Palmdale Surgery Center
Palmdale is a great place to raise a family. Separated from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles by the towering San Gabriel Mountains, it can seem a world away from all the hectic noise of the big city. However, it doesn’t mean you are far from the big city worries of back pain and chronic pain conditions.
Palmdale has a wealth of seniors in the area, and we at BASIC Spine cater to the back issues that sometimes occur with aging. For instance, if you are a senior, you may experience ruptured discs in your back that press on your nerves. This is because the discs lose water as you age and become brittle. This causes them to break and push on the nerves that run close to your spine, leading to conditions such as sciatica.
We believe in treating these conditions with the least invasive procedures first. For instance, we will have you consult with our practice chiropractor, William Leach, D.C., to adjust your spine and conduct physical therapy. Dr. Leach is a Southern California native and was trained at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, so he knows well the problems of the back and the needs of southern California patients.
Sometimes, especially as you age, back surgery may be necessary. BASIC Spine does not believe in jumping immediately to spinal fusions and discectomies, but if necessary, you could not find a better group of spinal surgeons in the southern California area.
Our practice leader, Dr. G. "Ty" Thaiyananthan, was trained at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and he is on the forefront of new technologies in back surgery. He is pioneering minimally invasive endoscopic back surgery and stem cell injections. He is joined in the practice by Dr. Bryan Oh, who was educated at Stanford University, and Lytton A. Williams, M.D., who was educated at Cornell. As you can see, this group of highly sought after professionals are among the best in the field of spinal surgery.
Aging can also lead to other chronic pain conditions. For instance, osteoarthritis in the spine is a common side effect from aging, but it can really affect any joint in the body, such as the knees, shoulders, and ankles. You need a doctor who knows how to treat chronic pain, and you could not do better than our very own Dr. Sheba Jilani. She was educated at the University of California, Los Angeles, and she can help you with pain medications and injections to help you with any chronic pain syndrome. We see people with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis who need our help managing their pain.
In addition, we understand that chronic pain can take a toll on you mentally and can adversely affect the high desert lifestyle. We have seen many patients experience depression and anxiety from their chronic pain syndromes. That’s why we have a psychologist who specializes in pain on our roster. Pavan Mann, Ph.D. can help you with psychotherapy and give you new ways to cope with the condition that you are facing. BASIC Spine understands that a patient needs to be treated holistically to heal completely.
If you live in the Palmdale area, you have access to many spinal and pain practices in Los Angeles, but you don’t need them. BASIC Spine is your one stop, minimally invasive, cutting edge practice that can serve all of your back and pain management needs. Contact us today for a consultation about your condition, and let us help you!
