Lumbar Stenosis: Surgical Vs Non Surgical

Published July 18, 2016

Here is a paper that I explain in this video

Lumbar stenosis surgery compared to non surgical intervention has no better outcomes but increases bad side effects. I feel if our patients are happy with the care, than we can justify our treatment.

Conclusion. We cannot conclude on the basis of this review whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with LSS. Nevertheless, we can report on the high rate of effects reported in three of five surgical groups, ranging from 10% to 24%. No side effects were reported for any of the conservative treatment options . . .
