    A Good Orthopedic in 10118 area?
    dalgostu98 posted:
    Hello Everyone,
    I suffer from lower back pain for over 9 years now and it's been getting worse and worse.
    I have not had any luck with the doctors I have seen.
    Can anyone please let me know a good specialist that can make my pain get a little more manageable?

    I really appreciate any advice.

    thank you

    Sorry about the pain you are dealing with, but it is against WebMD's policy to recommend any doctor by name here on this site.

    Hi and welcome to the support group -

    WEBMD does, however, have a search engine that you can utilize to assist in finding professional physicians in your area.

    At the top of this page next to WEBMD is the search engine - just choose doctors and it will bring you to another page to input the criteria for your area.

    Also, if you live in or near a large city check out the university hospitals as they normally have the best spine physicians there.

    Please let us know more about what you have been thru, injuries, diagnosis, tests etc. We may be able to assist you in web pages to research.

    I think it is spam and I reported it. Spam or not, it is recommending a specific practice which is against the rules.
