For most of my patients’ surgeries, recovery and avoiding relapse take significant time. Most patients with back or neck pain don’t need surgery.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
Dr. Vivek Kushwaha, with Orthopaedic Associates in Houston, Texas, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who treats adult lumbar and cervical disorders, and spine trauma. When pain and immobility become an entrenched way of life for a patient, someone with Kushwaha’s rarefied skill set is probably their best chance.
Among Kushwaha’s pioneering efforts: he was the first in Houston to perform the kyphoplasty procedure as well as the first to do a lumbar artificial disk replacement. In addition, he has extensive experience in such specialized operations as surgical revisions, microdiskectomy, and minimally invasive spinal instrumentation and fusion. None are procedures to be undertaken lightly.
Kushwaha offers, “For most of my patients’ surgeries, recovery and avoiding relapse take significant time.” “Most patients with back or neck pain don’t need surgery,” stresses Dr. Kushwaha.
Although many people who experience back pain do not need surgery, sometimes it is in the individual’s best interests to take the next step, Kushwaha states that “usually patients have problems that can be addressed with less intervention. However, a small percentage does need the kind of specialized surgery we provide.” Dr. Kushwaha relies on excellent support staff and cutting edge technology, as found at Memorial Drive Surgical Hospital.
A past chief of Spine Surgery at the University of Texas Medical School and Memorial Hermann Hospital, Dr. Kushwaha remains at the core of the teaching program for UT medical students, residents and fellows. He is on the clinical faculty in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and is co-director of the Spine Fellowship. He has won a number of awards for clinical care, surgical skill, research and teaching over the years. He is on staff at Hermann Drive Surgical Hospital, Memorial Hermann Hospital and St. Joseph Medical Center.
