What is Microdiscectomy?

Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to relieve pain caused by herniated discs pressing on spinal nerves. This advanced technique involves removing the portion of the herniated disc that is causing nerve compression, resulting in pain relief and improved function. At Synergy Health Partners in Metro Detroit, our team of skilled spine surgeons is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care to help you achieve a pain-free and active lifestyle.

Objectives of Microdiscectomy

  • Pain Relief: Alleviating pain caused by herniated discs pressing on spinal nerves.
  • Improved Function: Enhancing mobility and allowing patients to return to their daily activities.
  • Minimally Invasive: Utilizing small incisions and specialized instruments to reduce recovery time and minimize scarring.

Types of Microdiscectomy

  • Traditional: Effective relief of nerve pain, small incision, and minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.
  • Tubular: Less muscle damage, smaller incision, and quicker recovery time.
  • Endoscopic: Even smaller incisions, minimal tissue disruption, and often performed as an outpatient procedure.
  • Minimally Invasive: Reduced post-operative pain, shorter hospital stay, and faster return to normal activities.

Surgical Techniques Used

  • Microscopic Technique: A microscope is used to provide a magnified view of the surgical area, allowing for precise removal of the herniated disc material with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.
  • Tubular Retractor System: A series of dilating tubes are used to create a small working channel to the spine, minimizing muscle and tissue damage.
  • Endoscopic Technique: An endoscope, a small flexible tube with a camera, is used to visualize the surgical site through a tiny incision. Specialized instruments are then used to remove the herniated disc material.
  • Fluoroscopy: Real-time X-ray imaging guides the surgeon during the procedure, ensuring accurate placement of instruments and optimal removal of disc material.
