DALLAS, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- North American Spine™ headquartered in Dallas, Texas is celebrating 6 years of providing the AccuraScope® procedure, a minimally invasive spine surgery that treats chronic back pain this January. To date, more than 8,000 AccuraScope procedures have been performed by board-certified physicians with specialty training in interventional pain management.
"We are pleased with the success we've seen from the AccuraScope procedure," Dr. Darren Schuhmacher explained. "North American Spine's treatments are an exciting and innovative step that will, for many people, provide lasting relief."
Medical research has shown that the AccuraScope procedure has an 82% success rate and saves a patient on average $23,190 out-of-pocket over 5 years by reducing costs like medical visits and medications. North American Spine physicians are spine experts with specialty training in Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Neurosurgery, or Interventional Pain Management. Using a high definition camera and other diagnostic tools, the AccuraScope procedure's goal is to pinpoint all sources of chronic lower spine symptoms and treat them with advanced tools. The outpatient procedure is typically less than 45 minutes.
Among the patient success stories include American country music singer and songwriter Larry Gatlin. Gatlin turned to North American Spine to relieve 47 years of chronic leg pain.
"I am a new man. The little bit of soreness I have now is a lot different than a whole lot of pain," Gatlin said. "I'm a happy camper. It's a miracle in my life and I am grateful for it."
