Disc Herniation Treatment in India

Disc Herniation Treatment in India

Herniated disk refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that pile up to make the spine. The discs are pads that serve as "cushions" between the vertebral bodies, minimizing the impact of movement on the spinal column.

The abnormal rupture of the central portion of the disc is referred as disc herniation. The most common location for a herniated disc is at the level between the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae in the low back.

  • Imaging test
    • X-Rays
    • Computerised tomography(CT Scan)
    • Magnetic  resonance imaging (MRI)
    • Myelogram


  • Nerve test
    • Electromyograms
    • Nerve conduction

  • Surgery: A very small number of people with herniated disks eventually needs surgery. It is recommended when a patient feels
  • Numbness or weakness

Surgical procedure For Disc Herniation

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.

Diskectomy: In this procedure the surgeon removes the damaged disk to relieve pressure on the nerves. It is performed in a couple of ways:

  • Open discectomy: This is performed via a cut in the back or neck.
  • 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.


Lumbar Laminotomy:Surgeon needs to remove a small piece of bone called the lamina from the vertebra. Lamina forms a protective cover over the spinal cord. Removing part or all provides the surgeon an easy access to the herniated disk


Artificial Disk Surgery:Very few people are good candidates for artificial disk surgery .This is because it only works on certain disks in the lower back. If the doctor thinks that this is an option,then he will replace the damaged disk with one made of plastic or metal. The new disk will help keep the spine stable an let the patient move more easily.
