Bodybuilder and sales expert S.B. from England was successfully operated in Vertebris International Spine Hospital on 7th March 2012.
Mr. S.B. firstly contacted us on 7th February describing his low-back problem (prolapsed disc) affecting his right leg. Calcified disc herniation can clearly be seen on MRI images:

Patient’s symptoms included minor low-back pain, but main problem was right buttock pain and a painful lower limb outside calf area. His symptoms were 100% concordant to the MRI and transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery (discectomy) is indicated.
On 7th March 2012, dr. Robert Saftic performed aware state selective endoscopic discectomy. Immediately after surgery, patient was pain free. Next day at the consultation, when asked “What percentage of pain relief do you feel?“, patient replied “100%“.
Nobody happier then us.
