: Two other options: epiduroscopy with lysis of adhesions via Holmium YAG lasar or lasar foraminoplasty via endoscopic approach.
: I will be training to do the former in the next few months and the latter in April with a Dr. in Britain that has performed over 3,000 of these operations. When I find out the best in the world names, I will let you know. I will post here.
Dr. Whitworth, Thank you for a prompt and concise reply. I have had the epiduroscopy suggested recently and am going to see a DR that my pain management DR reffered me to as he has never performed one. Would you be kind enough to explain how epiduroscopy differs from razcs procedure. I could not find any good info on web.
Thank you for your time. Kim
: : Good day DR. Whitworth. I have cervical lumbar problems but right now lumbar is accute.I have had two laminectomys at L5S1. First one 15 years ago and second one in 1998. Have developoed acute radiculopathic pain caused by epidural fibrosis. This is shown in post OP MRI, CT and Myelogram and is also proven by obvious symptomology. Razcs Procedures failed to do the job. Have researched this much and think there may now be a way to surgicaly remove lesions from exit foraminae and free S1 nerve root of compression. In this day and age there must be a Dr. who knows how to do this and also prevent recurring fibrosis at same area. Please try to find info for me. My left leg is just like an artificicial limb right now. Very little strength in it. Atrophy has and is occurring. Pain is awfull. Need help soon, must get healthy and back to work. Thank you. Kim
