Melina Pedraza

After a car accident with a tractor trailer in 2019, Melina Pedraza was in pain every day. She had nerve damage and had a tough time walking. When other treatments didn’t help, she opted for spinal surgery, and turned to Dr. Gerard Girasole, co-director of the Connecticut Orthopaedic Institute at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. Using new 7D radiation-free technology, he was able to perform a time consuming spinal fusion surgery in a short period of time and get pinpoint accuracy. Melina did exceptionally well, and within hours after surgery, she was out of bed and her leg pain was gone.
