I have a particular interest in disc surgery, whether its cervical or lumbar. It’s something I’ve done very well and have had very good results with for a long time. The people who trained me also taught me a lot of tricks and methods to try to avoid having recurrences or complications and problems. Disc herniations are very disabling to people, and only a small portion of them will require operations, so, of course, you have to be good at taking care of the patients non-operatively and only operate on the ones who should do well, and will do well, from surgery.
