Discectomy Procedure

Discectomy is a surgery to remove the damaged part of a herniated spinal disc. A herniated disk (spinal disc pushes itself between the spinal bones) compresses surrounding nerves leading to numbness, weakness, or pain. These symptoms may radiate to your legs and arms. Herniated disc is also known as slipped, bulging or ruptured disc.

Discectomy relieves the pressure herniated disc puts on spinal nerves. Discectomy is now generally performed by minimally invasive technique that uses small incisions.

Performed under anesthesia, during the procedure, a small part of spinal bone and ligaments are removed to reach out to the herniated disc. Only the part of disc compressing the nerve is removed, leaving rest of the disk intact.

In case, the entire disc is removed, the space would be filled with a piece of bone. This would be taken from your pelvis or a synthetic bone is used while the adjoining vertebrae are fused through metal hardware or bone graft. Fusion is done in very rare cases.

When is Discectomy done?

When all non-surgical treatment approaches fail to respond and the symptoms get severe, Discectomy is recommended.

Recovery after Discectomy

The hospital stay is about two days. Fatigue and pain are normal to feel after the surgery. You will be on medications for pain while activity like walking and sitting starts within a day. You are restricted to sit for longer duration, or bend and twist your waist. Heavy weight lifting or any household chore should be avoided for few weeks after the surgery. You will be on physiotherapy for few weeks. Follow the doctor’s instructions.

Note (for foreign patients):

Besides South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), every year, India gets thousands of medical tourists from African countries- Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Ghana, Somalia,Gambia etc and Middle Eastern countries like Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Yemen etc. Hence, if you are a citizen of any of these countries, there is good likelihood that you will be meeting some fellow citizens or same language speakers in the major hospitals in India. Almost all the top hospitals have translators for people of these region. Our patient support team is also well placed to assist you.
