If lower back and neck pain continues to diminish your quality of life, and non-surgical treatments have not provided relief, Microscopic Discectomy surgery may be the next step.

What is Microscopic Discectomy

Microscopic discectomy is the one of the safest and time tested surgical treatment for a herniated disc. It helps relieving the pressure on a spinal nerve root by removing the herniated portion of disc that causes pain.

Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. One small incision of 2-3 cm is made over the affected area of the spine. Muscle dissected near the affected area and retractors are placed which hold the muscle and skin away from the surgical site so that the vertebrae are adequately exposed.

Under microscope, the culprit disc portion is identified and confirmed using intra-operative radiology. The disc is then removedin a piecemeal fashion very carefully while ensuring the nerve is relieved of all unwanted pressure. The incision is then closed with sutures. The surgery takes about 30 to 45 minutes, the patient goes home on the same day.
