Microdiscectomy surgery in Long Island (microdecompression) is a minimally invasive spine surgery for patients suffering from severe spinal disorders that cause nerve compression, such as degenerative disc disease and disc herniation. The procedure involves using a specialized robotic microscope to decompress the affected nerve roots and remove the damaged components of the spine, thus alleviating pressure on the nerves. This procedure alleviates the symptoms of nerve radiculopathy.
The microdiscectomy procedure is performed using a surgical microscope that decompresses the pinched nerve roots and spinal cord. The surgeon carefully spreads the muscles and soft tissues around the damaged discs, ensuring minimal muscular disruption. Furthermore, the incision used for this procedure is extremely small, minimizing the need for extended downtime. This is one of the least invasive techniques to remove diseased discs and restore spine stability.
