Danny Holden

LUMBAR MICRODISCECTOMY

PHYSICIAN: TIMOTHY PHILLIPS, MD

Danny Holden was lying on his back fixing a sink, a routine maintenance task. When Danny stood up he noticed a sharp pain in his buttocks radiating down his left leg. He assumed he had just pulled something, but after three weeks with no improvement, Danny decided it was time to have it checked out. He went to see Optim Orthopedics’ Nurse Practitioner Terry Webb. Terry discovered Danny had a herniated disk and referred him to Optim Neurosurgeon Timothy Phillips. Dr. Phillips performed a lumbar microdiscectomy in August of 2016 at the physician owned Optim Medical Center-Tattnall.

“I went in for surgery at 9:30 in the morning and was out before noon. I walked out with no pain. You couldn’t ask for a better doctor than Dr. Phillips,” Danny said.
