Microdecompression for Spinal Canal Stenosis

Microdecompression is a minimally invasive decompression procedure performed to relieve pressure from compressed nerves without adding any hardware, implant, or fusing the spine. This surgery provides relief in patients with compressed spinal nerves because of lumbar spine diseases, such as disc herniation or painful bone spur formation. The procedure is considered minimally invasive because the surgery is completed through a small incision and by pushing aside muscle tissue rather than by opening the entire back and cutting through muscle tissue as in traditional back surgery.

Spinal Canal Stenosis : Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spine around neural elements, like the spinal cord and nerve roots. Narrowing may occur from a variety of causes, including disc herniation or arthritis. Arthritis and aging can cause intervertebral discs to shrink, narrowing the space through which nerves branch out from the spine; they can initiate bone spur formation, which are bony growths meant to prevent movement at a joint, but can compress a nerve; and they can cause ligaments to grow, which can also compress a nerve.

Results

The technique affords an excellent decompression while minimizing destruction to tissues not directly involved in the pathologic process. Functional outcome scores doubled, and 87% of patients reported high satisfaction rates.

An initial consultation with Mr. Nazeer Moideen is from £200.
