Using the minimally invasive (MIS) approach, Lumbar Microdisectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the herniated disc material responsible for applying pressure to the nerve root or spinal cord (nerve root compression) causing significant pain in the lower back and legs.
Microsurgical techniques and instruments permit the surgeon to ensure that during the procedure minimal tissue damage is caused thus allowing the patient to enjoy a less painful and a far speedier recovery than that experienced in traditional open lumbar surgery.
Performed under epidural anaesthesia
Patients are discharged the day after surgery. Follow up consultation(s) with surgeon required
