LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Getting back surgery can be a difficult, and sometimes scary decision for patients with herniated disks and other concerns. After making such a big decision and undergoing the procedure, it can be dismaying to learn that the procedure did not work. Nevertheless, the hard truth is that failed back surgery using traditional surgical methods is all too common. For that very reason, Seyed M. Rezaian, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S., F.I.C.S., has spent years working with the laser surgical procedure known as a Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UELD). This minimally invasive procedure is ideal for many patients of failed back surgery because of its ability to deliver consistently positive results. Here are several reasons why the UELD laser back surgery procedure performed by Dr. Rezaian at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic is an option that many patients who have experienced failed back surgery take advantage of.
- Reduced Risk – Compared to traditional back surgery, the UELD procedure has an incredibly low rate of complications. Anyone who has recently undergone failed back surgery knows that surgery can often make problems worse. But, by using advanced laser technology, Dr. Rezaian minimizes these risks to make sure that his patients benefit from positive results.
- Reduced Impact – While some procedures remove the entire herniated disk and replace it with an implant, the Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy procedure removes only a small, damaged portion of the disk, allowing the body to go through much less trauma, leading to quicker recovery times. Anyone who has recently gone through a failed procedure knows that the enduring physical pain is compounded by the fact that surgical recovery makes it difficult to return to work and other normal activities. Not only do patients from the procedure recover quickly, but many enjoy complete recoveries. Sixty percent of Dr. Rezaian's UELD patients said that, after the UELD procedure, they were able to return to work without the use of any painkillers.
- Reduced Scarring – In addition to the emotional scars that come with failed back surgery, patients are left with an unsightly physical reminder of their failed procedure. Luckily, the UELD procedure only necessitates an incision one tenth of an inch in size. Increased scarring should never be the reason why suffering patients shy away from surgery, but with a UELD, that consideration doesn't even have to be made.
Despite the reservations that many patients may hold, spine surgery in Los Angeles does not have to be a frightening concept. Procedures like the Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy performed by Dr. Rezaian at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic has been proven to be a safe way to deliver outstanding results to any patient still suffering from pain after a failed procedure. You can see firsthand what great results patients experience when they visit Dr. Rezaian on his website's testimonial page.
