ABSTRACT
Commentary about the evidence-based orthopaedic research conducted by Dr. J.N. Weinstein and colleagues is presented. The author states that the controlled trial about surgical versus nonsurgical treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis was of excellent quality. The author believes that this article will allow surgeons to recommend spinal decompression procedures for patients whose conditions are unresponsive to nonsurgical treatment.
