Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) Treatment in Dubai at Emirates Hospitals Group. DDD is a gradual wearing down of the spinal discs, the spongy cushions between your vertebrae. These discs act as shock absorbers and spacers, and when they degenerate, pain, stiffness, and limited movement can arise. While DDD is common our expects only recommend surgery if conservative treatments have not proved effective

Non-Surgical Management of DDD

These options aim to manage pain and prevent further disc degeneration.

  • Pain Medication
  • Physical Therapy: Strengthening core muscles and improving flexibility can support the spine and reduce pain.
  • Injection Therapy: Certain medication injections offer targeted pain relief around inflamed nerves.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Maintaining a healthy weight, practicing good posture, and avoiding strenuous activities can significantly reduce stress on the spine.

If non-surgical treatments fail to provide lasting relief, our expert DDD spine surgones in Dubai may consider surgery. The type of surgery depends on the severity and location of the disc degeneration.

Degenerative Disc Disease Surgery Options in Dubai

  • Microdiscectomy: A minimally invasive procedure that removes a herniated disc fragment pressing on a nerve.
  • Discectomy and Fusion: This combines removing the disc with fusing the vertebrae above and below for added stability, typically used for severe cases.
  • Artificial Disc Replacement: This newer and innovative approach offered at Emirates Hospitals is an approach that implants an artificial disc to preserve some spinal movement.
