Unfortunately, the only way is by digging it up. Bamboo has very aggressive underground stems that can be hard to dig out, and you won't get them all the first time, so you'll need to continue to dig up any returning growth. You can also add a herbicide treatment into the regime. Here is a link to some research-based Cooperative Extension information on bamboo eradication. It should be helpful.
