A cervical discectomy and fusion surgery is a procedure that has been shown to be effective for treating neck pain associated with degenerative disk disease. The condition does not go away on its own and the only way to deal with it permanently is to have surgery.
Unfortunately, the procedure can be highly expensive and it is likely to increase in price over time. That’s why we offer sufferers of this disease help by finding a reputable and experienced surgeon in Costa Rica who can provide this service at a much lower price.
Due to age, injury, or lengthy bad positioning, the disks in the spine can become damaged and eventually causes a hernia in one or more of them. This can cause pressure on the nerves in the spine, which in turn cause pain and numbness. If the damage is left untreated, it can become permanent.
The surgery involves taking out the herniated part of the disk through an opening in the neck. Then the surgeon fills the space with bone tissue taken from another part of the body, a process called fusion. This is done to keep the disks from collapsing and to increase the stability of the spine. Recovery takes up to 6 weeks, and it often requires a neck brace.
For many people, cervical discectomy surgery can mean the difference between a life with constant, everyday pain, and relief. If you need the surgery and you are looking for a safe, reputable, and affordable option, contact us today and we’ll be more than glad to connect you to an English-speaking surgeon in Costa Rica.
