What It Is
Microdiscectomy uses a special microscope to view the disc and nerves. This larger view allows the surgeon to use a smaller cut. This causes less damage to surrounding tissue.
During discectomy, the surgeon removes the part of the disc that is herniated and pushing into the spinal canal. Any loose fragments of disc are also removed.
