Bill tells their story of how the AdventHealth Medical Group Spine Health team helped to diagnose, treat and heal their condition. Read their testimonial to learn more about our approach to helping our patients live pain-free.
With a passion for sports and exercise, Bill enjoyed bicycle racing, running and swimming throughout his life. His passion led him to start competing in triathlons, but after a bicycle accident during a race, Bill suffered a C-2 fracture in his spine. After discussing the risks and benefits of surgical and non-surgical treatment options with Dr. Patel at AdventHealth Medical Group Spine Health, Bill and his family opted for a halo. While the halo afforded Bill the ability to be active, the vertebrae didn’t heal as hoped. With his family’s support, Bill underwent surgery to fuse his vertebrae together, allowing the fracture to heal. After the procedure, Bill was able to get up and walk around, even encouraging his fellow hospital patients to do the same. With Dr. Patel’s help, Bill and his wife are back to their normal exercise routines. Watch Bill’s Story.
