It almost brings tears to his eyes as Mr. Ansley recalls his life changing moments after his spine surgery on his neck. His life had nearly come to a standstill until he opted to have his procedure performed. An active and hard worker all of this life, he was ready to get moving again. On the day of his surgery, he was shopping just a couple of hours after he left the surgical facility and has not looked back since. Thanks to Dr. Katzman, Jeff was able to undergo a quick recovery and return to work and a normal lifestyle in just a few days. Like so many of the other patients from all over the country that have come to seek care like that of Dr. Katzman and his colleagues with Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery Center, he is happy to share his story which can be seen along with others on their website.
It can be amazing realizing how far spine surgeries have come in just the past few years. First becoming more recognized and highly discussed among physician’s medical journals over a decade ago, minimally invasive spine surgery has now evolved into a welcome practice and sought out medical treatment for both common and uncommon back problems. These back and neck surgeries are unlike their painful predecessors because they are offered as a quick day surgery, do not require general anesthesia, do not require a large incision, and the recovery time is unbelievably small. Many patients are walking painlessly just hours out of their surgical procedures and on with their daily routines almost right away. Dr. Scott Katzman, a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon highly recognized for his outstanding skill with minimally invasive spine procedures, states “I am confident in this technique and recommend it when possible for my patients”. Offering countless patients new hope and returning their lives back to normal are demonstrated time and time again with this modernized method.
If you have questions regarding your back problem and are curious if minimally invasive surgery is right for you, there is a lot of literature and websites out there. But the best thing to do is visit with your established doctor or a see a qualified spine specialist for a complete discussion of your particular condition.
