Louisiana Pain Specialist Dr. Arnold Feldman Uses Advanced Techniques to Effectively Treat Herniated Disc
Date:1/31/2013

BATON ROUGE, La., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Justin Pilcher was working as a fitness trainer when he ruptured a disc in his spine. At that moment he joined the nearly 90 percent of Americans who will suffer back pain in their lives. But unlike many Americans, Pilcher is now pain-free and back to the life he had before the injury. He thanks Dr. Arnold Feldman , an interventional pain management specialist, and advanced surgical techniques used by the team at The Feldman Institute in Baton Rouge, La., for his incredible turnaround.

Searching for a safe solution

After the injury, Pilcher suffered through months of pain trying to avoid surgery. "I heard too many horror stories including those about people who solved one problem but encountered another from having back surgery," he says.

Pilcher took pain medication, but eventually went to the emergency room when the pain became unmanageable. A physician confirmed the herniated disc and referred him to a neurologist, who said Pilcher's only options were a discectomy or fusion or risk losing bodily control.

New minimally invasive option

Pilcher did not want a fusion. After conducting additional research, he sought the expert opinion of Dr. Feldman. Following an MRI and careful analysis of Pilcher's situation, Dr. Feldman recommended Pilcher consider undergoing a microendoscopic laser discectomy, a minimally invasive option for treating a herniated disc that removes the damaged disc material causing pain.

"Endoscopic discectomy is highly effective in treating back pain caused by damaged discs," Dr. Feldman says. "It eliminates many of the risks and complications of conventional open surgery. There is only a very small incision. Recovery can be fast depending on a patient's preexisting condition. Our patients are very satisfied with the results."
