New Slidell Clinic Offers Latest Technology to Treat Patients With Spinal Problems

SLIDELL, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/16/08 -- Dr. James Butler, who has practiced orthopedic surgery in Slidell and the greater New Orleans area for over twenty years, has recently opened a new office devoted to treating patients with spinal disorders. The clinic, Southern Spine Care, located at 1570 Lindberg Drive in Slidell, Louisiana offers the latest technology to treat patients with spinal problems.

"Fortunately, most patients with neck and back pain don't need surgery, but their condition needs to be properly evaluated and diagnosed. Usually some combination of rest, exercise and medication will suffice for most adults. Not all treatments work for everyone or are appropriate for everyone," said Dr. Butler. "Patients and their doctors have to weigh very heavily the pros and cons of each option and have realistic expectations for pain relief and function."

One of the major advancements in spine surgery is the Image-guided Surgery System. This complex computer system uses the same concept as the Global Positioning System in many vehicles. By using traditional x-ray, an infrared camera, and specially designed tools, Dr. Butler can precisely track each piece of hardware placed in the spine. This results in quicker surgery time and more accurate hardware placement. Having helped develop and refine the Image-guided Surgery System, Dr. Butler is very skillful in the art of image-guided spine surgery. Dr. Butler has more experience in performing fluoroscopic navigation spinal surgery than any other doctor in this area and has used this system on a regular basis for over 10 years.

Dr. Butler will be treating patients with a variety of neck and back problems including disc herniations, adult deformities such as scoliosis and degenerative disc disease (DDD). According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), degenerative disc disease of the back and neck affects about 12 million people in the U.S. Americans spend more than $50 billion each year on back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability and missed work. According to the NIH, the only ailment more common than back pain is headaches.

For the estimated 5 percent of patients with chronic, long-term neck and back pain, Dr. Butler, who was selected by other orthopedic surgeons as one of the top orthopedic doctors in the New Orleans area in 2006 and 2007 by New Orleans Magazine, is able to offer his patients the latest in technological advances in the treatment of spinal problems, especially artificial disc replacement and spinal fusion surgery.

Dr. James Butler is a leading expert in back and spine surgery who has the patience to help people navigate their choices when it comes to treatment of their spinal problem whether it involves waiting for it to go away, physical therapy, over-the-counter or prescription medication, traditional spinal surgery, or even one of the newest techniques, artificial disc replacement.
