“You can’t just see a surgeon in the VA, you have to work through the system. I was addicted to prescription pain-killers. Gaps in refills were like detox. Operation Backbone was a Godsend. I learned more from Sformo – Operation Backbone - them in a day than in 15 years fighting to get care. Mike said, kill yourself on your own time, now you’re on my time now. Screw the VA!!”

Mike Told me, “Before you blow your head off, let me take a look. Now I am still in the ARMY, & received a new cutting edge spine stem that has brought me form deaths door, to finishing out my ARMY career.”

Opioids after opioids after opioids years and years of pain, drugs, misery frustration with my wife and family! My wife got a hold of Mike, tests & tests & tests, location to location let to a 12-hour surgical spine replacement of hardware. Rehab (pre surgical) with the NHL Dallas Stars, gifted me the ability to spent my first Christmas – in years & years to actually be with my family down stairs and not F-ed up in pain in bed with nothing bud bad thoughts.

“If not for Operation Backbone, I’d be dead. I was addicted to prescription narcotics and tired of being a burden to my family. Backbone saved my life.”
Thanks Mike! Hugh, Special Ops Soldier, Operation Backbone, Fr Bragg, Back, neck destroyed from years of serving US
