For patients not responding to rest, massage, therapy, etc., the choice of a microdiscectomy may be offered. A skilled neurosurgeon who performs this procedure should be sought out. Microdiscectomy is a modernization of the standard laminectomy procedure that is designed to be done through a small incision, with minimal muscle and bony trauma, thus limiting the postoperative discomfort. Most patients can go home the same day and be back at work in a few days.
