Micro Endoscopic Posterior Cervical Discectomy


This surgery removes bone and/or portions of a herniated or diseased disc to relieve neck and radiating arm pain caused by parts of the disc pressing on nerve roots.

Micro Endoscopic Posterior Cervical Discectomy

When discs in the neck become damaged for any number of reasons, they can herniate and cause immense pain through the neck, back, shoulders and arms. A Micro Endoscopic Posterior Cervical Discectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that can remove the damaged portion of the disc that bulges against the nerve root and causes pain. The patient lies face down under anesthesia while a small incision is made in the neck over the herniated disc. From there, the surgeon can access the affected area and perform the procedure.

A cervical herniated disc may be treated by removing part of the disc through a small incision; If this is done from the back (posteriorly) rather than from the front of the neck, a spinal fusion is not necessary.
