My very active & fir 88yr old mother has had SEVERE leg/hip pain for 6 months now. She is now confined to a wheelchair due to the pain every time she stands. NOTHING has worked. I feel like the docs are dismissing her due to age. Finally found a doc that suggested surgery. Hello? So hopefully get some relief for her soon. Anyone out there have any negative/positive experiences with minimal evasive microdectomy surgery??
