    Dear Fatoki,

    We are sorry to read that you are experiencing some physical issues. Unfortunately, we do not do any spine surgeries as a part of our surgical program. Although we are not able to provide the answers which you are seeking, we do hope you will be able to find a healthcare professional who specializes in spines and/or a hospital who can assist you.
