What is Lumbar Discectomy?
A lumbar discectomy is a minimally invasive spinal outpatient procedure that’s done to remove the herniated portion of the lumbar disc. It provides rapid relief from back pain and other symptoms that can seriously interfere with your day-to-day life.
At one time, treatment of back conditions consisted of open surgery that often included cutting through muscle, frequently causing even more pain. Fortunately, new techniques have been developed to treat many back conditions using this minimally invasive approach.
