What is a discectomy and fusion?

A discectomy is a surgery to eliminate pressure on a spinal nerve by removing part or all of a vertebral disc. This procedure may be performed anywhere along the spine, but it’s most often needed in the lower back or neck.

When the entire disc is removed, a spinal fusion is necessary to stabilize the vertebrae affected by the discectomy. The fusion joins the bones on both sides of the removed disc so they form one bone.

What spine conditions are treated by a discectomy?

Your doctor at Spinetech may recommend a discectomy to treat:

Herniated disc

A herniated disc occurs when the inner gel-like center of the disc pushes through a weak or damaged area of the outer shell. This creates a bulge that pushes against the nearby nerves.

Degenerated disc

Vertebral discs gradually dry out and get thinner over time. Their tough outer shell also becomes damaged by wear-and-tear and injuries. These factors cause disc degeneration.
