Diskectomy

A diskectomy is a neurosurgical intervention to remove a damaged part of a disk in your spine. The intention of diskectomy is to relieve the painful symptoms such as back pain. The herniated disk puts pressure on the spinal nerve which causes the pain. Not every patient suffering from a damaged or herniated disk needs a diskectomy. Generally patients are treated conservately, using physiotherapy or medication. In case there is no bettering of the symptomes a diskectomy might be indicated.
