About two months ago I was in a bad car accident. I was sitting at a stop light when all of sudden the car behind me slammed me into oncoming traffic. My vehicle was hit by another car in the middle of the road, and my car rolled over three times. I had to have lost consciousness for a while because when I came to, there was someone outside my window telling me help was on the way. I laid there because I was not sure if I was able to move. Soon enough, I heard the sirens, and they got me out of the vehicle.
When they got me out, they asked me if anything hurt. I told them that I didn’t think I could feel my back or my neck. They informed me not to move because there could be an injury to my spine. I laid still, and they put me on the stretcher and rushed me off to the hospital on google.com. When I got there, I was still in a lot of pain, so they gave me some medicine. When they ran tests, they told me that I would need surgery right away because there was a part of my spine that was almost puncturing through the spinal canal. I told them I couldn’t have a full on surgery; I had to go home and take care of my kids. They told me about another option.
When they were explaining the other option, I was immediately on board. They said there was a place called the Nobilis Health Northstar Healthcare Surgery Center in Dallas, which was very close by. They could call them up to see if they had a surgeon available to do the surgery today. Luckily for me, they did have a surgeon available.
The difference between the surgery at the hospital I was rushed to and the Nobilis Health center is that Nobilis Health performs minimally invasive procedures. The hospital I was at told the Nobilis Health staff about my situation, and Nobilis Health assured them that they could do my surgery through with a minimally invasive approach, so I was sent over to Nobilis Health on stockhouse. The procedure was done in about five hours. I still had to stay overnight, just because of the accident, but the procedure went smoothly.
I was able to go home to my kids the next morning, and I thank some higher power that, that was the only damage, besides some bruising caused by the accident. I took it easy like they told me to for the next few weeks. About one month after my surgery, I was feeling pretty great. I was lucky that the car accident didn’t destroy my life. Since the surgery was a success, I can still spend time with my kids, and I can still live a normal life. I am so thankful for the Nobilis Health Center and their minimally invasive procedure because it allowed me to quickly go back to my regular life.
