Hello I am new to this sight. My husband who has experienced back pain for 2 years with
sciatica pain down leg for past 6 mos.
After trying all avenues and alternatives he has finally decided surgery is the answer
after visiting with NS and OS. I'm leaning towards NS with 1/2" cut as opposed to 4" scar
from OS. They stated it will be a bilateral microdiscectomy L3-5, S1.
We are self pay due to pre-existing clause in husband's insurance policy.
I am looking for testimonials from individuals who have experienced this same surgery and what type Dr you used?
Did you stay in hospital or was it done as out patient? Thanks for any/all input--obviously myhusband is a nervous wreck!
I've also been told to only use someone with a spine fellowship. Is anyone familiar with this?
