I suffered with back pain that literally was ""killing me"" with every step I took. I was confident that Dr. Francis and his staff could make things better for me. I decided to do the surgery and my husband and I both believe that this was the best decision I've ever made. Dr. Francis and his staff attended to my every need with compassion and skill. The surgery was a success. Now, I can walk again, live my life and continue doing the things that I have not been able to do in a long time. Thank you Dr. Francis. Words fall short of my thanks.
