“Dr. Melissa Murphy saved my life. That sounds insane but before coming to her office, I’d spent more than two years in excruciating pain. I had sustained an ankle fracture in 2021 that led to CRPS I was virtually wheelchair bound and I was ready to die. I’d had two previous surgeons suggest amputation of my right leg. Dr. Murphy was my third opinion. She put in place a spinal cord stimulator in the Spring of 2023. Since surgery, I learned to walk again. I could care for myself and children again. I can go on long hikes and go dancing again. My life is better now than it even was before. There is such minimal pain that after a long week of activity, I might need just a Tylenol to cope where before I was taking 21 various pain and nerve medications on a daily basis.”
