Discectomy

  • What is Discectomy?

    Discectomy is done to treat a herniated disc in the spine. The surgery is done to remove the fragment of disc that is causing the pressure on the nerve. Discectomy may be done as open surgery, or as keyhole surgery using a smaller incision.

  • When you have a herniated disc, a fragment of the normal spinal disc has moved. This fragment may press against the spinal cord or the nerves that surround the spinal cord, causing your symptoms. Surgery will relieve your symptoms.
