Cervical disc hernia
Herniated cervical discs, although less frequent than herniated lumbar disks, are particularly urgent to treat. They are some of the most dangerous pathologies of the spine because of the possible damage to the spinal cord and the high subsequent risk of paralysis. This is one reason why it is imperative to consult a neurosurgeon in the early stages of back pain.
The interventions for a herniated cervical disc are:
- Removal by cervical anterior
- Soft Hernia: Endoscopic operation
