Degenerative Disc Disease

Review more Degenerative Disc Disease Testimonials to learn about our patients’ experiences with Dr. Darryl Antonacci and his Minimally Invasive Techniques


Degenerative disc disease occurs when our intervertebral discs, which serve as shock absorbers for the spine, gradually dry out as we age, losing strength and resiliency. Mild degenerative disc disease is relatively common, and treatment and pain relief may not require surgery.

Treatment Options

Treatment of more severe degenerative disc disease may include less invasive surgical techniques performed by Dr. Darryl Antonacci.
