Spine Surgery

Spine Surgery

Sometimes you must have spine surgery. The risk::reward ratio must be undeniably in your favor.

It is that simple.

My aim is, of course,  to help you avoid the risk of spine surgery, however, that said, sometimes the very best thing for you IS spine surgery.  It may seem counter-intuitive with the bad press surrounding spine surgery.   But here’s why.

I submit rather that poor outcomes are predicated upon poor selection.  I want to marry your problem with the very best tool for the job, and sometimes that tool will not be in my toolbox, but in that of a surgeon.  When that happens, when I identify a particular problem that I think will be well treated with a surgical solution, I refer to a surgeon.  And to THE surgeon who is best for that particular spine or pain problem.

For example: Microendoscopic Discectomy: 97% of patients satisfied.  Amazing.  Here is a great treatment for a particular problem.  Low Risk::High Satisfaction.  To avoid this kind of outcome would be failing my patients.

 

Surgery is not what you do when there is nothing else to do.

Surgery is what you do when you have a plan for success.

Why would you want spine surgery?

Louis Raso MD

Florida Pain Doctor, Louis Raso, MD

Dr. Louis Raso has an impressive pedigree. When it comes to pain doctors, he’s created a body of work that’s not only substantial, but also has garnered a lot of respect among other doctors across the nation. And it all starts with his training about three decades ago.

Dr. Raso graduated from Rutgers University with a bachelor’s degree in zoology & physiology, making the dean’s list and completing honors chemistry in the process — all while being the captain of the Rutgers tennis team. From there he went to Rutgers Medical School where he earned his doctorate in June of 1985. He continued his education by performing his internship and residency in general surgery at Rutgers University, Cooper Medical Center, and then proceeded on to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. There he performed his residency in anesthesiology, and took a specialty year, primarily training himself in Interventional Pain Management including implantation techniques and neuromodulation.

What’s an epidural?

In this video we discuss epidural steroid injections. Specifically transforaminal epidural steroid injection. There has been much debate about epidural steroids recently in the public literature. However in season hands used appropriately transferable epidural steroid injections can be immeasurably helpful for back and leg pain secondary to disc pressing on nerves and sciatica.
