FROM OUR PRESIDENT CONNIE COFFMAN:

MY! MY! HOW THIS SUMMER HAS QUICKLY FLOWN BY!  I HAVE SOME STATISTICS THAT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN BEFORE I BEGIN MY INFORMATION ON SURGERIES FOR BACK PAIN.  FIRST OF ALL, YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED TO KNOW:  AS OF AUGUST 8TH, WE HAVE 1779 MEMBERS OF WHICH 434 ARE RESIDENTS OF THE VILLAGE OF FAIRPORT HARBOR.  SO YOU CAN READILY SEE THAT OUR CENTER TRULY DOES REPRESENT A LOT OF LAKE COUNTY!  THAT IS PRIMARILY THE REASON WE ARE WORKING SO DILIGENTLY TO GET THE TWO ROOM EXPANSION ON OUR EXISTING FACILITY!  NOW I KNOW THAT MANY OF OUR MEMBERSHIP HAVE ALREADY DONATED MONEY TOWARDS THIS ADDITION AND ALSO IN MEMORY OF SOME LOVED ONES  FOR THAT REASON, WE ARE NOW IN DISCUSSION WITH A GENTLEMAN WHO IS GOING TO DESIGN A PLAQUE FOR US TO INCLUDE NAMES OF THOSE THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED $125 FOR A PLAQUE IN MEMORY OF A LOVED ONE OR JUST A NAME OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED THE $125 TO HELP BUILD THIS PROPOSED ADDITION.  THIS PLAQUE WILL BE ON DISPLAY IN OUR CENTER AND WILL BE MOVED INTO THE NEW ADDITION WHENEVER THAT BEGINS.  THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED LESS THAN THE $125 CAN STILL HAVE THE OPTION TO CONTINUE DONATING UNTIL YOU REACH THE $125 MARK AND YOUR NAME WILL ALSO BE ADDED.  WE HAVE A LIST OF ALL OF THE DONORS IN CASE YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. 

NOW, THE MEDICAL INFORMATION I HAVE RESEARCHED ON BACK SURGERY (PRO VS CON) IS IMMENSE BUT I WILL JUST LEAVE YOU WITH THIS COMMENT MADE IN THE FEBRUARY 2013 ISSUE OF ARTHRITIS ADIVISOR FROM THE CLEVELAND CLINIC.  DR. RUSSELL DEMICCO, D.O. HE COMPARES A SPINAL SURGEON TO THE ACE RELIEF PITCHER IN BASEBALL.  YOU’D LIKE TO KEEP HIM IN THE BULLPEN AND NEVER NEED HIM.  FORTUNATELY, MOST PEOPLE NEED ONLY THEIR “STARTING PITCHERS” (E.G. NON-SURGICAL TREATMENTS) TO FIND RELIEF FROM HERNIATED SPINAL DISCS AND AN ARRAY OF NON-OPERATIVE TREATMENTS CAN HASTEN A RETURN TO PAIN FREE SPINE AND BACK ISSUES.  HOWEVER, SURGERY MAY SEEM LIKE A QUICK FIX.  A TRIP TO THE OPERATING ROOM, A FEW DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND YOUR BACK PAIN IS GONE-OR SO YOU THINK.  TRUTH IS, PUTTING YOUR SPINE “UNDER THE KNIFE” DOESN’T GUARNANTEE PAIN RELIEF.  THAT IS THE INFORMATION THAT I WILL PRESENT TO YOU NEXT MONTH THAT WILL HELP YOU DETERMINE IF SURGERY IS YOUR BEST OPTION (ACCORDING TO WHAT SPINE SURGEONS HAVE WRITTEN) OR WHAT ARE SOME OF THE OPTIONS ONE NEEDS TO EXPLORE BEFORE HAVING THIS DONE.
