Dorothy has had back pain for the past 4 years. Since November of 2017, Dorothy wore a back brace for a year and had multiple shots to try and decrease the pain and increase her mobility. Those treatments did not bring any relief or increased mobility back to Dorothy. After consultation from Twin Cities Spine Center, Dr. Pinto suggested spine surgery. On March 4th, Dorothy had a 7-hour spine surgery at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. Dr. Pinto removed her L2 vertebrae and replaced it with a cage, repaired her nerve channel and fused the T12 through L3 vertebrae. Dorothy was released from the hospital on March 11th to Ebenezer Ridges Transitional Care Center in Burnsville and has been there since that time.
