VAX-D: Before and After Surgery

Surgery—Know the Risks

In some cases, surgery may be the only option, but most medical professionals and even surgeons would agree that non-invasive options should be explored before turning to surgery.  Although advances in surgery have made many procedure less invasive and more effective, surgery comes with inherent associated risks such as infection, clotting, and scarring.  Combined with high costs and lengthy recovery time, it only makes sense to consider all of your options before deciding to have surgery.

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome is an actual term used when pain and loss of mobility persist long after surgery.  According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, there are approximately 200,000 laminectomies performed every year many of these operations reported to be unsuccessful.  A laminectomy removes bone and thickened tissue that is narrowing the spinal canal and squeezing the spinal cord and nerve roots.

The so called “minimally  invasive surgery, laser, scalpel procedures, involve ripping out of ligament, bone and tissue, even before the knife or laser goes in!! This causes permanent damage in many cases, but they wont tell you that!! Plus all that they are doing is snipping off a piece of the disc, not really addressing the cause of the problem, the compression on the spine and discs.

Great News for Post-Surgical Patients!

Post-surgical patients who still suffer from pain have experienced positive therapeutic results from VAX-D.    If you have had surgery with unsatisfactory results or have suffered a relapse, consult your doctor about the possible benefits of VAX-D.

* post-surgical patients with low back hardware may qualify for cervical treatment, and patients that have had surgery with hardware in the cervical area may qualify for lumbar treatment.  This is to be determined on an individual basis.

I had undergone surgery on my L4-L5 disc. Unfortunately, VAX-D was not yet available in the US.

Soon after surgery, I ruptured my L5-S1 disc, which is a common occurrence after surgery due to increased motion and stress. Eventually I was able to acquire a VAX-D table and I was the first patient. I have done fine since that time. No more surgery.”

VAX-D: Published Credibility

The definitive reference textbook on “The Practice of Minimally Invasive Techniques,” published by the College of Physicians Publishing Division, has an editorial board comprised of several world-renowned orthopedic surgeons.

Chapter 35 of the 2005 edition of this text focuses exclusively on VAX-D.  The summary concludes that, “VAX-D should not be considered traction in the traditional sense but as decompression.  VAX-D is the only non-invasive treatment that has been proven to decompress the disc; with other traction devices, there has been only indirect proof.”

I injured my back lifting a suitcase and initially found brief relief with traction exercises. Persistent pain led me to reveal a herniated L5-S1 disc. Starting VAX-D treatment immediately, my pain dropped significantly after the first session. A month into treatment, I traveled abroad for a semester, enduring a long flight and extensive walking across Europe pain-free, thanks to VAX-D and Dr. Pete.

Very friendly staff! Jennifer is very welcoming and efficient at the front desk. Then April, the doctors assistant is always friendly, no matter how busy she is. She knows her stuff and makes you feel comfortable throughout your treatment and checks on you to make sure all is well the whole time . Dr. Peduzzi is very knowledgeable, professional and he has helped me with my neck problems. He has me well in the way to recovery.

Extremely friendly staff, including the front desk and the chiro assistant. Polite, welcoming and they care about their patients. Dr. Peduzzi is very thorough when explaining any type of treatment. He makes sure that each patient is well taken care of. The other thing I love is that the practice strives to use all natural products when it comes to their supplements, creams, and sprays. Thank you for the amazing care.

Even though I have only been going to Dr. Peduzzi for a few weeks, I am so much better. They pain was just awful from disc compression. I could not get in or out of bed for weeks. I am out of the recliner and back to bed at night without the lightning bolt pain I had. I look forward to each treatment because it is relaxing and it is working.
