Anyone who has long suffered from lower back pain knows the physical pain and mental frustration that goes along with this sort of chronic condition. Both of these types of pain can often be further exacerbated by a previous procedure that failed to solve the problem. Anyone who has gone through failed back surgery will often experience a tragic addition to their frustration, causing them to walk away discouraged to try any further treatment.
But now, rather than feeling frustrated and hopeless, patients are realizing that the Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UELD) mastered by respected surgeon, Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S. provides a minimally invasive way to end back pain once and for all. The UELD is a lower back pain treatment that uses a tiny incision only a tenth of an inch in size to remove the damaged portion of a herniated disk, while leaving the healthy portion of the disk intact. This procedure also has a very low risk of complications compared to other back surgery techniques.
In addition to leaving a scar that is barely noticeable, this method treats pain and allows patients to return to work quickly. In one study, sixty percent of patients that got the UELD procedure said that they were able to return to work without the use of any painkillers. Anyone who has contemplated back surgery in California knows that the chance of being able to do their job without the assistance of pain killers is a chance that is too good to pass up.
