Current Alternatives for Treatment of Degenerative Spinal Disc Disease

The improvements in non fusion techniques for the treatment of degenerative spinal discs disease and the other related conditions commenced a new era of spine surgery. This new techniques are different from conventional fusion methods. Fusion methods for treating degenerative segmental disc disease which knowingly impair normal motion by disrupting articular surfaces and locking two or more spinal vertebrae segments as a single unit.
