Atlanta Herniated Disc Treatment

Atlanta Herniated Disc TreatmentOrtho Sport & Spine Physicians is your trusted provider of expert herniated disc treatment.

We specialize in finding effective, minimally invasive solutions to complex spine and back problems, including herniated discs.

A lumbar herniated disc is a condition that occurs when one of the discs in the lower region of the spine ruptures. This rupturing can cause the gel-like substance from inside the disc to leak out and irritate the disc wall, spinal cord or its protruding nerve roots.  There are chemical and/or mechanical reasons for the damage these discs cause to surrounding nerves and spinal cord.  For some, this painful condition can be debilitating. The physicians and staff from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are dedicated to helping individuals with herniated discs find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and return to full function and a greater quality of life.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

The symptoms of a lumbar herniated disc can vary with each individual but may include pain, inflammation, pain that radiates down the legs, numbness, tingling and muscle spasms. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians works collaboratively with other physicians, Chiropractors and physical therapists to co-manage patients with herniated discs. We offer a variety of conservative, non-surgical treatments, including heat/cold, massage, strengthening exercises, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid/anesthetic injections and more.

In some cases, the pain and other symptoms of a herniated disc are so severe that they not able to be adequately managed using conservative, non-surgical treatments. In this case, surgery may be considered. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is proud to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery”). This advanced surgical technique offers significant patient benefits over traditional back surgery including minimal blood loss, fewer complications and a shorter recovery time. Using endoscopic surgery, we are able to help many individuals with herniated discs find long-term relief from their pain and return to work and normal daily activities.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
