At the Centro de la Columna Vertebral we offer non-surgical, risk-free, outpatient treatment with no side effects. In his clinical career and exposure to spinal problems, Dr. Eloy Ovando Sanders developed this conservative treatment with satisfactory/favorable clinical results for his patients. It can be used in conditions such as

  • Lumbar, thoracic and cervical herniated discs.
    • With grade I and II protrusions.
  • Extruded herniated disc.
    • Grade I and II.
  • Lumbago, Dorsalgia and Cervicalgia.
  • Mild Narrow Channel, Lumbar or Cervical.
  • Facet Osteoarthritis.
  • Post-surgical Fibrosis.
  • Spondylolisthesis.
    • Grade I.

It is a cutting edge method, non-invasive and with a greater safety compared with traditional spine surgery. It is an effective, non-palliative treatment that, when compared to surgical processes, is 5 to 6 times less expensive.

Our treatment for herniated disc is multidisciplinary and consists of the application of a comprehensive therapy that is based on 3 pillars, aimed at helping our patients recover without the need for surgery. The duration of treatment is approximately 5 weeks.

What is

a herniated disc?

A herniated disc is the exit of the intervertebral disc towards the spinal canal, compressing the nerves and ligaments that are in the area, causing pain that is quite significant sometimes.

Risks associated to

Hernia Surgery

Our spine is composed of 33 vertebrae, 23 intervertebral discs and a set of nerves and ligaments. The intervertebral disc is composed of a pulpy nucleus and an annulus fibrosus of mucopolysaccharide material that gives it a gelatinous appearance and is located between each intervertebral space. The herniated disc is the exit of this intervertebral disc towards the spinal canal, compressing the nerves and ligaments that are in the area; herniated discs are divided in 4 stages, according to the degree of output.

They are the output of the disc into the spinal canal, causing pain and sensory disturbances such as numbness, cramping and tingling. In most cases, they are produced by improper lifting of objects, accidents, overweight, bad posture habits and falls.

It is important to note that every 1 of 3 disc herniation surgeries fail, which means that the patient is left with persistent symptoms, and consequently continues experiencing the same pain. The risks range from infection, bleeding, fibrosis, among others.

Moreover, the high cost of spinal surgery during your hospital stay and the sometimes lengthy rehabilitation period are factors that should make surgery your last resort.
