Herniated Discs: 
How Are They Treated?

Understanding Herniated Discs
A herniated disc occurs when the soft cushion of tissue between the bones in your spine (vertebrae) is pushed out of its usual space. This can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg. While some individuals may not experience symptoms, for others, the pain can be debilitating. Help is out there though, and we offer a wide variety of treatment options for herniated discs.

Disc replacement, also known as artificial disc surgery, is a minimally invasive treatment option for herniated discs offered at Total Spine and Orthopedics. This procedure involves removing the damaged disc and replacing it with a synthetic disc to restore the spine's natural movement and reduce pain. We can perform this procedure on herniated discs located in both the neck and the back.

Endoscopic spine surgery is a highly advanced, minimally invasive treatment option offered by Total Spine and Orthopedics for patients suffering from herniated discs. Utilizing a small camera (endoscope) inserted through a tiny incision, this technique allows our surgeons to directly view and address the damaged disc with precise removal of herniated material, causing minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. Ideal for patients seeking a quick recovery, endoscopic spine surgery significantly reduces pain and recovery time compared to traditional procedures, providing an effective solution for pain relief and improved mobility with minimal scarring.

In addition to these treatments, we also offer a variety of other minimally invasive options. Which treatment is best for you will depend on your individual situation and an evaluation by one of our board-certified physicians.
