Information About Discectomy
The higher on the spinal column an injury occurs, the more risk there is
for catastrophic complications such as quadriplegia, paraplegia, paralysis,
respiratory difficulty and organ failure. When spinal disks or vertebrae
are badly damaged, surgery may be required. Discectomy is a surgery to
remove a ruptured or herniated disk from the neck or back. A discectomy can be
cervical (in the neck region) or
lumbar (in the lower back), and may be performed from the anterior or posterior position.
People may need discectomy surgeries because they suffer severe, chronic
pain from their injuries. Numbness or tingling in the extremities is another
common symptom of back and neck injuries. When the pain and numbness persists,
the affected muscles can weaken.
attorneys work with life-care planners and economic experts to calculate your past
and future medical costs. You may also be entitled to compensation for
pain and suffering, lost wages and additional expenses. We will aggressively
pursue compensation from the negligent party.

In addition, a
slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can damage the spinal disks or vertebrae.
