Removal of a herniated disc

Surgical treatment here is reserved for selected cases where conservative treatments have proved inefficient. Surgical interventions may also be used in cases where irreversible neurological damage through the worsening of symptoms is a risk.

Hernias removed through surgery are typically ‘hard’ i.e. dehydrated, these can cause substantial sensory and motor impairments and rarely improve over time, explaining the need for removal.

The treatment is usually done with non-invasive technique (2-3 cm scar). In cases of major complications, it might be necessary to take a more traditional approach using a laminectomy. Some surgeons may also perform percutaneous disc decompression, using lasers. However this treatment does not guarantee the symptoms will not recur.

After surgery, a fitting rehabilitation programme is essential to ensure optimum recovery.
