Pros.. less back pain immediately!
Cons.. Bruising, pain, not being able to squeeze my adorable 4 year old son.
I had the surgery because of the significant back pain, the shoulder and neck cramps, headaches, bruising on shoulders, strap indentations, the inability to wear low cut shirts without having people stare, not being able to sleep in certain positions.
During my first consultation, the doctor took measurements and the nurse took pictures. He explained the risks of the surgery and what I could expect from the healing process. I have called him after hours two times, (one because of bleeding and the other because of all over body itch) and he has responded promptly.
His staff is wonderful as well. The RN even gave me her cell phone number in case I had any questions the night before the surgery. The anesthesiologist also called the night before the surgery to give me instructions.

I am actually relieved that the ER doctor said it was infected and put me on antibiotics so that this swelling and tenderness will start to go. It is disappointing when you know that there is something wrong and the doctor wants you to wait it out and see what happens!!

Dr. Paletta has excellent bedside manner. Alicia, Dr. Paletta's scheduler did an excellent job in getting me on the surgery schedule within 2 weeks of me deciding that I did want to have the surgery.
