  • Prosthesis or herniated disc replacement. This is implantation of artificial vertebra. It is performed after herniated disc removal.
  • Spinal stabilization is a fixation of herniated discs with special supporting systems (implants, plates, screws). Doctors provide stabilization if the spine does not hold a normal position after hernia removal.

What are the new options for herniated disc surgery?

Among the latest hernia treatments are:

  • Minimally invasive surgery. A doctor uses a special microscope to remove a herniated disc. It allows seeing all nerves and vessels in details. As a result, healthy tissues are not damaged. A patient can return home after slipped disc surgery the next day.
  • Robotic guidance system A doctor performs all movements through small punctures up to 1.5 cm using a special robotic device. The system analyzes doctor's manipulations and makes them smoother excluding the "trembling hand" affect. Such surgeries are very precise and effective.

Is it possible to cure herniated disc completely?

The surgery allows completely getting rid of a herniated disc. However, postoperative screening of patients shows that a possibility of relapse in the neighboring discs is preserved. It is necessary to follow medical recommendations to avoid disease recurrence.
