What is Laser-Assisted Microdiscectomy?
Microdiscectomy is the proper medical term for microscopic laser assisted disc surgery. It is minimally invasive spinal surgery that aims to preserve the wellbeing of as much healthy body tissue as possible. Diseased or damaged discs are trimmed to relieve pressure on nerves or the spinal cord, with the assistance of lasers and microscopes. Nonetheless, it is important to point out that laser assisted microdiscectomy is not the only available procedure to treat discs.
