me the surgery went perfectly! Today, 4 years later, I am still without the symptoms that plagued me after my fall. To say I am grateful is an understatement.  I will always be very grateful to Dr. Grossman for giving me back my life.  I have had surgery by other Southern California Orthopedic Institute physicians and refer all of my friends to Southern California Orthopedic Institute.”
