New Hope For Victims Of Back Pain

October 3, 2018

It was with much excitement that I read the article in the Toronto Star headlined: Renowned spine surgeon is transforming the way Ontario deals with back pain.

It looked at how a world-renowned Canadian surgeon has been at the forefront of a new way to treat people suffering from back pain.

This ailment is one of the most common for those recovering after a car accident.  Too often people have to wait (sometimes years!) to see a specialist to discover if they require surgery.

In this innovative program, by surgeon Dr. Raj Rampersaud, patients were able to be seen faster at what are called “rapid assessment clinics”.

In fact, more than 7,000 patients have been treated in Ontario with the average wait time to get into a clinic of only 12 days!

Congratulations to Dr. Raj Rampersaud and thank you to the Toronto Star for highlighting this important advancement and offering hope for the many people who are having to suffer unnecessary pain every day.
