Dr. Gore’s Analysis
As we age and our spine becomes old we get changes of degeneration. These changes are irreversible and by law of nature progressive, we as surgeons do control the pain and other symptoms and try to help you in prolonging the healthy time.
80% of patients can be treated on OPD basis. If this treatment is done accurately, patients will not have to bear pain for long durations and the root cause of pain can be taken care of. However, since majority of times the root cause of pain is not treated correctly at the right time, the problem intensifies. At such times the patient has to finally undergo invasive treatments, long investigations and may be surgery. These patients may be primarily managed by injections.
15% of patients have nerve physical compression detected by a SLR or straight leg raising. They may need surgery depending on age, suffering, duration, activities of daily life and limitations etc. The surgery may be planned or emergent. Here Dr. Gore’s contribution is selective use of post void residual urine estimation by ultra sound examination, grading involvement of the sacral roots.
5% of patients most probably need surgery as only option to relieve the patient of the pain and other associated problems. They may be having nerve deficit and dysfunction. This pain relief though can be achieved by Dr. Gore’s Stitchless Surgery under Local Anesthesia.
