Dr. Matthew Neal: Minimally invasive spine surgery

For patients with focal spinal degeneration, surgery is an intimidating prospect. Significant pain and blood loss, as well as hospitalization for three to four days, are typical. Yet forgoing surgery can mean living with pain and possibly disability. All three campuses of Mayo Clinic offer minimally invasive spinal surgery, which generally entails less pain and blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and outcomes comparable to open surgery. Matthew Neal, M.D., neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, explains the benefits.

  1. Although im not in favour of surgery but its been 8months i have been into disc buldge and did every thing such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, Hijama, indian herbal treatment and even epidural injection and tired from pain killers.

  2. To anyone suffering from L5 S1 spondylolisthesis , I have been suffering for about 6 months from this pain all on my left leg , buttock area and have been to many surgeons in my area and all of them suggested TLIF surgery. My experience surgeons would love to operate on you and cut you open ! my personal experience , anybody in doctor's office that I met pre surgery were walking regularly and with no walker. Most people that were walking with canes or walker were post-op even 2 year based on my talks with them. so do the surgery if you are really wetting yourself and have nerve damage. If not follow my leads and believe it or not I am in a lot better shape now just with these home remedies :

    1-make soups with chicken feet and have this at least 5 meals a week

    2-Glucosamine Chondroitin products and all peels that contain this

    3-home stretches or Physical therapy , keep that area that hurts stretched at least 3 hours per day

    4- joint juice , lots of joint support supplements from Costco

    5- heat and cold patch

    and believe it pain would go away in few months , max a year

    I was in the verge of doing the fusion and I am super happy that I didn't go for it and I hope this would help someone else

    in same pain levels that I was in few months ago

  3. I`ve got continuous lower back pain as well as stiffness. I had been seeking several remedies as well as tried all of them however did not find any great results. Having said that, this back ache guidebook called “Kemzαnο Loni” (Google it) has been the best. It is very comfortable. You should attempt this guidebook also! .

  7. i have been living with back pain now for over 6 years , i am only 28 years old and my whole twenties have been ruined coz of it , i have been on every single pain killer, have done radio fequancy have had countless steroid injections and nothing still living in pain, i have made the decision to have back surgery, i want to get off these pain killers, i dont feel myself anymore i am not the peter i used to be, i really hope work cover makes it easy for me and approves this surgery so i can get back to a normal life , i really want to 🙁

  8. To many JERK surgeons out there.Theres no care BEFORE and after surgery. They do the surgery and don't know about anything else.They don't look at the body itself to see if something else is going ok.There evaluations are outdated.They spend more time on the computer then exactly seeing what's wrong.There are very few Doctors that care. I get the ones that mommy and daddy said be a doctor WHEN THEY REALLY SHOULD BE FLIPPING BURGERS.

  9. My orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jack Seaquist referred me to Pain Management when I asked him to fix my back. He stopped during back surgeries because his percentage of satisfied patients was so much lower than that of knee and hip and shoulder surgery. I have actually never one person who says they are glad they had back surgery. But I have met many who are on their 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, even 7th surgeries each one is an attempt to fix what went wrong in the previous surgery. I'm on my second spinal cord stimulator because the batteries stop working after 4-5 years. The worse thing now is that Pain Management gives me such a low dose of pain medication it's hardly worth the drive to see them anymore. I've spent 5 years in rehab from various knee, hip, shoulder and thumb joint surgeries. I am still ambulatory thanks to Jack Seaquist. I will never get back surgery because I've seen the results. Our next door neighbor had spinal Fusion 4 months that failed one month later. She is now in tremendous pain and regrets having done it.
