Micro disc surgery is the removal of lumbar or herniated disc that presses against the nerve root or even the spinal cord. This procedure is performed as microdiscectomy that uses a microscope to see the nerves and discs.
There are several spinal surgeries that follow posterior approach under the cervical microdiscectomy. Lumbar microsisectomy is done to remove certain portions of the herniated disc that are inflammatory or irritating the nerve root. The procedure of microdiscectomy is done by creating a small incision in the middle line of the lower back.
The success rate is almost 84 percent. It has been found that 1 to 20 percent of the people who suffer from microdiscectomy tend to suffer from another disc herniation at a certain point in life. For multiple herniated disc recurrences, the procedure of spinal fusion is best recommended. To ensure that there are no further herniated discs, doctors follow the process of removing the entire disc and then fusing each level.
