Herniated Discs and Discectomies

Loading Feed



Hi everyone! I am new here and I am looking forward to the support of an online community who understand back pain. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon next week as I have not been at work since mid-September with ongoing radicular pain from a herniation at L4/5.I have significant other spine pathology also but this is the current pain generator. I would love to hear from anyone who has had success with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) for a herniated disc and DDD. I would like to exhaust all avenues before embarking on surgery.


just discussed my latest mri with the same specialist that performed my fusion. Now my cervical region c-5 c-6 has degenerated. Anyone had the cervical disk replacement surgery? How is it different from the fusion ?
