Jeremiah Dawson – Cervical Fusion for 10-year Chronic Back and Neck Problem
Field training officer Jeremiah Dawson had been living with his chronic pain since 2006. Working around the pain for more than a decade, Jeremiah finally realized the severity of his problem during training with younger police officers. Jeremiah felt sharp pains in his leg as he was going through a routine running exercise.
Recognizing that the pain was becoming a hindrance to his job and to his life at home, Jeremiah sought out treatment from Doctor Kamson at Spine Institute Northwest (SINW).
After Jeremiah ‘s successful operation (a cervical fusion), he says, “Doctor Kamson has a way of putting you at ease, you are able to talk to him and he gives you the answers you need.” “I haven’t regretted one moment,” he explains, thankful that he is finally living his life as he wants to again.
Cameron Reyes – Lumbar Decompression for Back Pain
Cameron, a self-described ‘300 pound meat and potatoes guy’ who was struggling with long term chronic back pain had this to say about his experience at Spine Institute Northwest after undergoing lumbar decompression:
“When Doctor Kamson told me that he could make me better, I wept like a kid”, Cameron says. “I got a fresh start. It’s the closing of a horrible, horrible long chapter in my life,” says Cameron after finally being free of his chronic back pain.”

Margo Witters: “Everybody here is so friendly”
Margo knew immediately that she was in the right place when she decided to get treated for back pain at Spine Institute Northwest (SINW). The Spokane, WA resident came in for lumbar fusion to address her bad back. Of Doctor Kamson, Margo says, “He was right on top of my treatment.” She remembers the atmosphere at Spine Institute as “giving her a sense of peace” and the general feeling of “the (staff) just wanting to help you.
Before her procedure at SINW, her back was so bad that she was nearly immobile and had to resort to using a walker, or worse – confined to a wheelchair. Today, more than a year after her surgery, Margo is back to her old self before all her back pain began.
Here are some success stories from patients I have helped with minimally invasive spine surgery.
Andrea-Snyder Nelson had this to say about her procedure at Spine Institute Northwest:
” I didn’t think it would be this good, honestly. From what I’ve read online and from experience, I thought it would be that I would still need some sort of oral pain medication. I t seems like the majority of patients still need some sort of pain medication, so to be where I am, I’m pretty impressed.”
