Back pain and neurosurgery podcast – Mina Safain, MD and Marie Roguski, MD

In the US up to 84% of adults will suffer low back pain at some point in their life and 1.5% of all physician visits are for low back pain. Neurosurgeons Mina Safain, MD and Marie Roguski, MD, discuss the common issue of back pain – who gets it and why, and the many different treatment options (surgical and nonsurgical) available to offer relief to those who suffer with back pain. They also discuss the importance of having advanced neurosurgery options locally at a community hospital setting.
