Herniated Disc Treatment
80% of herniated disc symptoms resolve spontaneously
Studies show that only one out of five patients with herniated discs will ever require surgery. The management of these patients usually requires conservative therapies such as physical therapy, epidural injections, anti-inflammatory medications and bed rest. These patients should receive early consultation by a spine surgeon in order to coordinate and monitor progress with conservative therapy.
Only 10% of our new patients require surgery
Virella Neurosurgery is an extremely conservative neurosurgical practice. In fact, only about 10% of our patients require surgery. This is well below the national average for spine practices. Dr. Virella strives to treat patients as conservative as possible initially, utilizing techniques such as physical therapy, epidural injections, anti-inflammatory medications and best rest. When surgery is indicated we use cutting edge minimally invasive spine surgery techniques to help our patients get back to work sooner
