Micro Lumbar Discectomy

Category(s): Neurology

A microdiscectomy is performed through a small (1 inch to 1 1/2 inch) incision in the midline of the low back. First; the back muscles (erector spinae) are lifted off the bony arch (lamina) of the spine. Since these back muscles run vertically; they can be moved out of the way rather than cut. The surgeon is then able to enter the spine by removing a membrane over the nerve roots (ligamentum flavum); and uses either operating glasses (loupes) or an operating microscope to visualize the nerve root.
