Mr.ABR , 47 yrs young welder had been suffering from upper back pain due to calcified disc prolapse for a long time causing severe nerve pain in both his legs while walking.
His scans showed a calcified disc at L1/2 causing Severe Lumbar Canal Stenosis . He underwent Orthopaedic Spine Surgery L1/2 TLIF ( Decompression and Fusion Spine Surgery ).
He was able to walk pain free the very next day and was quite pleased with the outcome of his Spine Surgery.
** Upper lumbar disc herniations especially L1/2 level have been reported to occur with a frequency of less than 1% of all disc herniations. Early diagnosis and appropriate procedure in selected patients give good clinical results.
