3 common surgical approaches for Degenerative Disc Disease

Discectomy: This procedure removes some or all of a damaged disc, which can be helpful if it’s pressing on a nerve.

Spinal fusion: When a disc is severely damaged, it may be removed. To re-stabilize this part of the spine, the surrounding vertebrae are fused (permanently joined) together.

Artificial disc replacement: The damaged disc is removed and replaced with an artificial, or prosthetic, disc. In the neck especially, it can have fewer complications than spinal fusion.
