SPINE SURGERY - HOW SUCCESSFUL?

by Kottakkal Support July 30, 2020

A recent article in The Economist suggests that even after surgery 87% still suffer from back pain.

 

“In 2011 Cigna, an American insurance company ran a follow-up study on patients who had undergone procedures in which vertebrae are stitched together with implanted bolts and braces. “Spinal fusion” of this type is a frequently used surgical response to back pain that is associated with the degeneration of spinal discs; in 2015 there were roughly 85,000 such surgeries in America. The company found that two years after treatment 87% of customers were still in pain severe enough for medication or some other treatment; 15% had more surgery.”
