Lumbar Discectomy

Lumbar Discectomy at Winfield Hospital

Lumbar discectomy treatment is the removal of the herniated or bulging part of an intervertebral disc in your lower back. It is performed to relieve the pressure the bulging disc is exerting on nearby spinal nerves.

Nowadays, lumbar discectomy is often performed using minimally invasive surgery called microdiscectomy.

Here at Ramsay, our hospitals and their qualified and expert spinal surgeons regularly perform lumbar discectomy as a stand-alone procedure or part of a combination of lumbar spine decompression procedures. 

We perform microdiscectomy whenever clinically appropriate to allow patients to recover from their lower back pain as quickly as possible. We also have qualified physiotherapists and a fully equipped modern imaging service at most of our hospitals.
