Spinal hernia: treatment in Israeli clinics
Spinal hernia is treated both with conservative therapy, when the patient is taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and by surgery. The operation is performed if the spinal hernia does not respond to conservative therapy. If there is an inflammatory process in the area of a spinal hernia, the patient undergoes a course of antibiotic therapy before the operation, aimed at relieving the inflammation.
With surgery, spinal hernias may require treatment when neurosurgery is performed by one of several methods:
- spinal fusion - elimination of a damaged IVD with the installation of a fixator;
- IVD replacement - replacement of a diseased disc with an artificial one.
