Microdisectomy | Dr. Prem Pillay, Singapore

Microdisectomy refers to the technology of using a dedicated operating microscope with superfine instruments/microinstruments during spine surgery to remove damaged parts of the discs in the spine. These damaged parts of the disc (prolapsed discs, sequestrated discs, herniated discs) often are mechanically pressing on nerves and are the cause of back and limb pain.

This surgery allows a smaller/keyhole opening to be made by an experienced neurosurgeon with potentially better results and less damage to normal spine structures (bone, muscle, facets, ligaments) than normal open spine surgery. This can allow a faster recovery with less post surgery pain.

If you have tried other procedures or holistic treatments to no avail, then this might be a viable option for your spinal treatment.  Having a consultation with a well known and highly experienced neurosurgeon can help you determine if this surgery is a good option for your condition.
