A Microdiscectomy at Oasis Orthopedic and Spine in Brooklyn, NY is an outpatient procedure. The goal of this minimally invasive procedure is to remove the portion of the spinal disc that is pressing on the affected nerve and causing your pain. To do this, our orthopedic surgeons use a tubular retractor and endoscope. The tubular retractor, which is hollow, is inserted through a very small incision, giving the surgeon access to the area of pain. Next, an endoscope, which is a small tube with a camera on the end, is inserted through the tubular retractor to locate the damaged material. Using other specialized tools, your surgeon removes the damaged disc material, alleviating the pressure on nearby nerves. Results can typically be felt immediately after this surgery.
