What is Microdiscectomy?

Microdiscectomy, also known as Micro lumbar Discectomy (MLD), is a surgical procedure to treat painful lumbar herniated discs. One of the most common operations performed by spine surgeons is microdiscectomy. The ruptured or bulging fragment of the intervertebral disc that compresses the traversing spinal nerve root is removed during the surgery

During this procedure, a surgeon will remove parts of the herniated disc to reduce the pressure on the spinal nerve column. Micro discectomies are the same as open discectomies in that they remove the part of your intervertebral disc that is putting pressure on your nerve and causing pain.

How to Prepare for Microdiscectomy?

Surgical procedures may pose some risks. This risk percentage is paired with the patient's physical and mental health in a surgical risk evaluation. This examination involves a detailed review of the patient's medical history and the findings of x-rays, CT scans, MRI examinations, and other diagnostic tests. The preoperative assessment identifies physical issues (both known and unknown) that may lead to surgical difficulties.

How is Microdiscectomy Performed?

A microdiscectomy removes the disc tissue, causing pressure on the nerves

  1. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia
  2. Throughout the process, the patient will be asleep and unable to feel anything. The surgery is carried out while the patient is lying face down.
  3. An incision of 1 to 1 1/2 inches will then be made right over the afflicted disc.
  4. An illuminated microscope is used to assist the surgeon in seeing the afflicted region.
  5. The surgeon may remove a small portion of bone that protects the root nerve.
  6. Your surgeon will use a scissor-like tool to remove the damaged herniated tissue, relieving pressure on the nerve.
  7. Sutures are used to seal the incision.
