Microdecompression is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure typically provided when conservative treatments fail to alleviate leg pain. The surgical incision is usually less than two inches and runs along the midline of the lower back. The surgeon will remove the disc material that is pressuring the nerve root.
Patients will experience near immediate relief following the surgery. Surgery typically takes place the same day; however, the surgeon will review each patient’s condition and overall health to determine length of stay.
