Hi,

I'm Binny. I have DDD and have been offered the lateral access surgery and am wondering if anyone has had a good outcome from this. They want to do three levels. It sounds like a very good alternative to traditional anterior or posterior surgeries and I'm just wanting some feedback.

Thanks so much for any help you can give me. Binny

  • Welcome to spine health!

    Here is a video link to the surgery itself. Its outcomes etc.
    I don't know to many people that have had it. I think there has been a couple.

  • Thank you for the link and for welcoming me. This is the first time I have ever joined anything on-line. I have had chronic back pain for at least 15 years but it has gotten worse and worse over time. It's sad to see how many people deal with chronic pain, surgeries, etc., but it's nice to have support from others. Thanks, again. Binny
