15. Do You Really Need Spine Surgery?: Take Control With a Surgeon’s Advice
Author: by Dr. David Hanscom
Deciding whether to undergo spine surgery is one of the most important choices you will ever make. Author and spine surgeon Dr. David Hanscom has observed that in this era of corporate medicine, surgical decisions are often made quickly without a complete evaluation or attempt at non-surgical rehabilitation before proceeding.The result?
The majority of spine operations are unnecessary and many surgeries are performed on spines with normal, age-related conditions. When performed for a specific anatomical problem with matching symptoms, the outcomes are consistently satisfying. Conversely, when surgery is conducted to address pain without a clear source, the consequences can be unpredictable, with a high percent of patients faring poorly or becoming much worse (catastrophic).
A failed spinal surgery can virtually destroy one’s life. Additionally, when a patient’s nervous system is fired up from stress, results are often poor. A common cry from patients is, If I only knew how badly this could turn out, I would have never had this surgery.
