Minimally Invasive Lumbar Microdiscectomy
Lumbar Discectomy is a surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the lower spine. The incision is made posterior, through the back muscles, to reach and remove the disc pressing on the nerve.
You may be a candidate for lumbar microdiscectomy if you have:
- Diagnostic test such as MRI, CT, Myelogram that shows disc degeneration
- Significant pain, weakness, or numbness in legs and feet
- Radiating pain (sciatica) worse than neck or back pain
- Pain, weakness and nerve pain that have not improved with physical therapy or medication
- Weakness or loss of feeling in the genital area, and loss of bladder or bowel control
Your care team comprising of our orthopedic and neurosurgeon-spine surgeons will correlate the results of these studies. After they have reviewed your medical history to help determine the source of your pain and provide specific details, they will provide the best comprehensive treatment options.
