My insurance doesn't cover the removal of lipomas, but I'm fairly certain they are the cause of my back pain because they are right next to my spine. Can that effect their decisions in covering such surgery? If so, are there any good surgeons for the job in the Detroit area, even better one that's Beaumont affiliated.
