Disc Decompression Surgery in Atlanta at AICA
Disc compression of the spine is a common cause of chronic pain. Here at AICA Laser Spine in Atlanta, we perform what’s known as “ disc decompression surgery,” a type of spine surgery that decompresses the nerve and disc around the nerve root so that patients experience less pain and a better quality of life.
What is Disc Decompression Surgery?
With disc decompression surgery in Atlanta at our new ambulatory surgical center (ASC), our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to remove the excess damaged disc, bone, and tissue that is putting pressure on the nerve or nerve root. With great precision and specialized micro tools our minimally invasive spine surgeons remove these materials that decompress the nerve and relieve back and neck pain.
The incision is generally very small – usually less than 1 inch. It is the preferred surgical treatment for both patients and surgeons for patients that struggle with chronic pain from pinched nerves.
Why Consider Disc Decompression Surgery in Atlanta from AICA Laser Spine?
Here in Atlanta at AICA Laser Spine, we know how painful it can be when a damaged disc compresses a nerve.
