    oldmanriver1956 posted:
    Hello, has anyone recently had accu scope surgery done by North American Spine Institute in Dallas. I am having severe pain in left hip, back of thigh and knee. NSI said after looking at MRI they could successfully treat my bulge at L-5 L-4 and L-3. If anyone has any information about the Dallas clinic, please respond. Thank you and God Bless You

    Hi and welcome to the support group ~~

    Unfortunately, WEBMD's guidelines state we cannot list anything relating to personal information/professional physicians/hospitals etc. this is outlined when you set up your account.

    what I can tell you is that you really should read they entire website especially the part of finance of surgeries. when doing this you should be able to GOOGLE info relating to the specific office and also pros/cons from the surgery to the clinic.

    I don't know if this is the only place you have gone to but when surgery is stated as a corrected means you should always get a 2nd and sometimes even a 3rd opinion from either a Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist. Surgery should be the last resort after all treatments have failed.

    Please keep us posted what you find out~~
