Health in Focus: Jagannathan Neurosurgery “Adjacent Level Disease”
Leg pain, cramping, back pain, and weakness are all symptoms of adjacent level disease.
In this week’s business in focus with Dr. Jay Jagannathan, we learned all about how to diagnose adjacent level disease.
It is when the mobile spinal levels surrounding a spinal fusion sees additional stress when motion is restricted across the fusion.
It occurs over a course of years and not all patients experience symptoms.
The possible operations include, observation, physical therapy, steroid injections, and in some cases, surgery.
You should seek medical attention for surgery if you are experiencing refractory symptoms, weakness, and decreased quality of life.
