A microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove damaged or excess spinal disc material that is causing pain by putting pressure on the nerves in the spinal canal.
A microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery to remove portions of a damaged spinal disc in order to relieve back pain. During the procedure, only the affected portion of the disc is removed to leave the majority of the disc intact and maintain the integrity of the spine.
If you have experienced pain in your legs, lower back, or buttocks for more than six weeks and conservative treatments have not provided relief, Dr. Bruggeman can evaluate whether a microdiscectomy is the right path of treatment for you.
If your pain has been diagnosed as directly linked to a herniated disc or sciatica, a microdiscectomy could be an ideal solution to rid you of the pain and get you back to regular activities. Schedule an evaluation with the spine surgeons at Texas Spine Care Center to see if a microdiscectomy may be a treatment option for you.
If you have tried nonoperative methods to find pain relief but your pain is still so severe that it is difficult to sleep, go to work, or perform everyday activities, set a consultation with Texas Spine Care Center’s lead spine surgeon, Dr. Bruggeman, to determine the ideal path for treatment.
