Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GASTONIA, N.C. - May 12, 2018 - Planet TV Studios presents the restorative work of minimally invasive spinal treatments for patients suffering from intense back pain with Dr. William Hunter and special guest Nate “Rock” Quarry.
Dr. Hunter completed his residency at Georgetown Medical School and now works as a lecturer at Duke University while maintaining his practice at The Spine Clinic at Neuroscience & Spine Center of the Carolinas. He is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in the development and administering of microsurgical techniques. His innovative procedures have distinguished him as among the most highly recommended spinal surgeons in the nation.
Dr. Hunter lists back pain as among the top reasons Americans visit the doctor. The prevalence of spinal issues requires careful consideration by a patient’s family healthcare physician prior to undergoing surgery. Patients who have tried every other non-surgical treatment for their pain (to include massage therapy, lifestyle changes, chiropractic treatment, etc.) are the patients who seek help from medical professionals capable of providing the most advanced options in spinal technology.
Many remember the professional fighting career of accomplished athlete Nate “Rock” Quarry, yet few are aware of the role back pain played in halting his career and negatively impacting his personal life.
Fans remember Quarry from his appearance in “The Ultimate Fighter,” a reality show featuring UFC competitions. Born in California, Quarry did not find his passion for athletics and competition until his mid-twenties. The aggressive physical undertaking of his career took its toll on his body, but what may have ultimately led him to his doctor was much more personal.
When Quarry realized he could not pick up his young daughter Ciera without back pain, more than his athleticism was at stake. Quarry decided he had to take action to not only stay present in his personal life as the father he wanted to be to his child but also to continue to work in order to provide for his family.
Nate “Rock” Quarry’s doctor warned the back pain would persist throughout Quarry’s life without the delicate, advanced techniques of minimally invasive spinal surgery such as the procedures developed and taught nationwide by Dr. Hunter.
After trying pain medication, visiting a chiropractor and other non-surgical modalities, Quarry chose to undergo a minimally invasive spinal procedure to relieve the pressure causing pain in his back. His recovery time was swift and he was back in the training room and restored to his original quality of life a mere three months following the procedure.
Patients experiencing pain similar to Quarry’s have the chance to fully recover thanks to the minimally invasive techniques of Dr. Hunter. Depending on each individual case, Dr. Hunter may recommend techniques such as transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), lateral lumbar fusion or decompression laminectomy surgery.
