  • Lumbar Discectomy and Laminectomy

    This minimally invasive procedure is performed through an incision down the center of the back over the area of the herniated disc. The muscles are moved to the side so that the surgeon can see the back of the vertebrae.

  • What is Lumbar Discectomy and Laminectomy?

    Some of the most common operations that we do for the spine are lumbar microdiscectomy and lumbar laminectomy.   So lumbar fusion surgery is sometimes necessary for back pain, but in that situation one has to carefully correlate the clinical findings with the imaging findings.


    For most of the common back operations that we do, lumbar discectomy or lumbar laminectomy, a fairly small incision is made in the back approximately inch, inch-and-a-half in length.
