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.

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