During a microdiscectomy, or microdecompression spine surgery, a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and/or disc material from under the nerve root is removed to relieve neural impingement and provide more room for the nerve to heal. A microdiscectomy is typically performed in response to a lumbar herniated disc.
Many patients are able to resume work and daily activities soon after surgery. In some cases, our doctors may recommend a rehabilitation program after surgery, which might include physical therapy and home exercises.
