Frequently Asked Questions


What is Microdiscectomy?

Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure done to treat the herniated disc(a fragment of disc which is slipped or bulging out in the spinal canal) of the spine. Only one half-inch incision is made to remove the portion of herniated disc and relieve the pressure on spinal column. It is an outpatient procedure. Microdiscectomy is also known as Microdecompression or Microdiskectomy.

  2. Then one or half inch incision is made on the back over the affected disc directly.
