How Much of Elective Modern Orthopedic Surgery Makes Us Worse and Not Better?

This weekend I was at a meeting where I met a colleague about my age whom I saw limping. He was heavier, stooped over, and looked physically beat up. I’ve known this person for many years, and I know that he has had a number of back and knee surgical procedures. This literally could have…

New Before/After MRI Images: Stem Cell Disc Bulge Treatment

I’ve blogged a few times on patient JS. I’ve been treating him on/off for 16 years for various problems. This week I’m treating him at our licensed site in Grand Cayman.

Does fusion surgery work? I have blogged before about the research showing that this surgery is often no better in the long-run than no surgery.
