Before discussing post surgery Dr. Khodabakhsh wants to stress the importance of making surgery your last resort. Always review your options and try conservative natural treatments before going under the knife. Once you have surgery you cannot reverse it but if you have tried conservative treatment and for some reason, you find yourself not getting better you can then do surgery. Surgeries are so delicate and complex, there are several risk factors involved. Some patients have great success with surgery and many do not. Dr. Khodabakhsh will further aid you in mobility and pain relief after surgery. You must remember that just because you have surgery doesn’t mean you are cured of all pain. Many times you have to do extensive physical therapy to get back to being 100% and Dr. Khodabakhsh will help get you there.
