English term or phrase: Poker
Bandscheibenvorfall

I would need surgery to remove the damaged disc, during which they'd insert a poker chip-size piece of cow bone to keep the correct spacing and fuse the instability in my spine with a titanium plate.

German translation:siehe unten
Explanation:
term is "poker-chip size" - Die Größe einer Spielmarke, which may not help much in German
I'd just say "eine kleine Scheibe" since the English is obviously not very scientific (= written for laypersons)
