Diskectomy: The operation:

A part of the herniated disk may be removed to stop it from pressing on your nerve. The surgery is done under a general anaeshetic.

It is done through a 3-7 cm incision over the lower back. A small portion of the lamina and the ligamentum flavum are removed to gain access to the involved nerve root and disc.

Surgery is done with loop magnification or a microscope.

The disc fragment compressing the nerve root together with any other loose fragments are removed. The whole disc is not removed. The wound is closed with dissolving sutures that do not need to be removed.      More.......
