Frequently Asked Questions
Lumbar Microdiscectomy

Lumbar Discectomy/Decompression surgery is performed to remove a damaged or herniated disc in the lower spine. This allows the nerve root more space and provides it with a better healing environment. Depending on your particular case, the surgery may be performed through a minimally invasive technique, known as a 'microdiscectomy'.

Decompression Booklet
Lumbar Decompression
Lumbar decompression surgery is a type of surgery used to treat compressed nerves in the lower (lumbar) spine. Some patients may require a more 'open' technique, requiring a larger skin incision and removal of a small portion of bone (laminectomy) to take the pressure off or 'decompress' the spinal nerve root(s).
Lumbar Fusion

A Posterior Lumbar Fusion is performed from the back of your spine. During the procedure, metal screws and rods and cage are inserted to stablise (fuse) and strengthen the spine.
