NECK & BACK INJURY LAWYERS-CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF DENIED BY MD’S.
NECK & BACK INJURY LAWYERS at the Schmidt Salida lot team are very familiar with the symptoms of chronic pain that result from neck and back injuries.
Respected medical literature indicates that, in 60% of the cases of chronic neck and back pain resulting from whiplash type injury, injury to the facet joint is the cause of that pain.
It is quite clear the Radiofrequency Neurotomy (Ablation), also known as Rhizotomy, can provide significant pain relief for nearly 90% of those case. RFNs are being done at every single one of the top 5 medical schools in the US, as rated by US News and World Report.
Yet, most orthopedic surgeon and many neurologists fail to recommend RFN treatment to their patients with chronic neck and back pain. Recently the head of the largest orthopedic surgery group in Minnesota testified under oath that his group, consisting of 125 orthopedic surgeons does not prescribe RFNs-not a single one, he says.
Recently, a neurosurgeon with over 30 years of practice in Mason City, Iowa testified under oath that he knows that RFNs are being prescribed for the chronic neck and back pain at Mayo Clinic, at the University of Iowa, the University of Minnesota and every single top medical school in the country. Notwithstanding, he testified that he has never offered that treatment to a single patient!!!
This neglect is a square violation of the Oath of Hippocrates that most doctors consider their most basic code of honor!!!
The Neck & Back Injury lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team work with medical doctors that are knowledgeable with regard to pain medicine and will offer the victims of chronic pain the treatment that they need and deserve.
