Hi Dr. Bartolomei. Thank you for doing this AMA.

I've recently been diagnosed with scar tissue around my nerve root after my second surgery for my L5S1 herniated disc. The scar tissue is what's causing me pain and numbness. What would you advise I do in my situation? Is there an effective treatment for this?

Secondary: do you know of any helpful scientific articles or specific keywords I could search for about this? I want to educate myself more on what's happening inside my body.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much. Can you share the scientific term for scar tissue on my S1 nerve root? I would like to read some articles on the matter.
