I found this site for surgeons that do microsurgery even if you have had previous pain or surgeries they can sometimes help. Tell me my fellow pain sufferers what do you think of this??? Does it work??? If so then why are not more people going to these surgeons to fix their pain.

Yes, I know of a few peeps that had the microsurgery and they were helped by it. Their neurosurgeon was very experienced with. A couple had it after having a formal surgery, show we call it that. I think if I met the criteria for the surgery and was ready for it, I would definetly opt for that any day of the week.

That's what I was thinking stray. Is maybe when they do the mylogram I could see if they want to look at my results and see if they could help me.
Thanks for your post :-)

I had a minimally invasive double lumbar fusion. I'm guessing there was some type of microsurgery involved. Problem is the 3 hour surgery ended up taking 5 hrs. and, of course, being "more complicated" than what they expected. Now my neurosurgeon wants to do a "traditional" surgery to remove scar tissue, and I've said no thanks. Just seems to become an endless loop.

Yeah I know what ya mean PA....my doc says that taking out the scar tissue is a bad idea....it'll only end up with more scar tissue.
