Try manual osteopathy before surgery

Dr Mehrdad Darvish an orthopedic surgeon with post specialty fellowship in ankle & foot surgery from Germany is one of our osteopathy students.

In a post published recently, Dr Darvish mentions that since incorporating osteopathic care into his surgical practice, the number of surgeries as well as injections in his practice has decreased which not only decreases risks, surgical complications and pain for patients; it also reduces health care costs.
Osteopathy does wonders in treating chronic pain. Physicians & surgeons can cut a large number of invasive medical procedures by adding osteopathic care to their practices.

Here is the post from Dr Darvish:

I am Dr. Mehrdad Dervish, an orthopedic specialist from the University of Shahid Beheshti in Tehran, and a foot and ankle surgery, fracture and sports injury fellowship from Germany.

From 2012, I became acquainted with the discipline of osteopathy. Osteopathy is very effective in improving chronic pain, and can be very helpful in cases such as chronic low back pain or shoulder pain, and even pelvic and knee pain that do not respond to common treatments.

I use these techniques in my surgical practice to decrease the risk of surgery and its complications on my patients. These techniques can lower the cost of treatments for patients and eliminate potential dangers of surgery, such as infection and bleeding, anesthesia and hospitalization.

Patients are very pleased with osteopathy and even the use of injections have been reduced in my practice in some cases. This method is complementary to orthopedic techniques and is a substitute for more aggressive methods.
