There is NO data supporting a lumbar fusion for low back pain.  However, the rate of it keeps rising and it is costing the U.S. 40 billion dollars annually!  Dr. David Hanscom quit his complex spinal surgery practice to dedicate his life to stopping unnecessary and harmful surgeries and ending chronic pain.

Dr. David Hanscom is an orthopedic complex spinal deformity surgeon who was base in Seattle, WA.  He quit his practice and is on a mission to re-introduce true healing into medicine.  He believes that doctors should spend quality time with their patients so they can listen and understand their situation.  He is the author of Back in Control: A Surgeon's Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain, and his most recent book is Do You Really Need Spine Surgery: Take Control With a Spine Surgeon's Advice.
