Dr. McNulty saved Dan's life! Dan spent 3 years in unruly pain, after 2 spinal fusion surgeries in Roanoke, VA. His life ruined, out of work and mostly bed ridden from the barbed wire like pain in his lower back. His Virginia doctor referred him to different pain Drs. who tried many procedures, and obviously, including opoides; which proved to be awful; and Dan refused them. Do we wonder why there is an epidemic! Dan could not ride in a car, walking was difficult and everyday activities ended. The surgeon left him in more pain than what he experienced before the surgery, crippling him. What kind of a doctor would walk away from this?
We met with Dr. McNulty, and he understood exactly what was happening in Dan's back; saying he had MacGyver like skills to remove the painful hardware... 6 screws and 2 rods. Dan could not wait for the removal! The Virginia doctor didn't even give Dr. McNulty the proper tool information before surgery.Therefore, Dr. McNulty had to use his MacGyver like skills to remove the hardware, it worked! Dan is now improving every day, he is 3 mo. past surgery. The large screws were irritating the soft tissue causing the crippling pain. As I understand it, some doctors just don't know how to do this hardware removal surgery.They may not want to admit failure...which is, seemingly a common problem we have now read about. McNulty has so many strong credentials when I read about him; I couldn't dial the phone fast enough. Dan travelled here to NV for Dr. McNulty's care. Dr. McNulty's staff quickly scheduled the surgery, and Dr. McNulty used his skills to bring Dan back to life! Dan had almost given up; then following surgery, while still in the hospital....it was already obvious Dan experienced noticeable improvement . We expect continued improvement as he continues PT. He can ride in a car now, he can sit at the dinner table, already.HOORAY! Dr McNulty is my hero! I have him to thank for relieving my son, Dan, of miserable unnecessary pain! He is an awesome doctor and continues to care for Dan with excellent advice and care. Obviously, Dr. McNulty's compassion to help his patients, while using his talented skills is outstanding! Run, don't walk to see Dr. McNulty!!!
