Seyed Rezaian, MD, PhD, FRCS, FICS is an expert in spine surgery in Los Angeles operating out of the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills. He very frequently meets with those who are worried about the invasiveness of traditional back surgery or have given up hope after a previous back surgery.
Many patients seeking back surgery have given up hope or have been told by other doctors that their back problems are partially in their heads. The team at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic always trusts the patients that come in for an appointment and do their best to investigate and correctly diagnose any problem through using the most modern technology. Dr. Rezaian offers the following words to those seeking slipped disc, failed back, spinal stenosis, or sciatic nerve pain treatment:
If you suffer from any type of disc problems, you do not need traditional open back surgery and general anesthesia. We have designed the Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UED) that requires only a small incision and local anesthetic. Also, if you are suffering from failed back surgery, it is not the end of world; we can treat you!"
Failed back surgery essentially refers to when a prior back surgery produced inadequate results or worsened the situation. It can be one of the most disheartening conditions because attempting a potentially invasive back surgery in the first place, perhaps for a slipped disc or spinal stenosis treatment, was supposed to bring relief and improve the patient's quality of life. Dr. Rezaian loves meeting with these patients because he believes he can help get these patients the treatment they deserved when they first sought out surgery.
