One Patient’s Story...
When Rita Swaye began to experience lower back pain in 2005, she explored a variety of treatment options to manage the pain.
“I tried everything from injections to radiofrequency lesioning, but nothing helped,” says Rita. “The pain I was experiencing was tremendous and kept me from enjoying life.”
Finally, she decided to undergo surgery at North Fulton Hospital in 2008. From her first consultation to discharge, Rita was very pleased with her experience.“
Everyone I met was so helpful and caring, especially the surgeons,” says Rita. “I was impressed by the private recovery rooms and how spotless everything was. The staff and environment immediately made me feel more at ease—it was like I was at home.
