Cerisea Medica

There's so much to coordinate Cerisea Medica Review when it comes to surgery in the US or overseas. I just don't know where to start.It can be daunting - and typically in the US you are sort of on your own. That said there are some health tourism organizations that assign a Personal Patient Coordinator to you from day 1. This person handles ALL logistics - from air travel arrangements, to surgical scheduling, to post-surgery accommodations, to rehabilitation schedules. In fact, they'll keep you company should you need to speak to someone and they'll even meet you at the airport. They'll probably become your friend!Degenerative Spondylolisthesis is a spinal condition that results in one vertebrae slipping on the one below it. The resulting pain may be situated in the back or the legs from spinal stenosis. The condition is not life threatening and can be treated nonoperatively. It is a quality of life decision when it comes to operative intervention. Typically the slippage occurs of L4 on L5, but it can be at multiple levels as well.If nonoperative treatments fail, surgery is offered as a last resort. The typical spine surgery for degenerative spondylolisthesis involves a decompressive surgery to free up any nerves that are being pinched. This is called a decompressive laminectomy. In addition to freeing up nerves, the surgery usually involves stabilizing the one vertebrae on the other. This is done with a spinal fusion and may involve screws and rods placed in the bones on one or both sides of the unstable level.It is not necessary to reduce the slippage as freeing up the nerve roots directly will decompression the pinching and often times it is more trouble than its worth. In addition, bone graft material is placed on each side of the spine in order to facilitate fusion of one level to another.
