In this video of spondylolisthesis treatment in Atlanta, Dr. Castanet explains the pathology of spondylolisthesis and how he treats it. Most of the time spondylolisthesis is an “incidental finding” on diagnostic imaging, e.g. x-ray or MRI scan. That means it usually has little significance to your problem. It is most commonly a part of the degenerative process, and while it can certainly be part of the reason for your pain, changing it is not necessary to making you feel better. In other words, the slip of your spine will remain there even after you get better. And, in fact, it has probably been present for many years or decades before you had pain, and you’ve probably had periods without pain in spite of the slip (spondylolisthesis).
Dr. Castanet will show you spinal segment models to depict the slip. He’ll also discuss various grades of slippage, and which grades are amenable to non-surgical treatment, and which grades may need surgical correction. Further, Dr. Castanet works with the most experienced neurosurgeon in minimally-invasive surgical correction of these slips. That is critically important to give you the best probability of a good surgical outcome. So if you need a surgical opinion, Dr. Castanet can provide it, objectively, without a pro-surgical bias. And he is not anti-surgery. Spinal surgery in the right circumstance can be a godsend.
