As a spinal surgeon I believe in treating the patient and his/her symptoms, not the findings on the MRI or X-ray. I will correlate the patient's history to my findings on physical examination as well as the films to create a plan for the patient. Not everybody has the same symptoms or symptoms at all from the same MRI findings so it is important to discover and treat the real issues so they may be addressed appropriately.
