Discectomy

Discectomy Treatment Doctor in Ahmedabad

What Is Discectomy?

Imagine each disc in your spine as a jelly-filled cushion sandwiched between the bones (vertebrae). These discs act as shock absorbers, allowing your spine to bend and flex without the bones rubbing against each other. However, sometimes these discs can get damaged, usually due to wear and tear, injury, or aging. When this happens, the inner jelly-like substance inside the disc can bulge out or even rupture, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

When conservative treatments like medication, physical therapy, or injections don’t provide relief, a discectomy might be recommended. During this surgery, the discectomy treatment doctor makes a small incision in your back and carefully removes the portion of the damaged disc that’s pressing on the nerve. In some cases, the entire disc may need to be removed.

By removing the problematic portion of the disc, the pressure on the nerve is relieved, which can alleviate pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area. After the surgery, your body will naturally start to heal, and over time, the remaining disc material may fill in the space left by the removed portion.

Recovery from a discectomy varies from person to person, but most people can gradually return to their normal activities with the guidance of their healthcare team. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine and improve flexibility.

Overall, a discectomy is a surgical procedure aimed at addressing disc-related issues in the spine, providing relief from pain and restoring mobility and function.

What is minimally invasive discectomy and how it is performed?

  1. Small Incision: Instead of making a large incision, the surgeon makes a small one, typically of 1-1.5 cm, in the skin overlying the affected area of the spine.
  2. Guided Visualization: Using specialized instruments and techniques, the surgeon accesses the spine through this small incision. Often, tools such as a microscope, endoscope, or specialized magnifying lenses are used to provide enhanced visualization of the surgical site.
  3. Tissue Sparing: The surgeon carefully navigates through the muscles and tissues to reach the damaged disc while minimizing disruption to surrounding structures. This approach aims to reduce post-operative pain and speed up recovery.
  4. Disc Removal: Once the surgeon reaches the damaged disc, they remove the portion that’s pressing on the nerves. This may involve using microsurgical tools or endoscopic instruments to precisely target and remove the herniated disc material.
  5. Closure: After completing the discectomy, the surgeon closes the small incision with sutures or surgical adhesive. Since the incision is small, it typically requires fewer stitches and results in a smaller scar compared to traditional open surgery.

Minimally invasive discectomy offers several potential benefits, including reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, and less post-operative pain compared to traditional open surgery. However, not all patients or types of discs herniations are suitable for this approach, and the decision on the surgical technique should be made in consultation with a discectomy treatment doctor in Ahmedabad based on the individual’s specific condition and needs.
