Herniated disc is most often the result of heavy lifting, minor strain, or twist. The patient may experience pain in the lower back, radiating down the back of one leg. This affects patient’s everyday life. Microendoscopic discectomy is one of minimally invasive surgical treatment for this condition.
Microscopic discectomy/foraminotomy can be performed using a tubular retractor. This technique involves progressive dilation of the soft tissues, as opposed to cutting directly through the muscles. By using tubes to keep the muscles out of the way, the surgeon can work through the incision without having to expose the area widely. The incision is only 1.5-2 centimeters. This procedure requires high level of expertise of the surgeon and state of the art surgical instruments.
