Spinal Fusion | Richard Shetter's Story
U.S. Army veteran Richard Shetter has conquered many obstacles, but nothing took him out of commission the way his back pain did. After living with the pain for many years and not having any positive results from prior care, Rick sought a second opinion from the Johns Hopkins orthopaedic spine division. Soon after seeing orthopaedic spine surgeon Brian Neuman, Rick decided to undergo a spinal fusion surgery, leading him to be absolutely pain-free. Now, Rick is back enjoying his active lifestyle in York, Pennsylvania, with his two dogs and his wife, Abbey.
