A lumbar disc replacement is a relatively new procedure for treating lower back pain and relieving herniated and degenerated discs. Disc replacement is offered as an alternative to spine fusion surgery which causes limited movement and more stress on the back. This procedure replaces the damaged disc with a more natural implant that allows for more fluid motion in the affected area.
We also provide treatment for lumbar spinal tumors, deformities and other disorders. Dr. Khounganian is specially trained in treating the specific conditions of the lumbar spine.
