Spinal Stenosis

person-avatar

Aoa. My mother is DM-2 on insulin, Hypertensive, Stage 2 renal failiure (taking medicine regularly so all conditions in control). She developed pain lower back radiating to left leg since 1 month. pain sharp, localized and associated with movements. pain is relieved while sitting or resting (lying on bed ). She is taking Tablet. Gabapil 75mg BD and other pain killers advised by local General Practitioners but seems not helping much. X-ray and MRI shows narrowing of L4,L5 spaces and nerves compressed. Went to local pain clinic and Doctor recommended Laser procedures for decompressing nerves. Name of procedure is "Transforming Nerve root Procedure and Intradiscal Laser (rf) for 50,000 rupees. Can any Neurosurgeon Please comment on this treatment. Should we go for it or go to neurosurgeon for conventional Nerve decompressing surgeries. Thanks in advance.

There are a few things that would need clarification
Does the pain increase on walking?
Does it reduce upon bending forward?
Has the patient developed any weakness in terms of paralysis?
or any numbness?
The MRI IMAGES are not shared.
only then can it be decided weither she's a surgical candidate or not?
