Sixty-eight percent of those having surgery were out of work, while only forty-two percent in the non-surgery group were not working. Use of medication was forty-four percent among the lumbar fusion group, but only seventeen percent in those without surgery. Seventeen percent were dissatisfied with their results after surgery, while only three percent in the non-surgery group were dissatisfied with their results.

Realizing the soaring costs and high failure rate of back surgery, the health plan for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) has analyzed the recent research in the management of chronic low back pain. As of January 1, 2012, UPMC implemented a comprehensive clinical initiative focused on the treatment of chronic low back pain. While surgical emergencies would still be addressed immediately, all other lower back surgeries would require prior authorization to determine if surgery was medically necessary.
