Re: what kind of doctor do i see for a bulging disc

If you have MRI films that show a bulging disc then you'll want to see an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon and/or Neurosurgeon. I personally prefer OSS but many people prefer a NS so you may want to make an appointment with one of each.

I agree with SpineAZ....and I also prefer the Orthopedic Spine Surgeon over Neurosurgeon.
