L5-s1 shows annular tear and a central protrusion touching both s1 roots and thecal sac. No effacement or deformity. Nerve roots exit normally.

Your question is?: If the disc is worsening and causing weakness, muscular atrophy and/or numbness, and especially if initiation of urination is troublesome, need to have a spinal surgeon involved. Otherwise, conservative therapies may be successful. An EMG test may determine extent of nerve damage at this point and act as a baseline. ...Read more

What is mild spondylosis without small right para central osteophyte & a tiny central disk protrusion with significant thecal sac deformity at C3-4?

What is mild spondylosis without small right para central osteophyte & a tiny central disk protrusion with significant thecal sac deformity at C3-4?

Arthritis: Mild spondylosis = mild aging changes (aka arthritis). Tiny disc protrusion is just what it sounds like. Small right paracentral osteophyte = small bone spur just to the right. With a tiny disk protrusion, I'm betting the report says "without" significant thecal sac deformity, which means no significant pressure on the spinal cord. In a 47 yo patient, all this would be considered normal. ...Read more

Can a pectus deformity be corrected?

Can a pectus deformity be corrected?

Pectum chest contour: Pectum deformities can be minor and only have aesthetic concerns like a bulge or a concavity vs those with a significant functional element as well. The latter ones are corrected by essentially cutting out the depressed area in the pectum excavatum cases and expanding the chest. While the aesthetic cases can be dealt with by what I call camouflage procedures. Consult with your local plastic surgeon. ...Read more
