Andrea’s Story

“I had pain in my lower back and legs for eight years. There was so much pain that there was no freedom – I was very restricted. I thought that this was going to be my life, at 48 years old, a life of pain. And I decided no, that’s not what I wanted. The Coflex device offered me the flexibility that I really equate to freedom. My doctor recommended the Coflex surgery because he said I was too young to have fusion, and that the Coflex device would give me my mobility as well as the freedom to do things I normally did. Once the surgery was complete, I only stayed at the surgery center for an additional three hours. I was told that my recovery time would be three months, and believe it or not, in the first six weeks, I was up walking miles. My family members, mostly my kids, see me and they see the glow now and they say ‘Mom, this is really working for you!’ The Coflex surgery has changed my life. I am happy, I am functional, I have flexibility, and I give all that thanks to the Coflex device.”


Andrea’s story is like so many others. Check out some videos of our other patients below!

Zach, a general surgeon, tells his story on how the Coflex procedure changed his life.

“I did everything I could non-operatively… non-pharmacologically… stretching… physical therapy – everything that I could think of to do to improve my symptoms.”

“After my surgery I thought it was going to be a long process of recovery, within about 3 days I was up and walking around, within a week or so I was walking around the block a couple of times, within about 3 weeks I was able to walk without any problem whatsoever.”
