Corrective Action may be Necessary After Surgery

When you decide in favor of a surgical procedure, it’s your hope that everything goes as planned. It’s also your hope that the end result allows you to regain full control of your health.

Unfortunately, things don’t always work out this way. There’s always a chance that some type of corrective action could be necessary in the future. And that’s not something you should hide from.

We recently consulted with a patient who previously had spinal surgery, but wasn’t experiencing the relief he was seeking.

Here’s what the patient had to say:

Dr. Sharma performed a 1 level bone fusion as corrective action to a previous surgery from another surgeon. Dr. Sharma gained a full understanding of the previous spine fusion failure and explained his plan to correct. I agreed with his view of the situation and he performed a successful surgery ( 16 weeks ago). 95 percent of the pain is gone and no more need for ibuprofen anymore!!! I’m back to full activity and I would recommend to my closet friend

It’s hard to get your head around the idea that your first surgery didn’t correct your problem, but don’t let that stop you from seeking help. Corrective action may be necessary.
