Risks or Complications
Treatment results are different for each patient and early diagnosis can contribute to a better chance of successful treatment.
Dr Tollesson will discuss your radiology with you during your consultation and present you with your treatment options, which may include conservative treatment in the form of physiotherapy, pain management, pain injection or surgical treatment with either instrumented or non-instrumented surgery, depending on your diagnosis.
Dr Tollesson is a valued member of the AOSpine society. Please refer to their website for more information at www.aofoundation.org
No surgery is without risk. Therefore it is important that you are informed about your treatment options, as well as about the possible risks that could occur as a result of surgery. It is important for you to be able to ask questions and feel confident that surgery is the right option for you before proceeding. Therefore we recommend that you book an additional pre-surgical consultation if you feel that you would like to discuss your surgery and recovery in further detail with Dr Tollesson before proceeding.
