If you’re experiencing sciatic pain you may be seeking a sciatica treatment plan. It’s always important to remember that sciatica can be caused due to a multitude of spine issues and the term sciatica only refers to the symptoms and is not the cause of the symptoms or a diagnosis.
If you haven’t done so already it’s extremely important that you schedule an appointment to diagnose your issue if you are experiencing numbness, tingling or persistent pain in your back.
Sciatica Diagnostic Procedures
Note: All diagnostic procedures are performed by Dr Mork
The most important thing to understand before back surgery is the correct diagnosis causing the sciatic leg pain. The cause could be bony or soft tissue and must be determined before surgery as a successful procedure depends on the correct diagnosis. This requires a careful evaluation and correlation of the history, the MRI findings, and the CT scan when necessary.
Treatment Options for Sciatica
All treatment procedures are performed by Dr. Mork
Whether the nerve is being pinched or compressed by a disc herniation or overgrowth of bone causing stenosis, the endoscope (7-8 mm) is the ultimate in “minimally invasive” when removing disc or bone overgrowth. Endoscopic spine surgery is also the best approach to avoid a fusion and minimize collateral soft tissue damage.
Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Minimal incision size
Minimal recovery time
Minimal risk of infection
Minimal soft tissue damage
Minimal time at a facility (typically an outpatient procedure)
