Ninety percent of adults suffer from back pain. Are you one of them?
Ingalls Advanced Orthopedic Institute invites you to come hear renowned orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. George S. Miz discuss the causes, diagnosis and treatment options of lower back pain at a free presentation to be held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20, at the Tony Bettenhausen Recreation Center in Tinley Park. Dr. Miz is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with over 25 years of experience, and was recently named a “Top Doctor” by U. S. News.
Dr. Miz is renowned both nationally and internationally for his expertise with the artificial disc. Always on the leading edge, Dr. Miz participates in a multitude of clinical trials, enabling him to offer advanced technologies and approaches to his patients, sometimes three to four years before they become available to the general public. He is also experienced in treating herniated discs, spine deformities, sciatica, tumors and other spinal conditions.
Learn about the underlying causes of lower back pain, discover how a proper diagnosis is made to pinpoint the cause and understand the medical treatment options that include pain management, medications and therapy. Dr. Miz will also explore some of the most advanced surgical treatment options available for a full range of spine disorders.
Minimally invasive techniques like the X-stop procedure, lumbar fusion and vertebroplasty reduce risks associated with treatment and eliminate painful symptoms. What’s more, microsurgery and complex procedures are offered right at Ingalls, so you don’t have to travel far from home.
