What to Expect with Discectomy Surgery at Dignity Health Central California
A discectomy may be a helpful treatment for degenerated, herniated, or ruptured discs if you are experiencing:
- Back or leg pain that does not get better with other treatments
- Problems with walking and performing other daily tasks
- Difficulty controlling your bowels or bladder due to nerve compression or damage
Spinal discs are the soft tissue cushions between the spine’s vertebral bones. Dignity Health Central California’s orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons perform discectomy to remove part or all of the spinal disc.
This type of back surgery procedure can be performed with open surgery or minimally invasive microdiscectomy. The minimally invasive technique means faster recovery, less pain, and a lower risk of complications.
Physical therapy is key to your recovery and helps with the healing process and getting you back to your normal activities. Your doctor will work with you to create personalized strategies to prevent future back and spine problems. You can expect to get healthy tips regarding strengthening your back muscles, good posture, maintaining a healthy body weight, and using proper lifting technique.
