Lumbar spine surgery fixes issues in the lower back through various surgical procedures. The lumbar region of the spine is a complex structure comprising spinal bones, discs, and nerves.
A slipped disc, also known as a herniated disk, occurs when one of the rubbery cushions (discs) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine becomes damaged. The condition can lead to pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg. However, some people may experience no symptoms at all.
