Microscopic disc surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat disc herniations in the spine. During the procedure, Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj uses a specialized microscope to magnify the area where the disc herniation is located. This allows for precise removal of the herniated disc material without damaging surrounding tissues.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes around 1-2 hours. The patient may be discharged from the hospital on the same day or the day after the surgery, depending on their recovery.
Microscopic disc surgery has several advantages over traditional open spine surgery, including smaller incisions, less tissue damage, and faster recovery times. It is an effective treatment option for patients with herniated discs causing severe back pain or nerve compression. Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj has extensive experience in performing microscopic disc surgeries and utilizes the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for his patients.
