Herniated Disc Treatment in Israel

Spinal disc hernia, commonly known as a “slipped disc” is a condition when the outer ring of a fibrous disc (which is located between individual vertebrae) is damaged, and allows the disc’s central part to extend beyond it. Disc hernias predominantly occur in lumbar and cervical regions of the vertebral column, but can affect other areas as well. They most commonly develop in patients aged 30 to 60. The condition affects 1 out of every 1000 people. As the treatment process is relatively complicated, it is strongly advised that you seek herniated disc treatment by recognized experts, such as the specialists offering this treatment in Israel.

There is a prevalent misconception that a minimally invasive discal hernia treatment can be fully effective. Unfortunately, methods such as endoscopic discectomy, ablation, vaporization and denucleation provide only short term relief. The symptoms will return within three years, forcing you to undergo a repeat surgery.

They only disc herniation treatment which provides a lasting effect is a discectomy (resection of herniated disc) and fixation. Most commonly dynamic fixation is preferred; however, certain cases necessitate a combination of dynamic and static fixation. The decision regarding the type of fixation that will be used is made by the operating surgeon. Again, only surgical intervention can resolve the underlying issue and allow you to make a full recovery and once again enjoy a full range of motions pain free.

How do I Get Treatment?

As time is of the essence, if you have already underwent an MRI scan, you can attach the images to the contact form. It will allow our specialists to assess the damaged disc(s). Also, please give us as much information as possible about the symptoms you are currently experiencing. This will help our Israeli experts draft a diagnostics program for you before your arrive. The long distance consultation is FREE OF CHARGE. If you did not undergo an MRI before, a high-resolution scan will take place after your arrival in Israel.

Sadly, a herniated disc will not go away on its own, and it can’t be managed with medications or physiotherapy. The constant pain will grow stronger and stronger until the pain-killers won’t be able to help anymore. It will affect your day-to-day activities and quality of life more and more. But that’s not even the worst part – the hernia will affect other systems in your body, and may cause loss of sensation or even paralysis!
