I try to always give options as no results of surgery are perfect. However, improving quality of life and allowing activity do occur after surgery when I involve the whole team at this Institute. Each physicians adds his or her perspective prior to my offering surgery. I am still amazed that patients accept surgery after one visit lbinder@bindermed.com with some doctors without carefully reviewing all options. There are exceptions that require immediate surgery but not common. Younger patients need to bbe careful and review the fine details. Yet, when properly diagnosed, neck or lumbar surgical decompression does offer a fairly low risk solution. Just review a complete plan of treatment with your doctor.
