The Gore Matrix lists out the different approaches taken to solve the problem of pain relief for a patient. It states the traditional approach which still majorly relies on imaging and the Gore System approach which relies primarily on symptoms of pain.

Treatment of back pain, sciatica, and claudication has changed due to understanding of anatomy, physiology of pain generators leading to change in access, philosophy and equipment. Dr. Gore has tried to summarize what was the traditional past, why change is necessary and what has changed, and how the change is incorporated in Gore Matrix for diagnosis and Gore System for treatment in back pain, sciatica, and claudication by proposing spine surgery as stitchless and under local anesthesia in awake and aware patients.
