Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery

Though back problems are usually considered a side effect of aging, many children suffer from severe, chronic back pain as well. Car accident injuries, sports injuries and childhood tumbles can take their toll on growing spines, and potentially require pediatric orthopedic surgery. Pediatric orthopedic surgery can make the world of a difference in how a child feels if they are suffering from herniated or bulging disc in their spine. Thanks to modern advances in pediatric orthopedic surgery, the use of lasers has positively altered the success rate of spinal surgery on children. Instead of open back surgery that had serious risks and required weeks of healing, a procedure known as universal endoscopic laser discectomy enables pediatric orthopedic surgery to occur under local anesthesia. Additionally, the laser surgical procedure leaves behind virtually no scar and can treat the spinal problem without adversely affecting the adjacent tissues. The result is a much faster and easier recovery with a higher success rate than traditional pediatric orthopedic surgery.

The spine is one of the most important parts of the body, and can dramatically impact a person or child’s enjoyment of life. For this reason, it is important to do the research necessary before pediatric orthopedic surgery to find the best treatment options available and the top doctors to perform the surgery. One of the pioneering doctors of the universal endoscopic laser discectomy procedure is Dr. Rezaian. Located in Southern California, Dr. Rezaian is an expert in laser pediatric orthopedic surgery, and has treated hundreds of children with very successful outcomes.
