Potential Treatment Options
When the disc compresses the spinal cord or nerve root, removal is a consideration. The disc is replaced with an artificial disc to preserve motion at the disc space. Learn More.

During a lumbar fusion the damaged disc is removed from the lower back (lumbar spine), and the two vertebrae are fused together with a reinforced implant to create more support. Learn More.
