Common reasons/DXs for Disectomy

Joshua Posted Wed 10th of June, 2020 10:58:27 AM
My company is putting together a pamphlet of information regarding our common spinal procedures. Can you please list some of the most common diagnosis/reasons people have a Disectomy? We're looking for the common reasons people have the procedure, along with any other relevant information regrading Disectomy/common diagnosis-reasons for having the procedure.
