Microscopic Discectomy

A cervical or lumbar Microscopic Discectomy is a Minimally Invasive procedure performed to remove the herniated portion of a spinal disc or bone spurs. This procedure utilizes small cameras, proper illumination and small tubes through which specially designed surgical instruments are placed. Using fluoroscopic guidance, the instruments are precisely positioned between the disc space where the herniation has occurred. Once the instruments have been positioned, the offending portions of the spinal disc are removed and pressure on the spinal nerve is relieved.

This procedure requires an incision of about 3-4 cm and is performed on an outpatient basis. Our Minimally Invasive Approach avoids unnecessary muscle dissection and damage to the surrounding areas and utilizes fluoroscopic guidance to ensure accuracy. With this Minimally Invasive Approach, patients are able to return to their active routines much faster than with traditional spine surgery.

At the New Jersey Spine Institute, all of our procedures are performed by a team of two Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeons to maximize relief and minimize your recovery time.
