After suffering severe lower back pain for several years my family doctor finally recommended seeing a neurologist/Neurosurgeon. I searched on internet for best neurosurgeons in Lahore/Pakistan and was lucky enough to find about Dr. Waqas Mehdi. After quickly and accurately diagnosing my degenerative disc disease he told me about my options. There was a small piece of my disc that was crushing a nerve against my vertebrae. He recommended surgery to trim the small piece of disc away from the nerve but also explained that with degenerative disc disease the disc slowly degenerates and that there were signs of degeneration of other disc. I decided to go ahead with the surgery as the pain was becoming unbearable. When I awoke from anesthesia I was pain free, I went back to normal life after 4 days and joined my office/job! Based on my experience, I will advise other patients that if they feel signs of degeneration of disc, do not make more delay, consult a neuro physician or neurosurgeon as soon as possible, if your spine doctor suggest surgery, go for it without worry about damage of bone issues as far as your spine surgeon is Dr. Waqas Mehdi. My back pain is gone and I'm living a normal life, blessings of having Dr. Waqas as my spine surgeon!
