Damaged Disks: Debbie Yuss' Story | Video | Loyola Medicine

Patient free of neck pain after an anterior cervical discectomy

Debbie Yuss damaged the disks in her neck in a serious fall. After 13 years of living with pain in her neck and arm, Debbie came to the Loyola Spine Program, where surgeon Alexander Ghanayem, MD, diagnosed her problem. Dr. Ghanayem performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion on Debbie’s neck, and her pain disappeared immediately.
