“I was suffering awfully with neck and shoulder pain. A great friend referred me to Dr. Billy Mills. I was immediately seen, had x-rays taken, diagnosed and a method of treatment was recommended. I had seen 4 other orthopedic and neurological surgeons and was not convinced that the old fashioned way, with screws and cages, was the way to go. Dr. Billy showed me a video of a newer, more permanent procedure, and it sold me. Immediately after surgery the pain was gone. No more pills, no more sleepless nights, and most importantly no more pain.”
