After a bicycling injury, I experienced crippling pain down my right leg that was diagnosed as lumbar stenosis. Steroid injections and physical therapy provided some relief, but even small back strains would send me back to walking with my upper body tilted to the left to avoid the leg pain. I investigated surgery after a year. Dr. Haroun was recommended by the physician who performed the spinal injections. I found Dr. Haroun to be extremely thorough in his investigation of the problem and more conservative in his surgical recommendations than another surgeon I met. Finally, two years after the injury, I underwent microdecompression surgery by Dr. Haroun. The improvement was immediate and dramatic. I can walk upright again without pain and am looking forward to resuming my normal active life.
