Thanks for the query.

I am sorry that your uncle is suffering with severe pain. As a spine surgeon, I can understand his symptoms.

Since he has severe pain, he will need a detailed evaluation by a spine specialist. Was the MRI scanning done in 2005? - If so, then repeat MRI is required. If clinically and radiologically problem is severe and related, he may require a non-conservative treatment.

Without the details of recent MRI reports, I am unable to comment further. Therefore can you post details of recent MRI report?

Awaiting your response...
