Spinal Disc Herniation Treatment in Israel

Herniated spinal disc

Spinal disc herniation (AKA slipped disc) is a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc that results in the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond. Most often slipped discs are the result of age-related degeneration, however, they can also result from trauma.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

Symptoms vary depending on location and severity of herniation, and can range from mild discomfort to severe neck or lower back pain that radiates into other areas of the body (when nerve roots are affected or impinged).

Based on our long term experience, we can unequivocally state that all methods of minimally invasive hernia correction (endoscopy, ablation, vaporization, etc.) provide only short-term relief, with the symptoms returning after 1-3 years. The only technique that both provides lasting results and preserves a full range of physiological movements is a discectomy (resection of the damaged disc) with stabilization with a dynamic device. Israel’s Dr Ilya Pekarsky is one of the world’s foremost expert in this type of surgeries.

Sample Treatment Program:


  • Spinal MRI scan
  • Spinal surgeon consultation


Please note that cost of procedure will depend on the number of fixator’s required. Normally, the price will include standard preoperative preparation (ECG, chest X-ray, routine bloodwork, anesthesiologist consultation.

Provided there are no complications you will be able to get off the bed one day after the surgery; you can expect to be discharged within 4-5 days following the surgery and be cleared to travel back home approximately 12 days following your discharge.
