Private Orthopaedic surgeons providing Lumbar disc removal (discectomy)

Lumbar disc removal (discectomy) is a type of spinal surgery in which a portion of the damaged/herniated lumbar disc is removed. This procedure removes pressure on the spinal nerves and, therefore, severe pain. A discectomy is carried out under general anaesthetic. Recovery normally takes 6 weeks to 3 months. Possible complications are infection, deep vein thrombosis or damage to the spinal nerves.
