Dr. Robert Young M.D. has had a career that has stretched over the last 30 years. He graduated from the renowned Johns Hopkins Medical School as one of the schools youngest graduates receiving his M.D. at the age of 22. He entered into and completed his surgical residency and has performed over 11,000 surgeries throughout his career.
Dr. Young states that as Medical Director for the Non-Surgical Spine Care Center “I have a true appreciation for good medicine and the power of good surgeons to save lives. I will have to say though that as far as we have advanced in medicine; our advancements have been very slow when it comes to the care of the injured disc.
Surgery in my opinion has shown a poor effectiveness towards reducing pain and in some cases even causing more pain and disability than prior to the surgery. Other types of disc injury care such as epidural injections, narcotic pain medication, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and even acupuncture seem to also have little or no long term affect in creating pain relief.
Through our course of care I could not be happier to see the results that we are achieving treating the cause of the patient’s problems, not just their symptoms, and doing so without the use of injections, medication, or even surgery.”
