Dr Niraj Vasavada, Head of Department – Spine and Dr Pratik Lodha, Consultant Spine Surgeon addressed the media and disseminated valuable information on Spine management, dispelling may myths prevalent about back pain and Spine Surgery. According to these experts, 80% of Back Pain can be controlled or cured non-operatively. Only 20% of the people suffering from back pain may be needing a Spine Surgery.
