Operative Spine – Microdiscectomy

In this procedure surgeons remove a portion of the bone compressing the spinal nerves, or remove disc material from under the nerve root to relieve neural pressure. Microdiscectomy is used to treat herniated discs or peripheral leg pain. All of the joints, ligaments, and muscles are left intact because a microdiscectomy cleans out damaged or out of place tissue.
