Microdiscectomy

At New Jersey Spine Specialists we offer the latest in advanced spinal treatments, and commonly practice microdiscectomy surgery, often referred to as a microdecompression or a microdiskectomy. Our board certified and board eligible top spine specialists have extensive experience performing minimally invasive back surgery for patients.

Why New Jersey Spine Specialists Perform Microdiscectomy Surgery

At New Jersey Spine Specialists, we perform microdiscectomy surgery for multiple reasons. A fragment of a patient’s intervertebral disc may have broken away from the vertebrae disc, which can cause severe pressure and inflict pain on spinal nerves and the spinal cord. Although, the patient’s disc may still be intact, the disc could be protruding or bulging, which adds unwanted pressure on the spinal nerves or spinal cord. By using innovative technology coupled with expert technique, our top-rated spine surgeons carefully and diligently perform this minimally invasive procedure to remove specific portions of the pain causing herniated disc, thereby relieving stress, pinching pain and pressure that has been placed on lower lumbar of a patient’s spinal column.

At New Jersey Spine Specialists, a microdiscectomy is a same day procedure and commonly outpatient. Natural healing occurs within a 12-week period. Our renowned Spine Specialists are committed to providing our patients with the best treatment options in order to alleviate neck and back pain and restore optimal spinal health and overall quality of life.

Find out if you are a New Jersey Spine Specialist Microdiscectomy Candidate

Our board certified and board eligible team of spinal expert surgeons hold value in exploring all treatment options before discussing any type of minimally invasive procedure with our patients. Patients who qualify for a microdiscectomy surgery tend to suffer from a herniated lumbar disc, resulting in spinal conditions such as Sciatica, which causes compression on the spinal nerve. Patients who suffer from lumbar disc herniation will greatly benefit from a microdiscectomy and should promptly seek spinal treatment when experiencing common symptoms of lower back pain, pain in one or both legs, buttocks or a combination of one or more ailments.
