Re-evaluate Treatment for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

  • Do you discuss the impact of delayed surgical treatment with primary care physicians or other referring physicians?
  • When decompression alone is the surgical recommendation, does the patient go into surgery knowing the procedure may not resolve all Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) symptoms, including back pain?
  • How do the trade-offs of current surgical LSS options effect the way you manage your patients?
  • What conversations are you having with pre-/post-op patients about necessary lifestyle modifications?
  • How does each of the above questions impact my practice, clinical outcomes and patient expectations?

The decision to surgically intervene to resolve a patient’s symptoms of advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis may present the dilemma of potentially under-treating or over-treating the condition. There may be a better option in treating your advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis patients!
