For best care our experts are there to help you

What is a discectomy?

Overview: Discectomy is a surgical procedure that is done to remove the damaged portion of a herniated disk in your spine. A herniated disk has the possibility to irritate or compress the nerves located nearby. A discectomy is performed to relieve the pressure of a herniated disk (also called a slipped, ruptured or bulging disk or disk prolapse).

Your doctor may recommend a discectomy if:

  • You have trouble standing or walking
  • Conservative treatment fails to improve your symptoms
  • You have excruciating pain
