More About Slip Disc Treatment

Symptoms for Slip Disc

The most common symptoms which are present are:

  • Back pain
  • Nerve root pain (usually sciatica)
  • Other nerve root symptoms
  • The irritation or pressure on nerve next to the spine may also cause pins and needles, numbness or weakness in part of a buttock, leg or foot
  • Cauda equina syndrome : This syndrome causes low back pain and it also causes
  • Problems with bowel and bladder function (usually inability to pass urine).
  • Numbness in the saddle area around the back passage (anus).
  • Weakness in one or both legs.

 

Medical Tests For Detecting Slip Disc

The doctor will normally be able to diagnose a 'slipped' (prolapsed) disc from the symptoms and by examining you. In most cases, no tests are needed, as the symptoms often settle within a few weeks. Tests such as X-rays or scans may be advised if symptoms persist. In particular, an MRI scan can show the site and size of a prolapsed disc. 

 

Slip Disc Treatments

The treatment options available are:

  • Exercise
  • Medication
  • Physical treatment
  • Surgery


Slip Disc Surgery

It is recommended only when the other options have not worked. Before the surgery following test are advised:

  • X-ray
  • CT/CAT Scan
  • MRI
  • Electromyogram or nerve conduction studies

 

There are different types of surgical procedures which are available:


Laminotomy/Laminectomy

  • In this procedure the surgeon makes an opening in the vertebral arch (lamina) to release the pressure on the nerve roots.
  • The procedure is performed through a small incision with the aid of a microscope. If necessary, the lamina can be removed. This is called a laminectomy

 

Diskectomy/Microdiskectomy

This is the most common surgery being used for herniated disk in the lumbar region.

  • In this procedure, the portion of the disk that is causing the pressure on the nerve root is removed. In some cases, the entire disk is removed.
  • The surgeon will gain access into the disk through an incision in the back (or neck).
  • Microdiskectomy : Is a new and less invasive procedure
     

Artificial disk surgery

This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia .It is mostly used for a single disk when the problem is in the lower back.

  • In this procedure, the surgeon enters through an incision in your abdomen.
  • The damaged disk is replaced with an artificial disk made from plastic and metal. The patient may need to stay in the hospital for a few days.

 

Spinal Fusion

  • General anaesthesia is required for spinal fusion.
  • In this procedure, two or more vertebrae are permanently fused together.
  • This may be accomplished with bone grafts from another part of your body or from a donor. It may also involve metal or plastic screws and rods designed to provide additional support. This will permanently immobilize that portion of your spine.

 

Factors Affecting Cost of Slip Disc Surgery
