Dr. Sean McCance, a best in class board certified spine surgeon, is a herniated disc diagnosis and specialist surgeon in practice on the Upper East Side in NYC. A herniated disc is often referred to as a “slipped disc” or “ruptured” disc and can occur in the neck (“cervical herniated disc“) or the lower back. A herniated disc is one of the most common reasons for lower back pain and the cause of disc herniation tends to be due to inevitable wear and tear or sudden trauma. 

It is important to understand that herniated disc surgery is appropriate for only a small percentage of individuals with a herniated disc diagnosis. Dr. McCance will also only recommend surgery after conservative treatments have been proven ineffective in treating your back pain and symptoms.

“Dr. McCance is one the finest physicians I have ever met! He explained everything regarding my herniated disc surgery in clear language, respected my fears, and was caring during my post-operative period. The surgery was a “100%” success, and I am once again upright and pain-free. His support staff is as helpful and caring as he is, and again I thank them all for their kind consideration. If you have a herniated disc (or suspect that you have a herniated disc) then look no further than Dr. McCance. Thank you!” ~ RateMDs
