What is a Microdiscectomy?

Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive spinal surgery to treat a herniated or bulging disc. So, if you have a herniated disc and non-surgical methods are not providing relief, our orthopedic specialist may recommend a microdiscectomy to decompress the spinal nerve to relieve pain and restore mobility.

How Does An Orthopedic Surgeon Perform A Microdiscectomy?

Depending on the results of a physical exam, imaging, and other tests, your orthopedic may use an endoscopic, tubular, or midline microdiscectomy to repair the herniated or bulging disc that is putting pressure on the nerve. It's this nerve pressure that is causing the pain. This minimally invasive surgery generally requires an incision of 20mm or less, which reduces trauma and bleeding. It also allows patients to heal faster so they can return to their daily activities without pain sooner.

What are the benefits of Microdiscectomy?

Microdiscectomy is a much less invasive and safer alternative to traditional open surgery that offers many benefits, including:

How long does a microdiscectomy take?

The minimally invasive orthopedic surgery procedure is performed while you're under general anesthesia and typically takes about an hour to complete. After surgery, you will wake up in our comfortable recovery room and are usually discharged home the same day. Since risks and complications are possible with any surgical procedure, you must follow your discharge instructions and keep all follow-up appointments.
