We understand that being diagnosed with a thoracic herniated disc can leave you feeling hopeless. While many spine surgeons will correct lumbar and cervical disc herniation, they often avoid thoracic herniated disc treatment because the thoracic spine can be difficult to access with traditional surgery.

Barrow neurosurgeons have helped develop a new technique for safer thoracic disc herniation surgery. We utilize natural corridors in the body, specialized instruments, advanced navigation and monitoring technology, and surgical robots to reach the thoracic spine through a small incision on the side of the body.
