What is moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis due to disc osteophyte left subarticular disc extursion w/ cranial and caudal migration?
At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?
Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment. ...Read more

C4/5 surgery risks: Compressed right ventral cord @ C4/5 due to disc protrusion. Spinal column 9mm. Severe bilateral foraminal stenosis. Pain. Risks to forgoing surgery? ANS: Only you and your team in LA can properly assess risks and benefits of surgery vs watchful waiting in you. You may want to get second opinion as well. Sounds serious to me though. So work with them now. ...Read more

Sounds like a fairly: Typical read for a male over 50 years old. Many findings are normal for age and sex as described here. They may not be related to symptoms or may cause symptoms. That is why a careful history and physical exam must be done in conjunction with imaging studies to fully assess the issues presented by the patient. ...Read more

Moderate size left eccentric posterior disc protrusion at L5S1 causes sever narrowing of the left side of the central canal left neural foramen and ?
Most disc issues are: Treated without surgery with 10% needing surgery. Most respond to time with 12 weeks of non op care which can include. Physical therapy, medication, epidural steroid injections, activity modifications as well as life style changes of not smoking, regular exercise and weight control. If still symptomatic with leg pain more than back pain, a disectomy can be considered. ...Read more
Post fusion, osseous bridging, spacer w/ slight dorsal protrusion right w/osteophyte ridging causing mild right sided central canal stenosis. ?
Disc desccation with posterior diffuse disc bulge at L5-S1 level mildly indenting the-cal sac and moderately narrowing bilateral neural formina?
Pushing on Things: If these herniated disks are causing pain then getting epidural injections may be helpful. However if you are doing OK and no pain, then I would leave them alone. Eventually they will heal as much as they can, but can take as much as 6-9 months to resolve. Unless you are getting increased pain or weakness, I wouldn't worry. Also start core strengthening exercises when you are feeling better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Disc herniation: Surgical intervention to the c6-c7 disc herniation is recommended or warranted if conservative care management fails to provide any adequate pain relief and/or progression of neurological deterioration. As for hemangioma and mild stenosis at c4, no surgery is recommended. ...Read more
