Houston Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Richard R.M. Francis has been helping patients suffering from decades of chronic back pain to get Back to Normal since he founded Spine Associates in 2003. Dr. Francis is one of the few spine surgeons who treats children and adults from around the world. Spine Associates also helps their International Patients and families with travel and accommodations through their International Medical Services.

Imagine how it would be to have suffered from chronic back pain for years or even decades? Some patients were diagnosed and seen by multiple doctors over the years and possibly even had a surgery or two. That’s how it was for many of Dr. Francis’ patients.

Here are a few of their Testimonials….

There’s Jeremiah Barnes who became bedridden and partially paralyzed after two former surgeries who found Dr. Francis and had emergency surgery two weeks later to remove hardware and correct the previous surgeries. Jeremiah is now back to work, active with family and friends, has regained mobility and function and now feels like he is in as good a shape at 40 years old as he was at 25.

Then there is Joseph Manjack III. In 2000 he was run over while on foot by a vehicle. Throughout the last 16 years he had been struggling with severe pain in both his neck and lower back. In 2016 the pain was no longer bearable and Joseph was in so much pain that his blood pressure was through the roof and it even began to affect his vision. The doctors thought he was having a heart attack. Joseph had not been able to keep a job and provide for his family, his marriage was starting to fall apart and he was beginning to have depression and feel like he didn’t want to live anymore. Though he was very skeptical of surgery he found Dr. Francis, had surgery and now feels like a completely different and brand-new person. He would recommend Spine Associates to anyone that has any neck, spine, or back problems. He said that Dr. Francis takes his time and explains everything that his patients will be feeling and going through. Joseph now feels like Dr. Francis has changed his life and now it’s better than ever!

There is Dora Orta who had been suffering with back pain since 2005. In 2006, she had her first back surgery and after the surgery was still in a lot of pain. That same year she had her second back surgery with the same doctor and still had the constant back pain and the top part of her body was leaning forward. Her pain management doctor referred her to Dr. Richard Francis who took x-rays and showed her what was wrong with her back. Dr. Francis told her that it would be a challenge, but that he would be able to fix her back. On April 13, 2011, she had her back surgery. Afterward she said the doctors, nurses and staff were the most personable, caring and uplifting people that she and her had ever dealt with in a medical environment. Now she can stand straight, walk better and is no longer in constant pain thanks to Dr. Francis.

Another patient of Dr. Francis, Douglas Clark, who lived in Iowa fell 20 feet off a roof when he was 16 years old. He lived through the pain for 33 years and finally, after an MRI with his family doctor, was referred to Dr. Francis. Douglas saw Dr. Francis, was properly diagnosed and had surgery 20 days later which immediately relieved the pressure on his spinal cord. After some physical therapy he could return to work, his flexibility and mobility improved, and his daily life has improved.

There is also Wendy Strange who is now 46 years old but was diagnosed with Scoliosis when she was 14. She wore a brace for one year after her first diagnosis but over the years had noticed significant changes in the degree of the curves in her back. Wendy experienced constant discomfort and her previous doctor offered her nothing that helped her to deal with her condition. Wendy found Dr. Francis who told he that he could correct her spine problem. She knew she did not want her scoliosis to continue to progress, leaving her crippled and unable to live the active lifestyle that she and her husband enjoyed. Wendy had her surgery performed by Dr. Francis and after strictly following her post-op instructions could dance at her son’s wedding just 8 weeks after her surgery…. Just like Dr. Francis said she would!

Prosecutor: Pharmacist in meningitis case gambled with lives

Oct 21, 2017

BOSTON — A pharmacist charged with murder in a meningitis outbreak that killed 76 people knew that mold and other bacteria were growing inside the filthy production rooms and that drugs shipped to customers were not sterile, but chose to do nothing, a federal prosecutor told jurors Friday. Glenn Chin, the supervisory pharmacist at the now-closed New England Compounding Center in Framingham, ignored warning signs that his production methods were unsafe and decided instead to gamble with patients' lives, Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Strachan said during closing arguments.

Spacewalking astronaut copes with frayed tether, bad jetpack

Oct 21, 2017

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A spacewalking astronaut successfully replaced a blurry camera outside the International Space Station on Friday, but had to contend with a balky jetpack and a frayed safety tether. Both jetpacks and safety ties are crucial for saving a flyaway astronaut. NASA said Joe Acaba was always securely attached to the orbiting outpost and never in any danger during the nearly seven-hour spacewalk. But one of his tethers had to be replaced shortly after he and station commander Randy Bresnik floated outside. Mission Control noticed the red lifeline was frayed and worn. Bresnik went back to the...

Searchers in Mexico find, but release, vaquita porpoise calf

Oct 21, 2017

MEXICO CITY — Researchers trying to catch and enclose the last survivors of the vaquita porpoise species captured a calf but released it because it was too young to survive without its mother. Mexico's Environment Department said veterinarians determined the calf was too young and experts said it was showing signs of stress after capture. The experts with Mexican-led international effort known as VaquitaCPR still saw hope in the calf's capture. "The successful rescue made conservation history and demonstrates that the goal of VaquitaCPR is feasible," said Environment Secretary Rafael Pacchiano. "No one has ever captured and cared for a...

Study: World pollution deadlier than wars, disasters, hunger

Oct 21, 2017

NEW DELHI — Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 — about 9 million — could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure, according to a major study released Thursday in The Lancet medical journal. The financial cost from pollution-related death, sickness and welfare is equally massive, the report says, costing some $4.6 trillion in annual losses...
