Breakthrough Spinal Surgery
The producers of KHOU and anchor Shermin-Chow filmed and broadcast the first part of the story of the operation on October 20, 2010 at Humble surgical hospital and promised the viewers they would go back to see if the procedure worked. That first segment was picked up by affliates and broadcast nationally. True to their promise KHOU went back a few weeks later and broadcast the result. The patient was able to walk without a cane and walker, stopped all her meds including pain meds, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxtant and had no pain. And she was able to walk up stairs.
