Discectomy

  • What is Discectomy?

    Discectomy is done to treat a herniated disc in the spine, also known as a 'slipped' disc. The surgery involves the removal of the part of the disc that is putting pressure on the nerve. It may be done as an open surgery or as a 'keyhole' surgery, which involves smaller cuts made.

  • When you have a herniated disc, it means that a part of the normal spinal disc has moved out of place. This may press against the spinal cord or the nerves that surround the spinal cord, thus causing your symptoms. Your doctor may recommend a discectomy to relieve your symptoms.
