Its great to hear how well you are doing after your surgery. I appreciate your kind words. My staff and myself work extremely hard to excel at all we do. Im happy to say we have been named the first and only Spine Center of Excellence anywhere in Texas. Dr Phelps
Im sory that we were not able to get the results that we were hoping for. Not everyone resonds to surgical treatment as well as we would like. As far as surgery is concerned, only 1 in 50 patients that gets seen ever goes on to surgery. The vast majority (over 95%) of patients do well with our conservative treatments. We dont fuse every patient as some surgeons do as its not often needed and causes more discomfort and increases costs for the patient. We think that non-fusion surgery is a great option that allows out patients to still bend and have mobility. There are many options for people with continued pain, such as injections and dorsal stimulators to help block pain. I will continue to stand by my patients to do everything I can to help them, and if you should decide to return I will continue to do so for you as well. Dr. Phelps
Im sorry the injections did not work. We always try to perform conservative treatments first and avoid surgery. The dorsal column stimulator to which you refer has been an extremely valuable advancement for people who suffer from chronic pain or who I do not think that surgery is a good option. I do not sell them, I only implant the device, which is covered by insurance in most cases. If you would like to talk futher or speak with patients who have had a stimulator please let me know.
I appreciate the kind words. If there is anything I can do for you please dont hesistate to let me know. Dr Phelps
