“I’m back to how I was in my twenties,” said Joshua Odom, Iraq War veteran and a LESS Institute patient success story. Odom came to the LESS Institute a year and a half ago to see Dr. Kingsley R. Chin, who completed both neck and lower back surgery on him. After visiting several doctors who told him there was no chance in his healing, Odom found the solution in Dr. Chin.
“He came to see me, really suffering,” said Dr. Chin. But post-surgery, Odom is now feeling “fully healed.” From jujitsu and golf to running and lifting, Odom is back to his daily routine and continually benefiting from his decision to visit the LESS Institute.
Odom has minimal cosmetic incisions and he was even able to go home the day of surgery. Odom said he was amazed at the process, previously believing he would have to remain in the hospital for several days of recovery. Instead, he began his healing process amid family in the comfort of his own space.
“Josh is a great example of how we’re changing lives by doing outpatient surgery,” said Dr. Chin. “I’ve been privileged and honored to help him get back into society.”
