After 5 years of neck pain and having exhausted all medical treatment known to me, I decided to see Dr. Cantor for possible surgical intervention for my constant neck pain. Immediately after surgery, the pain I had experienced for 5 years was gone. The surgical pain was minimal immediately, and relief from the surgical pain was controlled with Tylenol most of the time. In the 5 months since surgery, I have gone from a very sedentary lifestyle due to the neck pain to a very active lifestyle with no pain. And I thank Dr. Cantor for giving me back my pain-free life again.
