It is unfortunately not uncommon for patients to suffer persistent pain following spine fusion surgery. Removing the BGSpulse generator will not provide relief in patients with failed back surgery syndrome. If the WC ins carrier did not authorize surgery , the patient could have used group insurance coverage , also the hospital will not routinely allow surgeons to perform ELECTIVE procedures w/o insurance or a payment plan . As of 2012 I was no longer in practice in Joliet.

It is office policy that patients coming in for the initial visit and those that do not have recent imaging be seen by the PA. Did you attempt another appointment.
