Over the course of 29 years of practice, I have had to refer some patients for back or neck surgery. Yes, there are times when surgery is the best option after all other options have been exhausted. I feel fortunate to have Dr. Bruce Cook, neurosurgeon at New England Neurological in Lawrence and Lowell, as someone I can send my patients to for a thorough neurological consult. He is not quick to recommend surgery. He is honest and will let them know if he thinks surgery can help them or not.
If surgery is necessary, after the appropriate recommended healing has taken place, patients can return safely back for their chiropractic care to help maintain their spine. For further information please feel free to reach out, as I am happy to talk. Feel free to give me a call at 978-686-7791.
