Lumbar Discectomy

Lumbar discectomy is a surgical procedure to remove part of a problem disc in the low back. The discs are the pads that separate the vertebrae. A lumbar discectomy is commonly used when a herniated, or ruptured, disc in the low back is putting pressure on a nerve root. The main goal of lumbar discectomy surgery is to remove the part of the disc that is putting pressure on a spinal nerve root. Taking out the injured portion of the disc also reduces chances that the disc will herniate again.

lumbar discectomy

Established in Busan in 1982, Wooridul Spine Hospital has been striving to be the worlds leading spine hospital with the state of the art equipment and technology. Based upon minimally invasive treatment principle, Wooridul Hospital has investigated and developed various spine treatments meets or exceeds patients expectation for minimal scars and fast recovery.

PHYSICIANS PROCEDURES 

Cervical Discectomy

The Percutaneous Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy (PECD) is for patients with symptoms of neuralgia by the compression of the shoulder and arm due to the herniation of the disc nucleus from a ruptured annular fiber. Unlike conventional surgery which requires skin incisions and the removal of the whole disc, the procedure preserves most of the disc tissue to minimize complications.


Hip Replacement Hip Arthroplasty

Total hip joint replacement involves surgical removal of the diseased ball and socket and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur bone and an artificial plastic cup socket.

Knee Replacement Knee Arthroplasty

Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.

Shoulder Replacement Shoulder Arthroplasty

Total shoulder replacement surgery is performed to remove all or part of the shoulder joint, and replace it with a prosthetic implant, usually to relieve arthritis pain or to fix severe physical joint damage.

Spinal Fusion Lumbar and Cervical

A spinal fusion surgery is designed to stop the motion at a painful vertebral segment, which in turn should decrease pain generated from the joint. There are many approaches to lumbar spinal fusion surgery, and all involve adding bone graft to an area of the spine to set up a biological response that causes the bone graft to grow between the two vertebral elements and create a fusion, thereby stopping the motion at that segment.

Artificial Disc Replacement

Artificial disc replacement offers a reversible, viable alternative to fusion that possibly avoids the accepted shortcomings of fusion. By inserting an artificial disc instead of performing spinal fusion, there is the possibility of reducing damage to nearby discs and joints. This is because artificial disc replacement allows for motion preservation, near normal distribution of stress along the spine and restoration of pre-degenerative disc height.
