    Endoscopic Discectomy

    A discectomy can be performed in a traditional open surgical technique, or endoscopically as to minimize complications after the procedure. A discectomy is a relatively invasive treatment option for patients with persistent and disabling radiculopathy due to disc herniation. An open discectomy is performed in a surgical operating room, and the procedure involves a concurrent laminectomy and disc removal, with a lumbar fusion being possible to do at the same time. 

    A microdiscectomy involves a small incision followed by a hemilaminectomy and removal of the disc fragment that is infiltrating the spinal canal and causing the patient radiating pain. 

    Minimally invasive discectomies can be performed endoscopically, percutaneously (through the skin), or via laser technology.
