It is a procedure performed to remove the part of the disc that is pressing the nerve. This is carried under general anesthesia.

 

  • An incision is made over the affected area of the spine, goingdown to the lamina, and the bony arch of the vertebra. 
  • They'll gently pull the nerve away to expose the prolapsed or bulging disc, and remove just enough to prevent pressure on the nerves.
  • In the end the surgeon will close the incision with stitches or surgical staples.

 

2. Microdiscectomy
