Low Back Surgery in Atlanta is the topic of this video blog post by Dr. Castanet. In this post he discusses the usual indications for low back surgery, the common various types of surgeries for the more common diagnoses and his most effective alternative treatment for patients looking for an alternative to surgery.
Dr. Castanet is a proponent of low back surgery when it is indicated, but in an effort to provide the most effective, possible alternative to surgery, he provides spinal decompression treatment.
“The problem and limitation with other non-surgical treatments is that they do not do what surgery does. Surgery almost always, i.e. 98% of the time, decompresses the spine to provide relief of pain. So long as non-surgical treatments don’t do that, they can’t compete with surgery in efficacy. That’s why I provide a non-surgical, alternative means of spinal decompression. And that is why this treatment is more effective than other non-surgical treatments. And while surgical decompression can do more decompression than I can, non-surgically, most of the time my spinal decompression treatment does enough to make the person feel fine again. It’s, by far, the most effective non-surgical treatment I’ve used in my 28 years of clinical practice in orthopedics, physical medicine, physical therapy and neurosurgery.”
