A Microdiscectomy at Oasis Orthopedic and Spine in Jersey City, NJ is an outpatient procedure. Your orthopedic surgeon’s goal is to remove the portion of the spinal disc that is pressing on the affected nerve. To do this, we 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. Then the damaged material is removed. Results can typically be felt immediately after this surgery.
