As we age, the spine changes, often leading to a degeneration of the vertebrae (bones), discs, muscles and ligaments (connective tissues) that together make up the spinal column. These changes lead to spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal. As the spinal canal narrows, it puts pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots.
Join SOS spine surgeon Justin Iorio, MD, on Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., to learn more about the latest surgical and non-operative options to get you back doing the things you love.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. It will be held at 5000 Brittonfield Parkway, East Syracuse. Free parking is available and light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Iorio will discuss the signs and symptoms of spinal stenosis, treatment options (surgical and non-surgical) and results of surgery.
