Detailed Information

Microscopic DecompressionWhat is Microscopic Decompression? 

Spinal decompression is a procedure that relieves pressure and alleviates pain from the impingement on the spinal cord or nerves of the bone or disk. When an intervertebral disc ruptures or herniates in the spine and pressures neural tissue, such as spinal cord, nerves and nerve roots, a spinal decompression is carried out. It may trigger pain and other signs, such as numbness or muscle weakness, in the neck, arms and legs. Additionally, spinal stenosis, spondylolysthesis or a spinal tumor in some unusual instances are caused by neural impingement.

The surgeon will make an incision to treat the vertebra. To open the vertebra, gently push aside soft tissue, such as skin, fat and muscle.  To relieve the origin of compression, cut off all or portion of the vertebral component. Remove another compression sources; bone spurs or disk material. Ease the soft tissues and close the incision. Spinal decompression can also be done nowadays by means of a minimally invasive procedure, which enables the surgeon to dilate the spine muscles rather than separating the muscles. In comparison to traditional open spinal surgery, a minimally invasive decompression procedure usually leave the patient with a tiny scar.
