Minimally Invasive Microdiscectomy
For patients with purely sciatica or radiculopathic pain at a vertebral segment Dr. Pablo Pazmino may recommend a minimally invasive microdiscectomy to decrease pain at this area. Removing a herniated fragment should decrease pain and symptoms generated from the degenerated herniated discs and any undue pressure. Upon successful decompression, the nerve can begin the healing process in its new environment and resume near anatomical function. Our patients can return to their activities of daily living.
