Attend your consultation
Mr Masood Shafafy will discuss with you your medical history and symptoms. He will begin the process of identifying potential causes for your discomfort. From there, he will discuss next steps in the diagnostic process and schedule a follow-up appointment to begin performing pertinent tests *some tests can be done on the same day.
The process of diagnosing a spinal condition can be fairly elaborate, depending on your circumstances and the suspected cause of your symptoms. In most cases it will involve a full examination, imaging tests such as MRI scans and diagnostic tests.
Once Mr Shafafy has obtained a definitive diagnosis, he will typically begin with conservative treatment approaches in an attempt to resolve your condition in the least invasive way possible these could include steroid injections, physical therapy or chiropractic treatment.
If conservative treatments are not successful in restoring your pain-free lifestyle, surgery may be necessary. In this case, Mr Shafafy will discuss with you your options and review the risks, benefits, and expected outcomes of the proposed procedure.
After your procedure we provide extensive aftercare and recovery to help you get the most from your treatment.
