Bertolotti's syndrome

Anyone ever heard of this? My sister who's involved in health stuff said I might have it. Has anyone ever had this or heard of it? I can't seem to find anything about it anywhere...

Re: Bertolotti's syndrome

I've never heard of it, but a google search came up with the following:

Bertolotti's syndrome is mechanical low back pain associated with lumbosacral transitional vertebrae and are common in the general population.

Treatment is controversial, especially surgical. In one series, injections gave transient relief, but the response from injections did not predict a successful surgery. Most patients who had surgery still had some pain postoperatively
In one report, surgical removal of an abnormal facet joint articulation resulted in a good outcome

You could always seek consulatation with a back specialist or surgeon to see if there are any other options to local injections


There were other listings as well to check out. Good luck.

2 lami's, 3 fusions
bone spur removal
cerv. fusion, 1 level
morphine pump
