If you’ve been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and conservative treatments have not been able to offer the relief you need, your physician may recommend surgery as your next option. After talking to your physician and browsing the web a bit, you may be wondering if your degenerative disc disease surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Outpatient procedures are a treatment option for degenerative disc disease
Outpatient procedures are often preferable over inpatient procedures, as they generally have lower costs, shorter recovery times and less risk of complication. At USA Spine Care, we specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery, and our options include outpatient procedures suitable for treating degenerative disc disease and many other conditions that affect the spine. Our minimally invasive procedures use less than a 1-inch incision and are muscle-sparing, making them a safer and effective alternative to traditional open neck or back surgery.^
Find out if you’re a candidate for minimally invasive surgery
Minimally invasive degenerative disc disease surgery is not an option for everyone and will depend on many individual factors, such as:
- Overall health
- Location of the condition
- Severity of the condition
Before we can perform an outpatient procedure to treat your spinal condition, we will first need to determine if you are a candidate for surgery. In many cases, patients who have tried various conservative treatments without success and have symptoms that are interfering with their daily lives are candidates for our procedures.
