Anyone who has had major open surgery knows that even with the most successful surgeries, there is usually a large, unfortunate scar left over as a reminder of past ailments. But, with revolutionary advances in laser back surgery, talented surgeons like Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S., can perform lower back procedures to fix herniated disks with extremely minimal scarring and incredibly positive results.
People who have recently had failed back surgery can be especially conscious of scarring, and will be happy to know that the Universal Endoscopic Discectomy performed by Dr. Rezaian only requires an incision one tenth of an inch in size. Not only do patients of Dr. Rezaian experience a significant or complete reduction of pain, but they get these benefits without gaining an additional large, ugly scar on top of the pre-existing scar from their failed procedure.
Spine surgery in Los Angeles can be a daunting procedure, especially for patients of a previous failed procedure who are still living with emotional and physical scars.

If you or a loved one has been suffering from lower back pain as a result of a herniated disk, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Rezaian at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic. Many people have given up hope and assume that they will have to live the rest of their days in pain, but that is no longer to case. Don’t go another day without knowing your options.
