Microdiscectomy (MLD)

Microdiscectomy, also called Microlumbar Discectomy (MLD), is performed for patients with a painful lumbar herniated disc.

Microdiscectomy is a very common, if not the most common, surgery performed by spine surgeons. The operation consists of removing a portion of the intervertebral disc, the herniated or protruding portion that is compressing the traversing spinal nerve root.

The goal is to relieve pain and numbness and allow for the recovery of any weakness that may have developed as a result of the herniated disc.
