Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment & Surgery Options

The Bonati Spine Institute Treatments for Degenerative Disc Disease

These procedures may include:

DISCECTOMY for Degenerative Disc Disease

A discectomy is a surgical procedure which the diseased portion of the disc that is causing nerve compression is removed using specially adapted patented endoscopic instruments, and a laser is used to shrink and remodel the remaining disc.

LAMINECTOMY for Degenerative Disc Disease

A laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to treat spinal stenosis. The surgery is designed to relieve pressure (decompress) on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots through the widening of the spinal canal. The procedure is carried out by removing or trimming part of the lamina (roof) of the vertebrae in the compressed area. The removal of part of the lamina creates an opening for the compressed nerves, relieving pressure on the nerve roots and reducing inflammation. The partial removal of the lamina may also allow the surgeon to remove any bone spurs or damaged tissue causing pain and inflammation in the patient.

FACET THERMAL ABLATION for Degenerative Disc Disease

A Facet Thermal Ablation is a laser eradication of sensory nerves causing pain.


Debridement is the surgical removal of torn, inflamed, contaminated, damaged or dead tissue.


A Laser Posterior Decompression is a procedure which removes bone spurs or enlarged ligaments that are compressing the spinal cord and the nerves leading to the arms.
