Results: Preventing Surgery & Fixing Failed Surgeries

While back surgery may be the only solution to some existing back problems, many medical professionals and surgeons themselves feel strongly that every non-invasive option should be explored before turning to surgery. Although advances in surgery have made many procedures less invasive and more effective, surgery does come with inherent risks. With high costs and lengthy recovery time, it only makes sense to consider all of your options before making a decision about surgery.

    As an orthopedic surgeon,  I have seen many back pain patients over the past 35 years. In more recent years, I have been quite impressed by the favorable results, both clinically, and by MRI testing, of VAX-D treatment on patients who either declined surgery, or are not considered good surgical candidates. VAX-D is an excellent non-invasive option for treating many back pain patients.

In 25 years of practice, I have not witnessed any type of treatment for severe, chronic low back and leg pain so effective as VAX-D Therapy. VAX-D should be offered to every patient with back pain prior to any consideration of surgery.

“I believe anyone with a herniated or
degenerative disc should try
VAX-D first, before surgery.”

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
Failed Back Surgery Syndrome is a real term used when a patient continues to suffer from pain and loss of mobility long after surgery. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, there are approximately 200,000 laminectomies performed every year with an estimated 20–30% of these operations reported to be unsuccessful. A laminectomy removes bone and thickened tissue that is narrowing the spinal canal and squeezing the spinal cord and nerve roots.

Great News for Post-Surgical Patients!
If you still suffer from pain after surgery, we have great news for you! Post-surgical patients have experienced fantastic therapeutic results from decompression therapy on the VAX-D. While those with surgical hardware, such as brackets, plates and screws, are not candidates for VAX-D, many post-operative patients are. If you have had surgery with unsatisfactory results or have suffered a relapse, consult your doctor about the possible benefits of VAX-D.
