Microdiscectomy-Lumbar

Posted on January 22, 2018 to AOC Physician Articles, News and Press

Dr. Donahoe explains how low back and leg pain from a herniated disc or pinched nerve can be relieved by a Microdiscectomy-Lumbar procedure.

Low back and leg pain can be caused by a herniated disc or “pinched nerve”.  Like most spine surgeons, Dr. Donahoe gets the best surgical results from relieving pain caused by nerve compression. Patients who have not improved with medication and physical therapy may be candidates for a minimally invasion procedure done in our same day surgery center.  Using a microscope during the procedure, Dr. Donahoe removes bone spurs and the herniated disc to alleviate compression of the spinal nerves.  Patients go home the same day and experience pain relief in the leg from “pinched nerves”.
