LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- While many in the nation are divided on the issue of the Affordable Care Act, one thing is certain: hundreds of thousands of people who didn't have health coverage are now insured. The act focuses on preventative care and allows coverage for those with preexisting conditions, which could be a huge incentive for those currently suffering from chronic injuries—perhaps stemming from a failed back surgery—to finally get treatment. Seyed M. Rezaian, MD, PhD, FRCS, FICS, innovator in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, welcomes any patients who are using the new healthcare provisions as motivation to finally seek treatment.
Whether those currently in debilitating back pain will seek out services like Dr. Rezaian's laser back surgery due to the Affordable Care Act is uncertain. However, many specialists believe that the law may help those who were previously reluctant to seek treatment for non-emergency issues. Reuters recently reported from the annual scientific sessions of the American Heart Association that the group of cardiologists strongly supports the act, believing it will improve on the current situation of "treating heart attacks and strokes on an emergency basis." The act also opens up access to mental health services that weren't available for many people prior to its ratification. Those who are suffering from a mental illness—estimated to be about 60 million Americans—can now seek treatment if they are covered, improving our nation's general health.
If the expected flux of patients seeking coverage in those specialties extends to back and spine treatment, then Dr. Rezaian is ready to help. His talented team at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills is prepared to meet with anybody who has been enduring back pain as a result of an injury or perhaps after a prior failed surgical attempt at correcting back pain. His approach, much like the methods lined out above, always veers on the side of minimally invasive treatments.
For instance, Dr. Rezaian prefers attempting non-surgical means before recommending that patients go under the knife. On the webpage for his California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic, Dr. Rezaian shares many exercises that can diminish and potentially prevent back and leg pain. While these exercises should not be attempted if a person is feeling severe pain, these can be a great relief for those with the most common back issues.
When exercise and medication don't resolve lingering back pain, Dr. Rezaian may suggest the surgery he has perfected over the past few decades: Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UED). This method uses an incredibly small incision and a precise laser to remove tissue that is causing inflammation and pain in the spine. It's a great alternative to traditional back surgery and can often produce immediate results.
