A microdiscectomy is a type of minimally invasive spinal surgery to remove any disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or spinal cord. The incision necessary in a microdiscectomy is a little larger than that of an endoscopic discectomy, but smaller than traditional open back discectomy. A microdiscectomy can be performed as an outpatient procedure, with most patients being discharged on the same day of the procedure. It is very rate that a patient may be required to stay overnight stay in the hospital.
