Herniated Disc (Lumbar Disc Disease)

Because a herniated disc can present as simply lower back pain, it is all too common for patients not to seek treatment until the pain becomes overwhelming. There is no reason to live in chronic pain. Turn to the orthopedic experts at Jefferson for diagnosis and treatment of your lumbar disc disease, also known as herniated disc. Ranked among the best in the nation for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine by U.S.News & World Report, our neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians) and therapists have a total commitment to excellence in patient care, education and research.

Our multidisciplinary team will help to diagnose and treat your problem, and many times you can find relief with a combination of rest, medications and exercise. If these treatments don't provide relief, your surgeon may recommend that the herniated disc be removed.
