Have you been diagnosed with a pinched nerve in your neck? This condition can cause pain that radiates to the shoulder or arm. Patients who have not improved with conservative treatment including medication and physical therapy may be candidates for surgery. Patients typically spend one night in the hospital, and almost immediately after surgery are relieved from the arm pain, numbness, and tingling. Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is one of the most successful procedures performed in spine surgery.
Low back and leg pain can be caused by a herniated disc or “pinched nerve”. Like most spine surgeons, Dr. Donahoe gets the best surgical results from relieving pain caused by nerve compression. Patients who have not improved with medication and physical therapy may be candidates for a minimally invasion procedure done in our same day surgery center. Using a microscope during the procedure, Dr. Donahoe removes bone spurs and the herniated disc to alleviate compression of the spinal nerves. Patients go home the same day and experience pain relief in the leg from “pinched nerves”.
