If you are considering cirugía de la enfermedad degenerativa del disco after fully exploring conservative treatments and not finding the relief you need from symptoms, it is important to understand the full range of options available. There are different surgical techniques that can treat this condition which involve various levels of invasiveness and you should work closely with your doctor to find the type of surgery that is right for you.
Minimally invasive spine surgery, including the procedures performed at USA Spine Care, can have many advantages compared to traditional open spine procedures performed in a hospital. By understanding the differences between these two types of surgeries you can make a well-informed decision about your treatment.
Types of degenerative disc disease surgeries
Patients who choose to undergo surgery for neural compression related to degenerative disc disease should try to choose the type of procedure that will offer them the best possible outcome with the least possible risk and side effects. You should always speak with several spine specialists about the risks and benefits associated with different surgeries before making a decision.
For years spine surgery required a large muscle-tearing incision to access the area of nerve compression necessary to provide relief. Recovery required overnight hospitalization and a long at-home period before being able to fully return to normal activity. Due to new technology and refinement of surgical technique, it is now possible to perform procedures using much less invasive techniques.
The highly skilled team of surgeons at USA Spine Care are among the leaders in this approach to surgery. Our minimally invasive procedures offer the following advantages:
