Let’s face it. In some cases surgery is needed. How can we tell that surgery is needed? Are surgeons all about getting you under the knife? What is recovery like? We interview Dr. Abbasi Neurosurgeon and teacher of the minimally invasive OLIF technique. This episode covers why surgery is indicated, the process, and the recovery. His first answer to pain is to not go through surgery which is something that I really appreciate. Dr. Abbasi has centers all throughout the country.
