    When I first spoke with my primary care doctor concerning my back pain, I stated I did not want surgery, (I had had two previous successful lumbar fusions with lots of hardware and implants), and was not a pain pill taker, he smiled and said, he knew of a doctor that was "a miracle worker". He was surely right. After reviewing my lumbar and thoracic MRI's, we were able to come up with a plan. I really appreciated the knowledge and care that Dr. Ball showed me throughout my experience with him. I'm a new person thanks to his skill and expertise and I shall forever be grateful to him.

    This procedure was the best and most successful surgery I've ever had. It has basically given me my life back. Pain was such a controlling force in my life prior to this. I was starting to feel a little hopeless. Now I look forward to every day with a new outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Ball and your staff for being there for me.

    I found Dr Ball to be caring, professional & very knowledgable in pain management. After 4 spinal fusions and a SCS revision I am much improved and in less pain. No more pain meds!

    I have been seeing the SW Florida pain management center for the past 2 years related to pain stemming from 2 herniated discs in my lower back. I have had two radio frequency ablations which have changed my life in that I am now able to function normally, play golf and fly fish which is my passion. Prior to seeing Drs. Ball and Valente, I was told my only option was surgery, without any guarantee of a successful outcome. Thanks to you both for enabling me to live my life without the chronic lower back pain I had been experiencing prior to your treatments

    I was very impressed with Dr. Ball and staff. Had back pain for years and did not know where to get the help that I needed. My primary Dr. Sent me to Dr. Ball and after discussions and evaluation we where able to decide on a plan that we both felt would fit. All procedures where fully explained in detail and with each procedure we made significant improvement. It has been approximately one year and I can do everything that I want to do and am so thankful for Dr. Ball, his staff and the procedures that are available today.
