Board-Certified Microdiscectomy Surgeons

If you are considering microdiscectomy to relieve your back pain, you can count on the double board-certified spine surgeons from Envision Orthopaedics & Spine in Atlanta, Georgia. Microdiscectomy is a surgical treatment that is used to remove lumbar herniated disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord.

It is commonly used to treat lower back pain that cannot be adequately managed using non-surgical treatments. With Microdiscectomy, a special microscope is used to allow the surgeon to view the disc and the nerves, providing for a smaller incision.

Benefits of Microdiscectomy Surgery

Microdiscectomy surgery offers several benefits over Classic Discectomy surgery. With Microdiscectomy, the use of a special microscope gives the surgeon a larger view of the affected area, allowing for a smaller incision (approximately one inch). This smaller incision causes less damage to the surrounding tissue and provides for shorter recovery time.
