Trade-offs in Treating Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Consider the potential trade-offs of decompression alone and decompression with fusion in the surgical treatment of advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). There is no clear consensus on the appropriate treatment of advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. Many surgeons who treat advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis would agree there are trade-offs with the current treatment options they offer their LSS patients. They are aware of the possible under-treatment of care by performing a decompression alone, or potential over-treatment of care by performing a decompression with fusion.
Wouldn't surgeons—and their patients—want a solution that is efficacious, offers a quicker recovery, and improves the potential for predictable long-term outcomes that appropriately addresses this degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis patient population?
