The spine is one of the most important structures in the human body. It supports a large majority of the body’s weight, provides points of attachment for muscles and ligaments, and protects the spinal cord, which carries information from the brain to the rest of the body.
When one or more of the discs are damaged over time due to injury, trauma, or natural aging of the spine, part of the gel-like center of the disc leaks (“herniates”) into the gap between the vertebrae where the nerves and spinal cord are located.
Before undergoing your spine surgery, your doctor will prescribe a complete physical examination to assess your condition and to ensure that there are no factors that could interfere with your operation.
Specialized personnel will, from day one after the surgery, take care of your recovery by defining the most suitable rehabilitation program for you and accompanying you through the gradual recovery process.
