Microdiscectomy Treatment

Table of Contents

Discectomy is a very common lumbar spine or lower back surgery. When It is done with the MISS technique, it is called Microdiscectomy. According to a survey, this surgery has an 85% success rate with life-changing impacts on patients. It aims at treating nerve decompression due to herniated disc or disc degenerative diseases.

What is Microdiscectomy?

For keyhole surgery, a thin tube called an endoscope with a light source; a camera mounted on its top, is passed into the operational site through a small incision. The surgeon then creates other small incisions to pass MISS tools. The setup of keyhole surgery in Mumbai helps doctors better see and access the inner body, which can be operated on with the invigilation of the camera.

When is Microsdiscectomy Spine Surgery Recommended?

Typically, back problems due to nerve compression subside with alternate treatments such as therapies, medications, and steroidial injections. But persistent back problems make daily life difficult. Hence our surgeon recommends Microdiscectomy treatment in Mumbai. It is also recommended when:

  • Sciatica 

Sciatica is a nervous disorder usually affecting one part of the lower body when the sciatic nerve is compressed by a herniated disc. The microdiscectomy procedure removes part of the intervertebral disc or herniated disc compressing the sciatic nerve, thus restoring nerve functioning and limbs mobility in few days. 

  • Loss Of Bladder or Bowel controls

When the herniated discs interfere with nerve function and disrupt bladder and intestines functioning, the microdiscectomy treatment in Mumbai is recommended as a potential treatment.

  • Loss of balance

If the herniated disc pushes against the main nerve root canal protected in the spinal canal, the patient experiences balance loss. Microdiscectomy treatment is extremely helpful in restoring nervous functioning by reliving nerve distention.

  • Difficulty in living daily life

Though herniated discs can be treated with other conservative approaches, some cases do not respond to those approaches. The doctor then recommends Microsdiscectomy treatment in Mumbai to relieve nerves compression to resume nervous function and minimize pain. 

Our patients have reported improved motion, better physical and mental health after the surgery. Most people who could not even walk; can now exercise after the surgery.

Steps Involved In Microdiscectomy Procedure

The surgery aims to remove the disc or its part, exerting pressure on nerves. The surgery is done under general anesthesia that numbs the operational site. The microdiscectomy steps are as follows:

  • First, a  1 to 1½ inch incision is made directly on the impacted disc.
  • Next, the surgeon inserts an endoscopic instrument( microscopic camera and light mounted instrument) through the slit, making a channel for accessing surgery.
  • Then the surgeon removes a small portion of bone protecting the nerve root.
  • Then, the surgeon removes the herniated disc impacting the nerve root.
  • Finally, the incision is closed with sutures.

This is a one-day procedure, so you are discharged on the same day.
