Second Opinion


Have you been advised that you are a candidate for back or neck surgery? Did you know that you may have other options? You owe it to yourself to explore the alternatives.

Dr. Phil Striano offers free consultation and evaluation. Take advantage of this offer because you might be a candidate for disk decompression.

Disk Decompression might save you from unnecessary and possibly harmful surgery. It has for many of the doctor's patients. If the doctor determines that you are not a candidate for disk decompression he will be happy to refer you for further help.

Failed Back or Neck Surgery Syndrome

Failed back or neck surgery is a common enough occurrence that it has become the subject of numerous studies in the medical community. So common that it has been given a medical label, the Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (also called FBSS, or failed back syndrome). FBSS is also sometimes used to describe failed neck surgery (also called failed neck surgery syndrome).

It is interesting to note that there is no equivalent term for in any other type of surgery (e.g. there is no failed cardiac surgery syndrome, failed hip surgery syndrome, etc.).

If you are considering back or neck surgery you should understand the possible repercussions. Elective surgery should be entered into with as much knowledge as possible. The web is the ideal place to do your research. Just do a web search on "Failed Back and Neck Surgery Syndrome".

For some patients, surgery is ultimately necessary. However, because of the associated complications and low success rate, it should only be considered when all other options have been exhausted.
