DALLAS, July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- North American Spine™, the exclusive provider of the AccuraScope® procedure, was featured on WPMT FOX43. The AccuraScope procedure offers hope to those who suffer from neck and back pain with its treatment that does not involve a major surgery.
The segment featured Joe Berry, a former firefighter and EMT who lived in constant pain. His pain made it difficult for Berry to lift patients and live a normal life.
"I have a Harley, I'm an active guy. I like to hunt. I like to fish. I couldn't even do those things," said Berry.
Berry sought numerous treatments that included minor surgery, steroid shots and other conventional treatments. Eventually he ran out of options. After doing some internet research he discovered the AccuraScope Procedure.
The AccuraScope procedure is performed in Dallas by North American Spine doctors. This procedure is a minimally invasive spine surgery and takes less than an hour to complete. Doctors from North American Spine use a tiny laser, smaller than the tip of a mechanical pencil, that only works on the tissue it touches. Doctors recommend that the AccuraScope treatment is best for those with tissue related issues, not with bone problems.
After the procedure Berry says the relief was immediate. Berry is back to work without any pain and he's enjoying his life again with his family.
"My kids and even my wife have told me, it's nice to have the old Joe back," Berry said.
"We are pleased with the success we've seen from the AccuraScope procedure," Dr. Basem of North American Spine explained. "North American Spine's treatments are an innovative step that will, for many people, provide lasting relief."
Most patients who receive the AccuraScope procedure feel pain-free immediately and are able to leave the clinic the day of the procedure and return to work within a week.
"We see a lot of patients come from out-of-state to Dallas for the AccuraScope procedure," Jon Sasser of North American Spine said. "It is a great minimally invasive alternative that could have you pain-free and back to work in a short amount of time."
To date, more than 8,000 AccuraScope procedures have been performed by board-certified physicians with specialty training. Medical research has shown that the AccuraScope procedure has an 82% success rate and saves patients an average of $23,190 in out-of-pocket costs over 5 years by reducing expenses including medical visits and medications.
