Back pain is a common problem that affects millions of people around the world. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, injury, or a herniated disc. While many people are able to find relief through non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, pain medications, or epidural injections, others may require surgery to relieve their pain and restore normal functionality. Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed to remove a portion of a herniated disc that is pressing on a nerve root and causing pain.
Why is Microdiscectomy Performed?
A herniated disc occurs when the soft, jelly-like material inside a disc escapes through a tear in the outer layer of the disc. This can put pressure on the nearby nerve roots, causing pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs. The severity of the symptoms can vary, but they can be debilitating in some cases. If non-surgical treatments do not provide relief, microdiscectomy may be recommended.
The goal of microdiscectomy is to remove the portion of the disc that is pressing on the nerve root and causing pain, while preserving as much of the normal anatomy as possible. The procedure is performed using a small incision and a microscope, which allows the surgeon to see the herniated disc and remove it with precision.
Microdiscectomy is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that the patient can go home the same day as the surgery. The procedure typically takes about one hour to complete, and the recovery time varies, but most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few weeks.
