Associate Professor Tan said, “We are certainly doing a lot more surgeries for slipped disc and bone spurs than we used to. Typically, we see more office workers who are working with computers suffering from this problem, with almost half of the patients who come for cervical surgery coming because they are at risk for paralysis.”
