Procedure, Preparation and Recovery
Microdiscectomy: This is a minimally invasive procedure where a small incision is made, and a microscope is used to guide the surgeon in removing the herniated part of the disc. Microdiscectomy aims to minimize damage to surrounding tissues and muscles.
Endoscopic Discectomy: In endoscopic discectomy, a small incision is made, and an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera) is inserted to visualize and remove the herniated disc. This approach also aims to reduce tissue damage and promote a quicker recovery.
Laminotomy: This procedure involves the removal of a small part of the lamina, a bony structure in the spine, to access and remove the herniated disc. It is often performed in conjunction with a discectomy.
Laminectomy: Unlike laminotomy, a laminectomy involves the complete removal of the lamina. This procedure is typically done when there is significant compression on the spinal cord and nerves, and more space is needed to relieve pressure.
Open Discectomy: This is a traditional surgical approach where a larger incision is made, and the muscles are moved aside to access the affected disc. Open discectomy may be necessary in cases where a more extensive removal of the disc is required.
Percutaneous Discectomy: This is a minimally invasive procedure where a catheter or probe is inserted through the skin to remove or shrink the herniated disc using various techniques, such as laser or radiofrequency energy.
