How safe is a microdiscectomy? Have I run out of options when I have a herniated disc 5?
Hello, A small portion of the bone over the nerve root and disc material from under the nerve root is removed to relieve neural compression and provide more room for the nerve to heal. Microdiscectomy is typically performed for a herniated lumbar disc and is actually more effective for treating leg pain like radiculopathy than lower back pain. Thank you
