Looking for a long-term non-surgical therapy to treat chronic back pain?
Chronic back pain can become complex and has many causes. Istituto Auxologico Italiano, Milan, Italy, one of Italy’s premier centers for open heart surgery, robotic surgery and minimally invasive treatments is now offering a safe and minimally invasive therapy for relieving chronic back pain called video-guided epidural neurolysis.
