More About Herniated Disc

Disc herniation is a common cause of neck, shoulder and arm pain, as the outer band of the disc (which serves as shock absorbers for the spine) breaks or cracks, causing the gel (nucleus pulposus) of the disc to leak.

Treatment Options

include in severe cases, Dr. Antonacci’s Minimally Invasive Discectomy, avoiding traditional fusion surgery.
