cervical_microdiscectomy

Also called microdecompression, this minimally invasive surgery is performed through a small incision in the neck. The spine surgeon removes a small section of the bone over the nerve root. During this procedure, disc material under the nerve root may be removed as well. A microdiscectomy aims to relieve nerve compression and allow the nerve to heal.
