Patient Conditions

Medical conditions associated with intervertebral disc degeneration, which include disc herniation, radiculopathy, myelopathy, spinal stenosis, and low back pain, constitute the vast majority of the diagnoses treated by spine specialists. In addition, musculoskeletal disorders of the spine and neck/lower back pain are the leading source of disability in people under 45 years of age, and result in national economic losses of over $90 billion per year.
