Herniated Disc Back Surgery: Lumbar Fusion

Doctors often recommend posterior lumbar fusion to get the best results for workers with herniated discs.  Posterior (back side) lumbar fusion is the most common type of back surgery fusion for the low back.  Surgery should never be the first option or ever taken lightly.  But if fusion surgery is necessary, it is important to have lawyers knowledgeable about the medicine as well as the law.  Most of the injured workers seeking workers compensation benefits represented by McCormick Law Office attorneys have had cervical or lumbar fusions.

Herniated Disc Back Surgery: Discectomy

Herniated disc back surgery discectomy is often recommended for injured workers with serious neck or low back pain.  To get the best results employees seeking workers' compensation benefits represented by McCormick Law Office attorneys should be fully informed of their options by doctors.  This blog is a summary of surgical procedures in lay terms, a starting point, and not a substitute for medical advice. Wisconsin workers, particularly in the Milwaukee area, are fortunate to have the highest rated surgeons and hospitals for their workers compensation injury care and treatment.

Herniated Disc Back Surgery Laminectomy

Herniated disc back surgery laminectomy is often recommended for injured workers with wear and tear spinal stenosis.  Workers' compensation insurance company doctors usually say spinal stenosis is a degenerative condition unrelated to an injured worker's job dutiesMcCormick Law Office attorneys seek the best results for injured workers and we do not accept the insurance company denial based on an independent medical exam or IME.  Spinal stenosis can result from a work-related disc bulging into the spinal canal or bone spurs aggravating the nerves causing pain.
