There are different types of Spinal Stenosis. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis affects the spinal nerves in the lower back and is common. Cervical Stenosis affects the nerves in the neck and often causes myelopathy, or compression of the cervical spinal cord. Cervical Stenosis is more severe and common in elderly patients.
Spinal Stenosis can be caused by natural wear and tear of the ligaments due to aging. Other causes of Spinal Stenosis are Arthritis, a back injury or traumatic accident.

I have been going to theThe Spine & Rehab Group Center now for 3 years. I have a Spondylolysis and have had multiple treatments by Dr. Hosny with different spinal injections and various treatments. My biggest success for the reduction of pain is the Radio Frequency Ablation. The effects was a major reduction of pain lasting for well over a year, and I am presently seeking to having the procedure done again. Until a major break throught is a total success on back surgery, the RFA shots will be my success story for back pain reduction. Thank you Dr. Hosny!Barry Van Zile ★★★★★
I recently had radiofreguency oblation on my knee for bone on bone arthritis, it is like a miracle! No pain in my knee and my mobility is so much better which helps my back. The staff at The Spine and Rehab Group are the best! Friendly, caring and very professional. Dr. Hosny and Dr. Chu really care about their patients. Dr. Hosny is meticulous in his treatment protocol which protects you, his patient from the chance of infection or other complications. My recoomendation to anyone with severe knee pain is make an appointment to see Dr. Hosny or Dr. Chu, no need to suffer anymore...Valerie Burde
