Spinal stenosis, a condition characterized by the narrowing of spaces within your spine, can cause significant pain and discomfort.
Understanding who treats spinal stenosis and how it is managed is crucial for those diagnosed with this condition.
The Right Treatment for Spinal Stenosis Begins with the Diagnosis
The journey begins with a proper diagnosis. Spinal stenosis often involves symptoms like pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and in severe cases, problems with bowel or bladder control. These symptoms necessitate a visit to a healthcare professional who can diagnose the condition accurately. Typically, primary care physicians or neurologists are the first to assess these symptoms. They may use imaging tests like MRI or CT scans to confirm the diagnosis.

Hear from Ahmad, a patient who recently received treatment for spinal stenosis by Dr. Saadat:
I had a bad case of central stenosis with progressive symptoms of leg pain and limited mobility for past two years. I tried all possible non-surgical options with no resolution to my leg pain and limited mobility. I eventually decided to do the surgery with Dr Saadat based on reviews and after an appointment with him where he explained my case and the surgery option and what to expect from it. Dr. Saadat did the surgery which is bilateral Laminotomy for my L4-L5 4 weeks ago. I am feeling great and had no nerve pain right after the surgery. I am walking now as much as I want and going through the planned recovery. D. Saddat is a top surgeon and a nice guy too who cares and answers any question (he evens responds to text and email questions). In addition, he has great staff (Aubrie) who helped with getting insurance approval, medical leave forms and surgery scheduling. – Ahmad via Google
