The only thing more frustrating than chronic back pain is having failed back surgery that results in even more pain. In addition to the physical pain stemming from a failed procedure, there is also a tremendous amount of emotional pain that discourages patients from seeking any further lower back pain treatment. Luckily for these patients, Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S. has spent years perfecting a minimally invasive procedure that delivers outstanding results without the complications typically seen in traditional back surgery.
The Universal Endoscopic Discectomy is a laser procedure that uses a 1/10” incision that results in minimal scarring. It is also an out-patient procedure that does not require a hospital stay and can be performed under local anesthesia to treat herniated disks. One of the things that makes this specific disc herniation treatment unique is that, rather than removing the whole herniated disc, Dr. Rezaian is able to only remove the damaged portion of the disk, resulting in less overall trauma for the body, and a quicker recovery.
In a 2005 survey of patients who had undergone this procedure with Dr. Rezaian, 90 percent of all patients said that they were able to return to work after having the Universal Endoscopic Discectomy procedure. What’s more, two thirds of those patients said that they could go about their job without the need of any painkillers whatsoever.
The Universal Endoscopic Discectomy is perfect for anyone suffering from a failed back procedure because it delivers great results with minimal risk. If you’re in pain, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Rezaian at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic today!
