Source— FirstHealth of the Carolinas Published January 13, 2021

After dealing with pain for some time, Pinehurst, N.C. resident James Matthews said he “had pain in my back for so long that I just learned to live with discomfort.” An article from FirstHealth of the Carolinas details his “lower back pain due to spinal stenosis” with “some bouts of discomfort … bad enough that it also hindered his ability to care for his wife.”

The story highlights how Matthews finally found Dr. Lauren Sylvester, and a procedure he calls his “game changer.”

“Luckily for Matthews, a mild® Procedure performed by FirstHealth’s Lauren Sylvester, M.D., has allowed him to get back to the things he loves. Dr. Sylvester said Matthews was an ‘excellent candidate’ for the minimally invasive lumbar decompression procedure.”

Today, Matthews says “Now, I’m not in nearly as much pain, I’m able to help my wife with all her needs and I can enjoy retirement.”
