There are a variety of surgical approaches to treat disc herniation. Each type of operation is customized to the individual situation and it also depends a on the condition of the spine around the disc affected.

  • Microdiscectomy: This is performed through a much smaller incision. The surgeon inserts a thin tube with a camera on one end to see and remove the damaged disk.
