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.


What are the advantages of Microdiscectomy?

The advantages of Microdiscectomy are as follows:

  1. Eliminate pain caused by decompressed disc
  2. Can return to normal daily activities the following day
  3. Recovery period is very less
  4. Eliminates pain in legs, back, and buttocks due to herniated disc
  5. Outpatient procedure

  1. Sciatic hernia
  2. Leg pain since 6 weeks

What are the steps involved in Microdiscectomy?

  1. The patient is asked to lie face down and local anesthesia has been administered.
  2. Then one or half inch incision is made on the back over the affected disc directly.
  3. Herniated disc is then removed, hence relieves the pressure on the spinal nerve.
  4. After the surgery is done, the incision is closed with sutures and the patient is discharged the same day or the next day.
