My brother suffered from leg pain due to the compression of nerves passing through legs by the outwarded part of spinal bone. He suffered from hilarious pain....which was unbearable. We were completely helpless....it was impossible for us to see his suffering. For treatment we consulted doctor Pallav Bhatia and he suggested a spinal surgery. The surgery was planned and it was absolutely successful. My brother was absolutely cured....he was able to walk the very next day and he was completely cured and there was no pain his leg after the surgery. It's been 4 months....he is able to do all normal activities and is absolutely fine.
