Check out our client, Saville Spine Institute latest page update about Minimally Invasive Lumbar Microdiscectomy

As the discs that cushion vertebrae wear down with age, the pressure upon them can cause them to bulge or become herniated. This causes them to press up against the spinal nerves, which can cause pain, numbness, or tingling in the lower back or legs.

A lumbar microdiscectomy may be performed to remove pressure from the spinal nerve by removing the parts of the disc that are herniated and pinching the nerve. Historically, this surgery requires a large incision to be made on the back, and muscle tissue must be removed in order to access and operate on the bulging or herniated disc. Because of the volume of tissue affected by such an operation, recovery time for such a procedure can extend for months.

However, minimally invasive techniques allow trained surgeons to perform the same procedure with only a single small ½ inch incision. A small tube is inserted and positioned without significantly impacting surrounding muscle tissue. Surgery is performed through the skillful manipulation of microsurgical tools through this access tube using a microscope..

The result is the same spinal nerve relief but with far less inflammation of surrounding tissue, making post-operative recovery substantially less painful and time-consuming for our patients. Minimally invasive procedures also show lower complication rates than conventional procedures.
