Lumbar Microdiscectomy

Lumbar microdiscectomy surgery, also called microdecompression or microdiscectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves sciatica leg pain. This surgery is typically performed for lumbar herniated disc (prolapsed disc), and involves removing herniated disc material that is pushing on a spinal nerve root and causing neural impingement. It relieves pressure on your nerve and eases your nerve pain.

You can rest-assured you’re in safe, highly qualified, experienced and compassionate hands at one of our Ramsay hospitals.

Our expert spinal surgeons regularly perform lumbar microdiscectomy whenever clinically appropriate so that our patients can recover from their chronic leg pain quickly and get back to a better quality of life.

Our qualified physiotherapists can offer advice and treatment to help relieve your pain due to a herniated disc and for post-microdiscectomy exercises to improve the strength and flexibility of the muscles around your spine.

We also have modern onsite imaging services at most of our hospitals to help diagnose your leg pain.
