Surgery for a Herniated Disc

Herniated disk or ruptured disc or bulging disc is recommended for surgery if the condition of the patient has worsened. In severe herniated disc, the bulged disc presses the nerves or muscles exaggeratively and the pain troubles the patient a lot. A slight movement or motion of the body causes a lot of pain. In condition, the person almost becomes disabled and cannot make the slightest movements.

Before the herniated disk surgery is carried out the doctor would first confirm the position of the bulging disc and its severity. Magnetic resonance imaging is done to get the exact location of the herniated disk and its protruding nerves. If the images taken don't convince the doctor of a severe condition, he may not carry out the surgery. Surgery is the last option of treatment.

There are many advanced steps in the surgery for this sort of herniated disk of the spine. But, blades are not the first choice of many doctors. The surgery of herniated disc is called Microdiscectomy or microdecompression spinal surgery.

In carrying out the surgery, the small portion of the cartilage or the bone is removed under the nerve root. This relieves the neural impingement and more room for the nerve is thus provided. The nerve not only gets free from the thrust but also gets space for healing soon.

Another form of surgery for herniated disk is called Percutaneous Microdecompression or Endoscopic Discectomy. In this form of surgery, lasers are used for shrinking the herniated disc. This is the most advanced form of spinal surgery that treats the patient without any cut or tear.

After the surgery, the patient needs to follow certain restrictions and maintain proper postures for sleeping as well as sitting and walking. After two to three weeks, he or she is recommended some physiotherapy sessions for continuing for as long as possible.
