Degenerative disc disease of lumbar spine is seen frequently. Usually, the reason of low back pain at older age is degenerative disc disease. Radiculopathy symptoms are in the foreground in cases accompanying nerve compression. Conservative and surgical methods can be used as treatment options in lumbar degenerative disc disease. Surgical treatment options advanced during the last decade. Nonfusion systems have gained popularity with the help of developing technology. Due to the improvements in biological studies, treatment options have gained an exciting aspect. In the future, it seems like the treatment options without fusion will take the place of surgical treatments with fusion.
