Microscopic Spine Surgery
A microdiscectomy is a surgical procedure to relieve pain and other symptoms that occur when a herniated disc in the spine compresses adjacent nerve roots. During surgery, the surgeon frees the nerve by removing small pieces of disc, bone, and ligaments. A small incision and surgical glasses called a microscope or magnifying glass are used to magnify the area where the damage has occurred.
