Carol, an active nurse and nature lover, spent her free time camping, hiking and biking. But as her spinal condition, a painful disease called spondylolisthesis, began to keep her from enjoying her active life, she knew she had to do something about it. As a nurse and researcher, she knew spine surgery was the only permanent option to return to her active life.
After researching options, she sought help from the experts at Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center.
Thanks to the advanced research techniques developed by our top surgeons, Carol was hiking in Iceland a year after her surgery.
