Lower Back Surgery/Herniated Disc

G Baht

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnosed (via MRI) with a herniated disc in my lower back.  I'm about two months into a conservative treatment program and there has been some improvement in my symptoms.  However, in the event the conservative treatment fails, I'm beginning to research options for surgically removing the herniated portion of my lumbar disc via a microdiscectomy.   There are a few hospitals in Thailand that have "spine centers" that specialize in microdiscectomys...these hospitals appear to utilize the latest technology/equipment and the doctors have experience in the current surgical techniques for performing back surgery.  However, not much information seems to be available, particularly regarding patient feedback.  The only recommendations I've seen are for a spine surgeon at BNH.  Do any BMs have first-hand experience and/or recommendations for a spine surgeon in Bangkok or Pattaya?
