An Alternative to Traditional Back Surgery

If you have ever had to deal with persistent back pain caused by a herniated disc, perhaps exacerbated by a failed back surgery, then you know how frustrating and difficult back problems can be when traditional procedures and medications fail to provide lasting relief. Fortunately, Seyed Rezaian, MD, PhD, FRCS, FICS of the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic has provided countless patients with lasting relief through minimally invasive laser back surgery. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using a local anesthesia. Patients consistently report good results and are able to resume their ordinary routines in a surprisingly brief time period.

The procedure used by Dr. Rezaian is known as universal endoscopic discectomy (UED). It is a minimally invasive technique that, in the case of a herniated disc treatment, uses a laser to remove only the damaged part of the disc though a tiny incision that is only 1/10 of an inch in diameter.

UED can also be used for spinal stenosis treatment, which deals with the pain, numbness, and loss of motor ability that can occur when the spinal canal around the spinal cord narrows. Once again, patients who undergo this technique report better results, faster recovery times, and reduced risks during and after surgery.

Dr. Rezaian is one of the world's most respected specialists in orthopedic surgery. He has published over 100 scientific papers and has been a leader in minimally invasive approaches to back problems for several decades. He is also the creator of the Rezaian Spinal Fixator for providing relief to fractures of the thoracolumbar spine.

If you or a loved one is suffering from persistent back pain, then it may well be time to contact the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic to see if a laser back treatment is an option for you.
