When Spine doctor and interventional pain management specialist Dr. Steven E. Levine, needed medical treatment for his back pain, he reached out to Doctor Solomon Kamson of Spine Institute Northwest.
Dr. Levine, who has his own medical practice that specializes in minimally invasive back surgeries and treatments in Carmel, Indiana, entrusted the procedure to Dr. Kamson, noting that “Dr. Kamson was one of the few physicians that he knew of in the United States that could do what needed to be done in a less invasive manner.”
Dr. Levine knew from his own practice that relying on traditional open back surgery performed by neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons, while immediately effective, would potentially mean more problems in the form of degenerated discs or more nerve pain in the future.
Satisfied with the outcome of his treatment, Dr. Levine states that the less invasive procedure performed by Dr. Kamson “did not destabilize his spine.” A firm advocate that less is always more, Dr. Levine says that “the goal is to avoid surgery.”
A day after his procedure, Dr. Levine is already walking the next day with a only a Band-Aid and some soreness on his back as a reminder of that procedure he underwent.
Listen to Dr. Levine’s full testimony, as he talks about the problems inherent in traditional surgery and why he opted for a minimally invasive procedure at Spine Institute Northwest.
