About 5 years ago I was in a lot of pain with a liquid filled cyst pressing on a nerve.I was sent to physical therapy,then pain management nothing I did was any relief.I wound up with Dr.Spurgas.He made the diagnosis with MRI. Recommended same day surgery,but stated he had only done that procedure on 3 people and there was a possibility it would come back.I followed his recommendation.I went in to AMCH in AM left in the evening and have not had a pain since..THANK YOU Dr Spurgas

I am unfamiliar with your exact situation, but it is possible that things could have changed since you saw Dr Spurgas (years ago)and when you recently sought a second opinion. It is possible that the recent changes in hardware seen on CT scan really werent visible on the studies done in what sounds like 2005 or possibly 2006 by Dr. Spurgas. It doesnt mean that Dr. Spurgas was incorrect in his recommendations at that time.

I had surgery on 11/8/2010 and Dr. Spurgas had to remove some of the bone surrounding the nerve at L3-4. I was in agony and now am like a new man since, so he has my recommendation.
