Norton Leatherman Spine is respected around the world as a leading provider of spine care. We also are the premier destination for patients in Louisville, Southern Indiana and beyond with cervical radiculopathy (cervical disc herniation or pinched nerve(s) in the neck).
Neck pain and arm pain don’t need to get in the way of living a full life.
Our skilled physicians have the experience to identify the correct treatment for a broad range of spinal conditions — including the most complicated problems — as well as neck pain and arm pain that affect many patients every day.
Our specialists know surgery isn’t right for everyone. If simpler treatments don’t work, and relief will come only from an operation, you’ll want surgeons at the leading edge of technology, using minimally invasive procedures.
International Reputation for Excellence
As the most comprehensive team of spine care specialists in the region, we will consider surgery for cervical disc herniation or radiculopathy (pinched nerve) only if other treatment options fail to provide relief. We’ll evaluate your case and give you a treatment plan customized for you.
Norton Leatherman Spine specialists are known internationally for their work. They apply the same level of expertise and care to common neck surgeries as they do complex surgeries.
Posterior Cervical Laminotomy/Foraminotomy
Depending on your case, our surgeons may perform a minimally invasive discectomy or laminotomy to remove the part of the herniated disc causing your pain.
In a minimally invasive procedure, we make smaller incisions through which we can remove the herniated disc. This relieves pressure on the nerve and helps relieve pain.
A smaller incision means you can get back on your feet faster and resume living your life. Patients typically go home the day after surgery.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) or Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (CDA)
New advances allow for minimally invasive approaches with less recovery time and less postoperative pain. Surgery reduces pain and restores function by removing bone and ligament overgrowth or disc material compressing the nerves.
The expertise of our surgeons helps us choose the right procedure the first time, minimizing the risk for complications or additional surgery.
