Microdiscectomy at NYU Winthrop Hospital

Microdiscectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing herniated disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord. This procedure can decrease the pain caused by a herniated disc and allow for more normal movement and function with a faster recovery time.

This advanced procedure uses a special microscope or magnifying instrument to view the disc and nerves. The magnified view enables the surgeon to remove herniated disc material through a smaller incision than with regular discectomy. This results in less tissue damage and faster recovery time.
