Discectomy

  • What is Discectomy?

    Discectomy is done to treat a herniated disc (commonly known as slipped disc) in the spine. The surgery removes the fragment of disc that is exerting pressure on the nerve. Discectomy may be done as an open surgery or as a keyhole surgery that uses a smaller incision.

  • Having a herniated disc means that a fragment of the normal spinal disc has moved. This fragment may press against the spinal cord or the surrounding nerves, thereby causing your symptoms. Surgery will relieve your symptoms.

  • At Parkway East Hospital, you can look forward to receive treatment in a warm and comforting environment. Our friendly staff and specialists are here to see you through each step of your journey towards recovery.
