When interventional pain specialist Steven E. Levine, MD, himself a spine doctor and medical director of a medical practice in Indiana, needed treatment for lower back pain, he knew exactly what kind of treatment he needed and whom to approach to perform the delicate procedure.
Dr. Levine’s extensive experience with back pain as a spine specialist taught him that while traditional back surgery would most certainly relieve his back pain immediately, the relief would only be temporary and would open himself up for more complications in the future.
Dr. Levine wanted a specialist who would do the spinal decompression procedure he required in the least invasive way, so he opted for treatment at Spine Institute Northwest from Doctor Solomon Kamson, who specializes in minimally invasive spine procedures.
After Dr. Levine’s procedure, he slept well and was up and walking the next day with a small Band-Aid on his back the only indication that he underwent surgery the previous day.
Of his decision to have his procedure done by Dr. Kamson, Dr. Levine says, “Dr. Kamson is one of the few physicians that I know in the United States that can do what needs to be done less invasively.”
“Some of the best doctors who can do this are not in the United States, they are in China, France, Korea, England, or Germany.”
Of Dr. Kamson’s bedside manner, Dr. Levine opines that Doctor Kamson “really cares about his patients” and adds that Dr, Kamson “has taken the time to travel the world to educate himself.”
