Re: Understanding MRI Results?

Just be sure that the dr. you are referred to is a spine specialist. There is a vast difference between an Ortho and an Orthopedic Spine Specialist. A spine specialist, both neurosurgeon and Ortho specialist treat only spine issues and don't do hips, knees, etc. This insures that you will be getting a doctor with training and experience in the spine.

Please stay in touch.
