Herniated Disc Treatment

Herniated Disc Treatment

Dr. Tony Mork, MD located in Newport Beach, CA and Naples, FL offers endoscopic spine surgery as a treatment option for herniated discs. Typically herniated discs are a result of aging and the normal wear and tear on the body.

Herniated discs can be extremely painful and you may be considering surgery to correct and remedy the pain. The most important thing to know before back surgery is the correct diagnosis. This requires a careful evaluation and correlation of the history of your health, the MRI findings, and the CT when necessary.

Herniated Disc Diagnostic Procedures

Note: All diagnostic procedures are performed by Dr Mork

An MRI is always necessary and a CT scan when needed. In very rare situations like a far lateral disc, a discography may be necessary to image the painful disc. The discography can also help to show where the problems are located after contrast is injected into the disc and followed immediately with a CT scan.

Note: Sedation is used in all cases for painless and accurate placement of the needles.

Treatment Options for Herniated Discs

All treatment procedures are performed by Dr. Mork

An endoscopic discectomy is performed on the herniated disc, whether in the central or foraminal canal. This treatment is the most “minimally invasive” approach (7-8 mm) tube to remove the herniation (disc fragment) pushing on the nerve.
