Patient Profile: Meet Ana Monica
Ana Monica is a 15 year-old living in Torreón, Mexico. At 2-years-old, she suffered a stroke from a pacemaker malfunction which lead to an embolism and scoliosis. Ana Monica lived for over 10 years with severe lower-back pain which caused her to have trouble walking and living daily life.
Thanks to a NuVasive Spine Foundation (NSF) mission trip in partnership with Global Spine Outreach, Ana Monica received spine surgery to correct her scoliosis in September 2017.
