Up to 25% of patients who have surgery for a herniated disc in the lower back will experience a recurrence of the condition. Known as reherniation, this condition often leads to a second surgery on the same disc.
Surgeons at the Stanford Medicine Spine Center are using a new approach to reduce the risk of reherniation. The technique features an advanced implant (annular closure device) to strengthen the disc for improved results and recovery.
Patients can be confident that we provide the latest innovations for a healthy back and spine.
