ORANGE CITY, Fla., April 29, 2014 – On April 24, more than 30 community members joined Florida Hospital Fish Memorial at the DeBary Golf and Country Club for “Talk Back to Pain,” a free seminar on back pain.
Presented by Florida Hospital Fish Memorial’s board certified orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Stephane Lavoie, attendees learned about comprehensive spine and orthopaedic treatments.
“Osteoporosis is a public health problem,” Lavoie said. “Only a third of fractures will cause enough pain for someone to go to the doctor and fractures among the vertebrae can truly affect one's wellbeing.”
As the first fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon in the Sanford and West Volusia area, Lavoie explained to the audience that surgery is always the last option; before resulting to surgery, patients with back pain should try physical therapy or injections.
