What is microscopic discectomy?
Discectomy means “cutting out the disc.”Microscopic discectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a high-powered microscope to improve surgical lighting and vision through a 2cm incision, treating the herniated cervical disc with more precision and accuracy. The method removes a herniated disc without damaging the surrounding tissues. Hence, patients can return to their daily activities soon after the procedure.
