Discectomy / Microdiscectomy

Microdiscectomy is a surgery that is performed in patients with a painful lumbar herniated disc. The procedure is performed as microdiscectomy, in which an exclusive microscope is used to view the discs and nerves. The larger view of the nerves and discs allows the surgeon to use a smaller incision, thereby causing less damage to the surgery site's tissue. It is an outpatient procedure in which the patient can be discharged on the same day. 

The Discectomy/microdiscectomy center at UMMC combines experience, expertise, and innovations to the most appropriate treatment approaches. Our multidisciplinary team includes neurology, physical and occupational therapy, anesthesiology, and psychology, along with spine surgeons, physiotherapists, trained nurses, supportive staff. Their primary aim is to decrease pain and improve the patients' mobility and functionality.
